look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.25

Appearance: Clear golden yellow with a white as snow head.

Smell: A sweet malty aroma.

Taste: Similar to the nose, a rather sweet initial taste of malts that bitters out on the tongue.

Mouthfeel: Super super smooth and drinkable.

Overall: I was very impressed with this beer for how smooth it was. VERY drinkable. It tasted similar to boddingtons or john smiths, i enjoyed this a lot.
