look: 4.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: AWESOME! Beautiful copper finish, crystal clear. Good head retention and nice lacing

Smell: Good hoppy aroma. Nothing outrageously great about it - maybe a slight undertone of vanilla

Taste: Good, but not grabbing me. Definitely has some pale ale hoppiness to it, but nothing that is really grabbing me

Mouthfeel: Slightly creamy, but I'm left with some bitterness that takes away from it

Overall: Looks better than it tastes. I bought a six pack of cans for taking to the golf course or drinking on the riding mower while cutting my grass. More than good enough for that (better than the typical Yuengling or Heineken you find in cans), but I think I'd rather buy Six Point in cans for that for now on.
