look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Poured a 330ml bottle into a Shaker pint glass.

A- pours a light and clear gold with about one finger of almost creamy white head. The head lingers on but doesn't leave any lacing.

S- some sweet notes of malt or bread. But more or less non-descript

T- Again, some malty sweetness but very little else. No depth and nothing distinct about it.

M- not bad. A nice fuller feeling, not watered down. A nice hint of carbonation

O- not the best but certainly not the worst
