January 26, 2015

12 oz bottle, nonic pint

A – Pale light straw. Very clear with mild effervescent bubbles rising to the top. Under an inch of white foam, with moderate to low retention.

S – Light pale malt, some sweetness from corn adjunct. The slightest touch of floral, spicy hops but very, very low. Aroma of any sort is pretty difficult to find.

T – Very pale malt, a touch of water cracker. Some mildly unpleasant corn, DMS-type sweetness from adjuncts. No real hop flavor, and only a touch of bitterness.

M – Moderate carbonation and a crisp, dry finish. No real discernible levels of bitterness. The corn/adjunct sweetness is not great, but it is also not overwhelming.

O – Despite the prominence of the adjunct corn, this is not the horrible swill it’s made out to be. Its main flaw is that it basically lacks any notable beer character. This is pretty fresh and goes down easy, meaning it’s not the worst thing to drink, ice cold, on a hot day.

Almost no aroma and the taste is essentially watery and slightly sweet with no hop presence.
