look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Appearance: Gold color, hazy, Head is rocky with great lacing, and above avg lasting

Feel: Medium body with creamy carbonation. finish is lasts above avg and wet.
Velvety start and a crisp finish.

Smell/Taste: abundance of flavor. grainy, sweet, biscuity malt. Hops floral and piney. There is a robust balance of flavors.

Overall impression: Very well balanced with very good amount of flavor for it's style. This is not a style I jump at, and overall, this is not a beer that will rank real high on my overall list. BUT, given the style, it is great.
