Pours a pale gold with a one finger white colored head. Head disappears quickly. Minimal lacing. Very clear.

Very little aroma. A little bit of grain. Just a touch of floral hops.

Taste is grainy malt and grass. Just a bit of spiciness. Not much going on. Very bland.

Thin mouth feel with crisp carbonation. No aftertaste.

Rather bland beer all in all. Not far off from a BMC AAL.

Just not great. Was lacking the crispness I would expect from the style. Not very impressive.
