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

A: pour is a yellowosh-gold, pours about 1/2 fingers worth of head formation that is very carbonated and thus dissipates quickly. carbonation is easily seen and the brew is mildly transparent.

S: smells of honey, lemon, hops, big apricot fruitiness, and slight grain.

A: more graininess here than in the nose but its not overwhelming. the fruitiness, mainly the apricots, as well as the hops help create more balance in this brew.

M: very light on the tongue, high carbonation, goes down very quickly. doesn't leave much on the palate.

O: i prefer more complex brews that have a bigger body. i was given this by a family member so I am very grateful to have tried it. It would be a nice brew for anyone first starting out in the micro/craft brew world. It provides a nice touch of simplicity, yet at the same time adds a few characters to help the palate grow.
