A: Pours a very pale yellow with a frothy head that fades quickly.

S: Light grain aroma up front with cooked corn and a hint of lemon.

T: Taste is barely there. Very light grain aroma with a slight citrus zest thrown in. Cracker like aftertaste.

O: Overall kind of underwhelming and forgettable.

Situation: NBC comedy Thursday... Glassware: Ommegang pokal... Appearance: champagne gold body with a thin but noticeable off-white head--good effervescence... Aroma: nondescript notes of Saaz hops... Palate: crisp, dry palate--a fizzy finish... Taste: mellow lager/pilsner predictability--not bad, but again...a bland blonde...having trouble distinguishing the variety in this variety case... Overall: I imagine a blonde should be crisper and more refreshing than its lager brethren; this is only slightly moreso, and I am straining to find the subtle differences between this and any other...

Poured from the bottle into a nonic pint glass. Looks like good till Jan 16th 2012 I think if I read the neck line correctly?

A very pale straw clear lemon body with little rising carbonation. A very styrofoam shocking white head, that falls at a good clip. Lots of snapping carbonation noise is apparent.

Light bready malt on the nose, some small small sweetness of even some sort of faint artificial cherry. Unfortunately it also smells like vomit and bile a little.

Taste is, hard to describe. Because there is hardly any taste of anything in this beer. Extremely light bodied but that's to be expected, seems about right for feel, but there is almost nothing here to taste except for some faint citrus flat soda. Some faint spiciness on the finish which is interesting.

Overall ridiculously easy to drink, feels like a total lawnmower beer, but really lacking in providing anything interesting to the palate. I can't say any reason to even drink this again.
