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

22 oz bottle poured into can glass bottled dated 5/29

A: light gold in color not much head but its pretty cold. Alittle hazy but that could be due to the cold

S: some grassiness and crackery malts maybe the tiniest bit of citrus

T: Not very fruit more grassy with light bit of coppery taste to it and some of that

M: fairly light body with just a smidge of wateriness to it

O: Fairly underwhelming beer nothing really jumps off the page at you or out of the glass as it were.
