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

Poured into a mini pint glass, color is translucent pale gold, small thin head but a light ring, no lacing.

Smell is nothing to note, mild pale/pilsner malt flavors and just a touch of hop bitterness.

Taste actually somewhat fruity up front, more on the malt sweet type of fruit flavor with a bitter finish. Interesting flavors for lager but a little to sweet for me.

Mouthfeel is actually ok for the fruity taste, i think the hop bitterness comes through to finish of odd flavors.

Overall, a drinkable beer, hinted at a touch of cider in a piles or pale ale.
