The beer poured with pretty much no head at all. It is a golden yellow and looks very uninspiring. Some fast moving carbonation bubbles running up the center of the glass. It smells faintly of wheat and a tiny bit of fruity sweetness.
The beer is slightly sweet and bready. The beer is very light bodied with a strong carbonation. It's not really a unique taste or extremely appealing.
Overall, this beer seems like just a bad version of blue moon to me. The taste is nothing you haven't tasted before, so therefore its not really a beer I would go out of my way to buy.

Sort of a pale to medium gold color, this beer does shine brightly though it shows a potential thinness beyond simply being light in body. There's lots of bubbling carbonation rising from the bottom, and it's needed as a foamy head struggles to surface. It does, though, and holds its own better than I'd think. Some reasonably decent spotting is also managed.
The aroma is very light, offering pale malts with some light citrus zest and sweetness both of orange and lemon. There's a hint of rind in there, though I get more the impression of watered-down juice mixed into dusty malts. I've smelled worse in a Blonde; more than anything, it's simply weak.
In the flavor, the weakness comes out to more ill effect than the aroma. It ultimately ends up making this beer taste more like a lightly flavored seltzer water than anything. Dusty malts actually go a touch astringent, it's got some corn husk, and it just goes way too thin and lacking in flavor.
It feels like seltzer water, too, and the best I can say is that at least it's crisp. Even that tingle falls off in the end.
