2.58/5  rDev +16.2%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from the cobalt bottle into a pint glass.

A: Super clear light gold straw color. An aggressive pour yields a half finger head that dissipates to a thin ring around the glass.

S: Very sweet. Akin to a cheap Riesling. The expected adjuncts.

T: Like the nose, sweet. Almost artificially sweet. Easy drinking.

M: Thin with moderate carbonation.

O: A great beer for non-beer drinkers. Nothing in this beer is imposing except for the sweetness. Not a quality I like, but many others might. The more I drink it the more the sweetness overpowers making it a rough session beer imo. If there was a category for chick beers this one would top the list.

Look, I may have just signed up on this site, but keep in mind that this was a beer that finally enticed me to review, and possibly because I finally got a smartphone. The 6.0% may sound enticing for the low cost, but don't be as dumb as I was, please. We work hard for our money, and we would be better off spending this money on something meaningful and more entertaining, perhaps a chinese finger trap... or a decent block of cheese from the grocery store (everyone loves cheese, yeah, even you, dude who says he doesn't like cheese.)

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

This poured with the roar of massive carbonation that built a huge head of light foam that dissipated quickly. The bubbling continued to course throughout the pale yellow to watery body.

The nose is of a stale malt and light corn with a touch of metallic aromas. There maybe a touch of piney hops and even a tinge of banana?

The flavor more or less reflects the aroma with sour, stale malts an a lovelorn flavor. The hop profile is fairly benign and this ends with a metallic taste.

The feel is surprisingly bland for as much carbonation but there s a harsh swallow.

BA puts a 2 as poor and I think that word is spot on.
