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

A - pours a pale yellow with a thin layer of foam that immediately dissipates.

S - smells of a weet full bodied pilsner with a hint of malts

T - starts off sweet, but not overbearing. Suprisingly smooth. Expected a much sweeter flavor due to the smell.

M - Light and smooth. Somewhat syrupy as it rolls across the palate.

O - light and not overly sweet. A pleasant surprise.

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

Pours gold/pale amber with a small fading head.
Nose shows doughy wheat with coriander, nutmeg and very faint citrus.
Similar flavours, although the nutmeg is more powerful. A bit too much spice. And too sweet.
Body seems a bit thick. I would have like it to be more spritzy and refreshing.

look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Pale yellow color with zero head.
Smell- Not much going on.. faint citrus and maybe some banana
Taste- Slight citrus, wheat, coriander
Feel- Good carbonation.
Overall this beer isn't anything special.. a step up from blue moon... would go well with some sushi.
