Translucent, lemon yellow brew. Pours a white head with poor retention and moderate lacing. Lots of visible bubbles.
Smell of corn meal and faint lemon.
Lemon tartness carries into the flavor. Mild honey sweetness. Touch of banana and a smooth yeasty character. Minimal hops, fitting for the style. Lots of interesting flavors but once you taste the biscuity grains it fades quickly to a flavor so clean, you will think you just drank water.
Light to medium bodied, lots of carbonation and a dull, wet texture.
Drinkability is high with this one due to the lightness and lack of aftertaste. However, drinkability is usually one of the last things I look for in a beer. This beer definitely has some things going for it but it would be much better with a more flavorful finish and substantial texture on the palate.
