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.
