Poured way too cold into my glass, I get a little white head and a hazy, quite pale yellow beer with some fizz... I hate to say it, looks like a cloudy Bud. But it's not, so that's ok.
Smells a little weak with big rice upfront and a ever so slight pale malt sweetness. A little white grape and yeast comprise the rest. Not much here to be honest.
Taste: bland, ricey, slightly sour / lemon, not very good. Hint of honey. Again rather Bud-like. Just not much here, and what is here isn't all that great. Aftertaste is inoffensive and boring. Yes you could pound it, but why?
Mouthfeel is watery, thin, decently carbonated. Just very "meh".
This is my least favorite beer from an otherwise good brewery. I can't think of a single reason I'd try this again. It's not swill, but it's not even interesting.
