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

The body is a bright gold with no head floating on top. My big knock on how it looks is the carbonation is really low for the style. barely any bubbles at all.

The smell is exactly what you think it would be. Light malt (nothing really offensive, but nothing to make you hate it). Hint of corn and a touch of grains round out the smell.

it tastes more grainy than it smells, with a hint of corn and other grains coming in. It feels light and sweet, with a dash of earthy hops flashing in and out really quickly.

I actually like the beer, but its not exceptional. Its really balanced and really light, and highly drinkable.

Serving type: can

Got this from a friend of mine.

A: Yellow almost like piss in a glass - for the style I'm guessing this is ok. :) The head lingers a while.

S: Lemon zest, wheat, some malt, grains

T: Lemon zest again along with some strong malt presence.

M: Easy to drink - medium carbonation

D: Could drink this all night - low ABV - good flavor.

12 oz. bottle tried 16 Feb 2008. Gift from J&K, thanks!

Medium bright white head. Bright clear yellow color. Aroma is light, sweet and floral. Light malt, slight apple and pear flavor. Finishes with a faint bitterness. Light body.

Decent thirst quencher, easy to drink.
