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

Appearance: Pours a clear golden color with a nice fluffy head; good retention and a nice lacing pattern

Smell: Shortbread malt, with hints of lemon, grass and mineral tones

Taste: Like it smells, with the shortbread arriving first, followed by the grassy hops; subtle hints of lemon and mineral tones

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with moderate carbonation

Overall: Nicely hopped, but a little sweeter than I would otherwise expect; nevertheless, I really enjoy this beer and have had it many times as it is often on the menu at local restaurants - surprised I haven't rated it before
