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

Clear straw-colored B/M/C looking beer. Does have a decent head. Looks like a pale lager with a stubborn head.

Mild wheaty base in the smell, but a sweet hint of honey as well. It's mostly lagerish but with some tweaks. Certainly not unpleasant; underwhelming.

Sweetish wheat/lager flavor. Has a nice honey that translates to a slight lemon. Aftertaste actually better than the "taste."

The feel is a slightly bubbly lagery feel. Somewhat dry. It's a light, minor drin. Pleasant enough, though. Good for summer. Goes down easy for sure.

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

Appearance: Pale, golden, straw colored; small head; dissipates quickly

Aroma: Malty; sweet; grassy

Taste: Malty, juicy sweet start; slightly dry and bitter finish

Remarks: Had this on tap at the naval base in Naples for the first time. Thought it was very good. Bottled beer later wasn't as good.

Did not score A, T, S, M at that time; disregard those scores
