Poured from bottle into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a light golden color with a medium white head . The head faded quite fast giving way to very little lacing.

Smell – The smell is light and is predominantly of some malty aromas mixed with an ever so light caramel aroma.

Taste – A lighter malt flavor with hints of corn mixed in. There is a lighter sweetness up front that seems to be lost toward the middle and the end. Overall rather one dimensional and bland in the taste profile.

Mouthfeel – A lighter body with a higher level of carbonation. The thinness of the body really allows it to coast right over the tongue. This coupled with the slightly higher then normal carbonation level give the brew very little time to permeate the tongue; which in this case is like a good thing.

Overall – Nothing to spectacular here. Doesn’t really have a huge taste and the nose and appearance leave something to be desired.
