3.53/5 rDev -5.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours a clear golden color with a solid 1 inch ivory head that lingers, eventually dissipating into a nice pool of foam.
Aroma is light, fairly grainy, with a touch of corn and slightly sweet malt. Floral hops are subtle.
Flavor reveals more complexity, though grain still dominates. There's also a substantial corny aspect to the profile. Slight hints of green apple are somewhat offputting, carrying into a lightly bitter finish.
Body is a touch heavier than expected, with significant carbonation helping to keep the flavor fresh.
Overall, a very sessionable brew. Wouldn't pay 3 bucks a can for it again, though.
Serving type: can
