Bottle into a mini pint glass.
A: Clear-ish, Hoegaarden-like golden body with medium effervescence below a white, medium head. The thin bubbling of the head dissipated into a thin ring about the glass, leaving fine sheets of webbing as I drank.
S: Adjunct-y, with a corn twinge and little hopping. Not good, sadly.
T: Much better than the nose, but still only okay. A bit of tart fruitiness, very pleasant, but otherwise a bit of residual cloying feeling. Not much bittering at all.
M: A good carbonation helps this go down. Mid-range, and inoffensive to the tongue, it feels pretty good.
D: Low. This is not very good at all. However, I could see its appeal to a mostly BMC crowd, which might excuse its inclusion in an otherwise great winter sampler pack.
