From a can poured into a tulip glass. (Why the heck not?)

A: Light gold, straw color. An agressive pour yields a two finger soapy head. Quickly dissipates to thin ring around the glass. No lacing and very little carbonation rising up the glass.

S: Sweet and ricey. Not much else

T: Like the nose. Sweet and ricey. Adjuncts dominate. Nothing in the way of hop flavors. Finishes with a faint skunkiness, but not so much that it is appalling.
Taste seems to get worse as it warms, musty drink this one cold (i.e. fast or in a good koozie.)

M: Thin and watery. Carbonation is light. High, high drinkability.

O: Not a fan of the style, but for the style it is good and is one of my preferred American Adjuncts. A great fishing and summer-time beer. Cannot beat the price; much better then many other beers of the style that cost much more. Of course I will return to this one. Again, for the style it's a good showing.
