look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Medium golden color with a good off white head.
Aroma: Citrus
Flavor: "Sweet / tart balance up-front with a unique bitterness on the tongue. Alcohol notes seem to stay and dominate the mouth. The beer has a rather dry finish. Medium body, good carbonation.
Overall: The alcohol taste too dominate up front, and too bitter at the end.

Undated bottle at cellar temp into a goblet.

Begins lightly acidic and dry, ends the same.
Body light to medium, dry, soft carbonation.

Overall, drinkable but not one I'd seek out again.
