look: 3.5 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

A: Pale yellow, one finger foam head. Almost lemonade like in appearance. I was not a big fan of it. 3.5/5

S: Lemony scent. Hoppy, but pleasant. Not bad. 4.25/5

Taste: Not a big fan of taste either. Up front, a bit watery, but hoppy. Lemon-y aftertaste however, which was decent. 3.5/5

Mouthfeel: Feels fizzy and foamy in mouth, but drinkable. Not swill, but not a rich, complex beer.

I feel this beer is a bit overrated.

3.5/5
