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

Appearance: A light amber colored beer that is cloudy with some head on the pour that goes away after a little while. No bubbling as far as i can see.

Smell: I smell a citrus and coriander from the beer itself. Cinnamon and some malts.

Taste: a very bland taste. I taste the bitter citrus and the coriander as well as other spices. There is really no special taste to this beer.

Mouthfeel: High carbonation with a medium body makes for a okay mouthfeel but i'm not impressed by this. Not chuggable but drinkable.

Overall: okay. I don't know what they were going for here, but i'm not thinking spring beer.
