look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a clear, golden yellow with a white, finger width head. Fair retention. Lacing is spotty with decent stick.

Smell - Aroma consists almost exclusively of clean, sweet grain malt.

Taste - Just like it smells. Clean, crisp and sweet grain malt flavor, with a touch of honey. Finishes much in the way it starts. Very, very subtle grass bitterness near the finish after the beer warms.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium body, with good carbonation. Silky on the swallow. Very drinkable.

Overall - This is a classic, simple lager done right. Very sessionable. While it presents very little to think about, it's something I could drink all night while watching tv or hanging out with friends.
