We pour a brew of light golden yellow. It holds a brief half finger head of crisp white bubbles, leaving a ring around the edges. Lacing becoming spidery as the liquid levels decrease. Carbonation appears moderate, and translucency is utterly complete. The nose sings with corn and sickly metallic adjuncts. There is grassiness of more fresh malt action, with sweeps of white sugar sweetness coming and going. As we sip, the mouth is met with skunky, adjuncty, souring grain. This puckers the mouth, with metallics and faint synthetic lemon. The latter affords sweetness, but this is transient, as watery malts and hard water come through, blunted all flavor through the middle. Barley and grass predominate, giving room for nothing else through the finish either. Flour adds to this, with more metallics and mineral water bite. The aftertaste breathes of more of the same, with tin, generic grass, and water. There are thin stripes of alcohol throughout. The body is light and the carbonation is medium to high. The feel is thin and watery, with little slurp or cream. Each sip is paper thin, with little coating or drying. Quite hydrating, in fact. The abv is appropriate, and the beer drinks appropriately for the style.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was how easily it goes down. If you’re looking for a light brew with mild flavoring, this is something you might be interested in. The beer lacks any real flavoring, but comes forth with basic malts and a light airy background. It is not as offensive as many others like it, but is also not something I would regularly stock in my fridge.
