look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance
Large fluffy white head. Decent retention. Some lacing. Clear, light golden body. Active carbonation.

Smell
Mild. Sweet malt. Light floral hops.

Taste
Stale corn and malt. Not as sweet as expected. Dry and stale.

Mouthfeel
Body is somewhere between light and medium. Dry stale finish lingers. Strong carbonation.

Overall
Maybe this beer was not stored properly or was abused somehow? I was expecting more. This beer is pretty smooth. The appearance and aroma are inviting. But it just doesn't taste that good.
