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

Pours clear copper/orange-amber with a thin white head that becomes wispy. Dotted lacing sticks.

The smell is of light caramel-ish malt/grain with slight roast.

The taste is of light malt with some sweetness, a hint of lightly toasted bread with a hint of hop dryness in the clean finish.

Crisp. Light. Clean. Smooth.

In writing the review, I've noticed a repeating word. The label says that it is medium bodied, I'm thinking light bodied - but, I suppose that it is subjective. Anyway, if this is medium-bodied, it pushes towards the light interpretation of medium. It would have been a better brew if it had more body to it. As it is, it is a basic, easy-drinking amber lager. Decent for what it is.
