Pure bone white head, bleached of all color, not a lot of depth, dissolves down swiftly, leaves no lacing behind. The color is extremely washed out, while gauzy about the palest yellow seen in some time. Nose is light as well, gossamer lemon and orange peel, clove and nutmeg spice, rose hips, vague banana and estery fruit scents, nothing much going on here. Medium-bodied, has weight but the flavors are about as dilute as can be imagined, might be attributable to the scourge of being "organic" which in beer-speak means stripped of flavor intensity. Attenuated orange, lemon citrus, that same clove, coriander, nutmeg stuff, no malts nor real hoppy zing. Tenuous sourdough and metallic water notes. The carbonation level is fine and appropriate per se but appears greater as there's nothing to really carbonate. Cannot accuse it of a watery finish as that would mean it dropped off from something denser. Better than a Coors Light, I will admit that.
