Poured a 355 mL bottle into a JFF is my BFF novelty pint glass.
A: Poured a fairly thin head which mostly dissipated quickly. The colors are interesting, it comes off as a yellow with a slight lime. Minor carbonation rises from the bottom.
S: Some minor citrus smells arise. Minor hops arise, but it's mostly the citrus that takes up this smell.
T: A citrus zest definitely hits the palate on first take. That same zest stays on the palate which make up this drinks slight aftertaste. Some minor malty bread flavors come in throughout the take in, but nothing spectacular.
M: The mouthful is definitely nice for the style. The body is light with a fairly decent amount of carbonation.
O: This is not a complex beer, but it is nicely balanced and a great drink for those not desiring something complex. This is more zest rather than hops or malts.
This is a summer drink and will help help during a long day outside.

Appearance- Looks like an adjunct lager. Super carbonated, golden, and slight head produced.
Smell- Not much here besides some grainy notes and slight citrus.
Taste- Grainy malts hit the tongue at first with lots of carbonation. Following that some citrus and bread malt lingers on the tongue.
Feel- Very carbonated. Clean and crisp, almost lager like.
Overall- This essentially seems like a tastier adjunct beer option, and it serves its purpose well. I would definitely get this as a substitute for bmc when out drinking. However, day to day this isn't worth putting in the rotation, especially with better beers within the style available.
