It has a tinted gold look to it, which is nice for a light beer.

The aroma is vague and distant. Corn, cereal grain, honey.

It has a sweet maltiness to it with a comfortable light flavor. Overall though, I can't taste much at all from this. Prickly hops try to come around in the finish.

It's clean with good carbonation but i'm going to have to take the calories over this. Bland.

Poured bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: A clear, dark gold color with a very small head.

Smell: A slight malt aroma, but not much.

Taste: Had a modestly strong flavor for the style with a decent bitter kick. On the whole, however, fairly bland.

Mouthfeel: Pretty thin and watery.

Drinkability: Not too impressed. I wouldn't get this again.
