I have had plenty of these, even in official glasses so I might as well review it.
Pours a grey/yellow with cloudy consistency. Some retention on the 1 finger head but mostly medium sized bubbles that have some staying power, but not completely. There is virtually no lacing on this beer.
Smell is a dominant fake lemon almost bottled lemon juice, with some orange citrus. Faint weak bread characteristics masked by the fruit. Somewhat actually sour but for the most part nothing offensive.
Taste is of a spring time lemonade, and orange juice quality, with some chewey texture but mostly wet mouthfeel. A little bite to the finish which is kind of surprising.
I could have another but I'd probably want something better. This is a good introductory beer for this style I think.
