Served in a can at This Little Piggy Likes Roastbeef in New York, NY

A: Pours a deep golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has about a finger tall fizzy white head that reduces to small patch of very thin film near the center of the beer.

S: The beer has aromas of bready malts with just a hint of corn adjunct along with some light notes of floral and grassy hops.

T: Light to moderate flavors of bready malts with some notes of corn as well. There is a light bitterness which does not linger contributed from the hops and just a touch of citrus rind.

M: Just slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Super easy to drink and a definite session beer. Refreshing and pairs very well with lots of meaty sandwiches - probably would be great for a cook out.

A friend of mine gave me a 6-pack of this the other day. Poured the final bottle into a pint glass for review. Pours a pale, translucent gold with fine lace on top. No head or lace left behind on the glass. Nose is of cheap grains and freshly-cut honeycrisp apples. The mouth is crisp and thin. Very light, not surprisingly. Very sweet beer. Light apple juice, mild corn, sweet finish. This drinks like flavored water, and it is refreshing. I'll give it that. Decent enough to wash down some wings or something, but nothing I'd stock the fridge with on a regular basis.

My favorite part of this beer was the pictorial riddles under each cap. Nice little touch to an otherwise boring beer.
