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

Appearance: Pours a golden straw yellow color with less than a finger of a white soapy head. Body is moderately hazy with some very fine suspended sediment.

Smell: Cereal grain, grass, orange, hint of grapefruit.

Taste: Piney, grapefruit, crackery malt. Mild lingering bitterness in the finish. Pretty well balanced.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied, with medium/high, somewhat rough carbonation. Crisp and refreshing.

Overall: Definitely a decent brew. Refreshing and well balanced, but there's not really a whole lot going on. It's worth a try, though I wouldn't go to any lengths to seek it out.
