Picked up a bottle at Costco.

A: Straw yellow with less than half a finger of head and little lacing, thus little retention. Honestly, this beer looks more like urine than any beer I've ever had, Ugh.

S: Light yeast, and some creamy vanilla. Maybe faint hints of grapefruit. Not a lot really.

T: This tastes surprisingly better tan it looks or smells. Very light on the tongue, a hint of vanilla, faint malts, and a generally pleasant taste.

M: Light, effervescent, crisp, and clean.

It's not bad and it could be good to introduce a BMC drinker to craft beer, but at $5.99 a bomber, I probably won't have another.
