look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5

Beer arrived with a thin ring of head atop a clear yellow body. Nothing spectacular, but OK.

Aroma was slightly fruity, with some definite apple character coming through. Light citrus and floral hops were present as well. Not too strong.

Taste was of pale malt, with a slight hoppy flavor and hints of floral quality. Not too strong.

Mouthfeel was OK, nothing impressive, but not watery as many lower alcohol beers can be. Light and refreshing.

This one gets excellent marks for drinkability. It went down easily, wasn't heavy, and could easily be a session beer. It went well with the flatbread pizza I had, and would have gone equally as well with most other menu fare.
