Served in a can at the Nag's Head in Hoboken, NJ
A: Pours a crystal clear pale golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible active carbonation and some medium + lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a sudsy one finger tall bright white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of corn, rice, and just a hint of grainy adjunct malts with a hint of grassy hops.
T: Upfront there is a light to moderate vegetal malt flavor with corn featuring fairly strongly and some lighter hints of rice and grain - this beer is all adjunct malts. There is a hint of grassy hops and a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades pretty quickly.
M: Light bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.
O: While the appearance is spot on for the style, the aroma and the taste border on the slightly offensive. This is not a very enjoyable beer to drink (slightly over carbonated) and definitely not one that I would grab again - or have another during a session. I actually remember this being slightly better from my college days but that was a long time ago and I likely had forgotten some of the badness. Also, just to note that the flavor actual gets worse as it warms up so I recommend drinking it extremely cold and quickly.
