look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Got this one at Party Source.

12 oz. bottle poured into a standard pint glass.

Pours a slightly hazy straw yellow with a one finger bright white head that dies down to a thin layer which lasts throughout. Tiny bits of spotting remain on the sides glass, but not much. Smell is light and fresh consisting of flowers, noble hops, and biscuits. Lemon and dirt in the aroma as well. For some reason the smell seems artificial. Taste starts off sweet with candy sugars, wheat, and light malts. Midway lemongrass and bread emerge leading to a bland, watered down aftertaste. Body is light and crisp with a tingly feel and fizzy carbonation. I could see myself grabbing this one during the summer over a Bud Light, but there are definitely better "refreshing" beers out there (ST Hop Sun). Eh, I probably won't seek this out again anytime soon.

2.95/5  rDev -10.6%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pale, straw-colored; thick foamy head of very fine bubbles; good head retention.

S: Faint wheat aroma.

T: Faintly of wheat, no other dominant flavors, no perceptible hoppiness.

M: Light and modestly carbonated.

O: Refreshing but unimpressive and fairly bland. Nothing too bold, no strong flavors that "jumped out" at the palate. Would not seek this out again.
