Poured a 341-ml bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance - pale straw yellow colour with bright white 1/2-inch head of fine bubbles, definitely reduces to the surface. Does feature some lacing.

Smell - smells of corn, grass and light hops and malt, all notably fresh. For certain this will be an uncomplex taste.

Taste - a pretty non-chalant taste in terms of the fact that it's a balance of light malt sweetness and some even hops throughout. A bit of a quick finish with some dryness. Inoffensive but rather bland.

Mouthfeel - the smoothness of this beer is notable. It is marketed this way, but the smoothness also makes up for the mediocre taste in a lot of ways. I remember the "Smooth as Golden" commercials from years ago and it's true! A smooth, even beer it is (even if it lacks taste).

Drinkability - this is another baffling aspect of this beer. Why would anyone put away several of these? But the key is - you do! It's like being beside a shrimp ring or a bowl of chips. Each "last one" leads to "another one". Boring as it may be, several more of these will be going down tonight.

Why? Sometimes, with beers like this, I just don't know anymore.

I'm not surprised by the pale so called straw-yellow look, or by the fizz and the weak, thin foam it forms. What does surprise me is that any lace of any kind exists at all, but some tiny, sparsely deposited spotting is there nonetheless.
There's very little to the nose. There's corn husk and a slightly sulfuric (not skunky) vegetal note. There's also grass. What is that, hops? Hope yet lives.
A bit sweeter on the tongue, it does have some substance yet. It's just not much. Still corn, vegetation, grains, and a bit of fruit are better than some things offered by this type of beer.
Sometimes note having a terribly thin, watery body can be a detractor for this style. Odd, I know. But this beer has a thickness and a certain slickness that's worse than if it had a weaker body, though it is light regardless. It's sort of a clash on the palate, though a bite of crispness cuts through it some.
