look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

On tap pours a very clear gold color with a lasting bright white head smell is floral subdued and dry grain like extremely crisp body is a little thin but not super watery crisp cold sliced apples come to mind on the palette flavors are subdued and not over the top floral hop presence brings about a nice dry finish to balance the slight amount of helles lager like sweetness that is also present in the beer subtle notes of dried pares along with a caramel sweetness somewhere in the middle easy drinking but nothing special at all.

just noticed I really had to dig for those flavors. A certain grainy macro beer flavor is present as well and takes away from the subtle notes that are difficult to find anyway. not a huge fan.
