Fizzy starting head that drops to nothing within 10 seconds. The beer looks like a lighter colored Chardonnay. Crystal clear.

The smell is quite mild. What little I could detect, was raw and grainy.

Hyper-carbonated--beyond soda pop. Again the graininess is dominating. No hop. I will not finish this beer. I think it's poor even by most macro standards.

A - clear light golden yellow pour, 1/4 finger of white head which dissipated very fast leaving zero lace

S - sweet, grass, musty, corny, some very mild lemon

T - the taste was similar to the nose; very mild, light and watered down. bland, boring. this left a rather dry metallic aftertaste

M - mild carbonation, light bodied

O - this was easy to drink due to how light and watered down it was but overall this was not enjoyable. i will not be drinking this again

An unremarkable macro brew, inoffensive, but bland.

Pours a soapy white head that disappears to a partial film, no lacing. Clear pale straw coloured beer. Looks like weak-kneed apple juice.

Smell is sweet and corny, on the apple juice side. Also tastes quite sweet and of corn and apple juice. Thin bodied, mild carbonation. Not offensive, just anonymous.
