12-oz bottle into mug

A - slightly-cloudy body of straw yellow under a couple fingers of white suds, high amount of visible carbonation, decent lacing

S - grainy with a touch of fruitiness (notes of grape & lemon), weak

T - light malts, notes of grape and lemon, floral hops, spicy/earthy notes

M - smooth medium body, high carbonation

O - MO is not bad, just unimpressive. Everything else I've had from MB is better than this.

The beer pours a fairly solid gold color with pretty good head retention and decent lacing. The beer really doesn't look half bad. On the nose, there's really not much there, but I do pick up a hint of dry citrus and some light biscuit. There's not a lot there on the palates as well, though the beer does have some decent bitterness on the finish. Otherwise, this beer is very light, dry and a bit watery on the finish. Mouthfeel is light and crisp, with a soft bitter finish. Alcohol is completely unnoticeable.

Wanted something light after the big Thanksgiving dinner, and this was certainly that. Pretty hard to imagine ever drinking this again, no matter what the circumstances.
