330ml bottle, a straggler from the ski chalet fridge last week.
This beer pours a thoroughly clear, light golden colour, with two fingers of puffy, fizzy, and momentarily bubbly dirty white head, which sinks away like someone let the air out of its tires, leaving a bit of random streaky lace around the glass.
It smells a heck of a lot like sushi, that is, leftover sushi with that mealy, congealed rice odor, and a kind of vegetal, crisp snow peas character - wait, that sounds way too good for this - oh, there it is, some wet cardboard and faint fusel come to save the day! The taste is very light, sweet white rice in liquid form, soggy saltines, a pithy rotten fruit essence, and weak straw/floral esters that may or may not be construed as hops.
The carbonation is actually quite strong, but mostly in a frothy, airy sort of manner, the body quite thin in its weighting, and smooth like hard water. It finishes with a mealy (diluted rice and corn) sweetness, and some lingering muddled vegetal acridity.
North of 49, they actually have to label the ABV on even this kind of stuff, and it's 3.7%, as if it really matters. Anyways, not overly offensive, plain, and not good for much, unless you're hemorrhaging fluids on vacation somewhere, and still want to appear to be drinking.

A- Settles in with a a very pale, golden body with crystal clear transparency. Head starts out a foamy white, but dissappears very quickly to leave a ring of white bubbles around the edges.
S- Wet corn, hints of toasted grains, not much more than that.
T- Sweet corn and grain flavors, watery bread, not all that offensive, but hardly any flavor to speak of.
M- Very thin and watery, carbonation is medium.
O- This is towards the bottom of the list for a reason, it is really not very good. That being said, it is light and drinkable.
