look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a super bright sunlight golden, slightly cloudy and huge pure white head. Doesn't stick much to my glass.

Smells of grass and yeast and pastures in the sunlight.

Tastes bright and slightly tangy, hints of citrus and lots of yeasty goodness.

A little fizz at first to make it feel light, and a great smooth middle and finish.

A great session beer, easy drinking, light and nice, not too much fizz to bloat, and a great drinking beer.

DOA
