2.01/5 rDev -19.3%
A completely clear bright gold color, this brew throws up a layer of foam that, to its credit, does stick around for a moment before falling to just what can cling to the edges. A few little spots of lacing can be seen here and there.
The aroma isn't offensive; there's not much at all going on. I get grains, a little syrupy sweetness, and a lightly mineral note.
The flavor is primarily grainy and sweet with a dusting of pale malts. Take away the sweetness and it's almost palatable.
The caronation holds up and the very light body actually keeps something going, while crispness keeps it from going flat. For the style, the feel is average.

1.6/5 rDev -35.7%
330ml bottle served in a Pilsen glass.
A: Pours a very clear gold yellow color forming a medium, white and very bubbled head. Low retention and some thin lacings left in the glass
S: Artificial plastic and adjunct malts in the nose. Terrible. Sweet grains and some flowery hops in the end
T: Sweet grains. Again, quite artificial in the mouth, tastes like plastic. Adjunct malts, mainly. Light bitterness
M: Light body. High carbonation. Adjunct malts aftertaste
O: Low drinkability. Disgusting

2.1/5 rDev -15.7%
Pours a clear and golden color. The head, about two fingers of it, is white with a medium retention.
The aroma is mild - some malts and grains can be picked up.
The taste naturally follows the nose. Sweet beginning of the malts, followed by a light bitterness, slightly watery, in the body, ending with no real finis. Lacks a bit of bitterness.
