Continuing on my quest to taste some of the Bottom of the List beers after a Memorial Day Weekend of superb quality brews.

A- Poured from the clear 12oz bottle to a pint glass with a translucent, pale golden body. A white cap begins to form atop the beer but fizzes out just as fast to a tiny ring. No lacing.

S- Opens up with some grain, corn and yeast notes here but fades after about two or three sips to almost nothing. Some lager yeast and adjunct funk comes out with warming.

T- Beyond the actual seltzeresque flavor of carbonation there is a faint note of corn, lager yeast, bread and light fruits.

MF- Perhaps the thinnest and most soda-like feel I have found in a beer so far. Somewhere between seltzer and soda with a watery texture. Carbonation very high and it burns the palate as there is no texture to smooth it out.

This doesn't offend me with bad flavors but it offends me because there is nothing here in flavor or body. I suppose that might be a result of stripping almost all calories out of the brew but it is not good in any way. Just a strangely unique yet terrible mouthfeel as well, it feels as if the beer was never on the palate after a sip.
