I had reviewed this beer, and BA lost the review within seconds of my leaving it. The finer points:

Pale yellow. Pure white head, moderately sized, pretty good patchy lacing.

Difficulty drawing out a faint aroma. Pale malts, grains, bit of sweetness, touch of grass.

Flavor is malty, pale with some caramel sweetness, grass, light grains undertone, faint hops bitterness.

Mouthfeel is overcarbonated, obviously light-bodied, crisp and clean.
