3.15/5  rDev -11%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Hazy, light amber colour with a thin, off-white collar. The aroma was mild, light citrus with perhaps a hint of malt. Medium to low bitterness, some nice malt flavours - caramel and toast, bready. Hops were very restrained, but there was a light fruitiness and faint spicy alcohol in the finish. Medium body with carbonation a little lower than average, smooth with faint alcohol warmth. Not bad, but it didn't look pretty and didn't smell like much.

Served on tap in a pint glass.

A- Very nice amber coloring without much head.

S- A little hoppy, but mostly tastes like a helles.

T- Decently hoppy, but leaves a funny after taste in your mouth.

M- Bitter and dry. Has a fairly dry finish.

D- Pretty drinkable beer. Not overly dry or bitter, but definitely noticeable.
