Decent summer day beer. Nothing special but better than the mass produced beer. Smooth taste and not to heavy on the tongue.

Pours a cloudy yellow with an inch and a half white head that dissipates quickly and leaves some spotty lacing. Smells and tastes of lemon, bready malts, grass, wheat and floral notes. Light bodied, well carbonated, watery mouth feel, minimal bitterness and a slightly dry finish. Overall a pretty poorly executed beer.

It's not the worst beer I've ever had, but it's decidedly forgettable. If you're digging through a party cooler and are in the mood for a light wheat beer, it's passable, but I'd skip it otherwise.

Poured from a 12 ounce can into a shaker pint.

Look - Cloudy yellow body with a strong but fast disappearing head.

Smell - Cloves, pepper, and a hint of banana makes this smell a bit like a weak cheap Belgian ale.

Taste - A musty metallic and not much else.

Feel - Thin body with a fittingly low carbonation. Any more fizz and it would probably mask any flavor in there.

Overall - A big goose egg of a beer. Basically a more expensive Natty Light.

L - Cloudy, straw-coloured, highly carbonated.
S - Pretty mild, a hint of citrus, that's all I get.
T - Not quite 'sharp' but quite hard/clean on the front. It's disappointing that nothing else seems to develop from there.
M - I am getting a lot of CO2 coming out in the mouth, in fact too much it's quite OTT.
O - This is a curious beer. It's from AB InBev (brewers of Budweiser and other 'factory brands'), who've packaged it up like it's from some quaint rural craft beer company. Perhaps it's their attempt to muscle in on the premium/$ craft scene. Unfortunately this beer struck me as entirely underwhelming (x-ref AB's Budweiser). The only time this beer might have a use is as a refresher on a very hot day, but it seems to offer absolutely nothing of interest or note, and hence there's no reason to buy it again.
