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

A: Cloudy orange with a purple tint to it. Large white head, little spotty lacing

S: Malts, adjunct grains, raspberry in background

T: Sweet malts and adjunct grains, subtle hint of fruity raspberry, little hop bitterness at end

M: Light, good carbonation

O: Basically a light American lager with some raspberries thrown in. This is not a bad thing just what it is. I like picking this up from time to time to have on hot days.
