look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: Crystal clear straw yellow, plenty of loose carbonation. Fine white head that actually has decent retention, although only as a veneer.

S: Faint. Light grain, lemon, even mango, although that may be wishful smelling.

T: Same as the nose. Luckily there was no detectable corn flavor that was mentioned on the bottle. There are no flaws, but nothing compelling either.

M: Light, lively body. Easy gulper.

O: Easy drinking, a good beer to drink and not think about. Right up there with Hamm's (I mean that as a compliment), but without any of the flaws.
