Oklahoma

1.63/5  rDev -11.9%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

GLASS: Pilsener Glass
TEMP: Chilled to approx 38 degrees (Warmed while drinking)
22oz Bottle purchased in Kansas (Full-strength)

This is the most pale shade of golden yellow that I've yet to come across in a beer. It forms a thin and loose head of foam, which dissipates rapidly, leaving a spotty surface film. The lacing is in thin strands and is very slippery.

The smell is muted to the point of almost being non-existent. After searching, I find light hints of corn and vegetal notes, with slight traces of a metallic note.

Okay, if someone had an old and dented can of corn, they could pour the juice into a glass. Then they could add a couple of Alka-Seltzer tabs and they would have a very close representation of what this tastes like. It is bland and bubbly, like Alka-Seltzer, yet has a hint of corn and metal.

Light body and an almost high level of carbonation. It's crisp with a slight touch of sharpness to it.

If I never have to taste this again, I'll die a happy man.
