150 calories, 4.7% ABV. Found this a Kroger and bought it to try. This has an average smell but the taste is above average. Just as advertised it is a good beer for a hot summer day a notch above the standard. Sweet bread and grains. Wheat. Then some lemon zest and some faint grassy bitterness. Would buy again for an occasional seasonal 6-pack but unfortunately it would rank just below my top 10. Not disappointed.
