look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

A: Pours a crystal clear medium amber in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation slowly rising from the bottom of the glass and some copper highlights. The beer has a half finger tall sudsy foamy dark beige head that slowly reduces to a couple of small thick patches surrounded by a very thin film covering the remainder of the surface of the beer and a thick ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of caramel and toffee sweetness from the malts with light to moderate aromas of floral and grassy hops. There is a hint of citrus/grapefruit hops as well.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of caramel and toffee malts which impart a light to moderate amount of sweetness. That is followed by light to moderate flavors of floral, citrus/grapefruit, and grassy hops with just a touch of pine hops. Light to moderate amounts of bitterness which does not linger for too long.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation.

O: Interesting but not really anything special. Easy to drink but not one that I will be picking up again.
