look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured chilled in flared glass.

A: thin head; peachy copper color, slightly cloudy; lots of carbonation
S: after an initial whiff of stale malts and rubber, it opens up into a light but pleasant aroma of (normal) malt
T: moderately hopped pale ale; tones of caramel, cola, roasted grains; semisweet; not bitter at all; light but flavorful

An ok lager, ideal for when you don't want to think much about your beer.
