look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle split between two pint glasses. Best by 3/11/14.

Pours clear golden with a small head. Medium amount of active carbonation. Smell is lagery, lemony, yeasty, a little spicy, maybe a slight hops presence in the lemony/citrus aroma.

Taste is sweet, pleasant, more of that lemoniness. Bitterish aftertaste, some of that lager tang.

Mouthfeel is dry and slick. Overall, not bad.
