Poured into a Pint Glass

Appearance - Hazy Golden Color with quite a bit of carbonation. Head retention is decent and the lacing is sticky and very abundant.

Smell - Wheat & Grassy Notes along with some grainy, biscuit notes. But overall, the smell isn't really there, halfway being to non-existent almost.

Taste - Wheat, Barley, Yeasts and some malts. Flavor is a bit stronger here but nothing remarkable about it. Still it's quite tolerable and, to it's credit, still very drinkable.

Mouthfeel - It's light bodied and the carbonation is mild. It's got a crisp feel to it and even feels refreshing.

Overall - There's nothing remarkable about this beer other than it's refreshing and drinkable. It would've been cool had there been some more flavor, but for what is it's alright.
