12oz bottle served in a mug.

pours your typical AAL/ light lager clear straw yellow (even lighter, if that's possible) while yielding a thin fizzy head that lapses immediately and leave zero lacing.

the nose offers nothing. i mean nothing. after nearly snorting the beer up my nose i detect a hint of grain.

flavor? misnomer. similar to the aroma, there just is an absence of it. some sweetness and exceptionally subtle corn notes. light bodied mouthfeel with medium-high carbonation.

overall, complete waste of time. the only thing it has going for it is that it's not actively repulsive. this one was offered to me and i accepted having never had it. my advice? don't waste your time.

Somebody at my New Year's party had a sixer of this wildly popular beer and I asked for a few ounces to try as a lark.

Appearance: lemon yellow, no head, light lacing

Smell: Perhaps some light lemons

Taste: Uh, distilled water? Very smooth, but where's the taste?

Mouthfeel: Light; low carbonation.

Overall: If I ever need watered down lemonade, I'll make it myself. A tasteless, practically odorless mess. Why so many people drink this is an absurdly odd statement about how badly people need to sample more craft beer.
