I keep trying this in the hopes that all the friendly suggestions I got for it weren't wrong. It's not a bad beer but it's really inconsistent and doesn't stand out in any setting I've had. Overly carbonated yellow-golder color with a fluffy white head that faded quickly. Nothing but a bit of grass on the nose, really really slight and almost nonexistent. Mostly you smelled acidic bubbles bursting. OK malting and hops but nothing special and each time I've had it, it has varied quite a bit. A bit thin and the carbonation was too much.

This beer is a pale gold that has some brightness, and it has absolute clarity in its body. It grows more of a film than a head but a thick one, and that recedes to a wisp and some edging that does manage light spotting.
It's somewhat vegetal but not sloppily so with grains that, while prominent, don't domineer or go that oddly astringent direction that some beers can take. There's a bit of bright, fairly sweet citrus and a kiss of something floral. All in all, for a style that certainly seems like a weaker one, this holds down as average.
The body is light and goes semi-dry only toward the finish. It's quite crisp all the way, and more than moderately clean. It's got a bit of smoothness to it as well. Alcohol surprises with some unexpected heat partway through.
