12oz can served in a standard pint glass. not a beer i typically review, but i have a couple leftovers from a party so... why not? it's there.

pours a clear, pale yellow with a big 2 finger foamy head; not much in the way of retention or lacing.

nose is slightly sweet with a grainy-like presence. subdued notes of skunk roadkill. flavor follows the aroma, neither terrible nor particularly good... some sweet maltiness; grainy. very muted floral hoppy notes. decidedly meh. crisp, thin-bodied mouthfeel with average carbonation. pretty drinkable in that it's non-offensive and goes down easily, though with so many more appealing option to be had, the question is, why would you bother?
