This brew poured with a half finger of pure white head that actually took awhile to dissipated. The body was a clear, straw yellow with moderate visible carbonation. The nose was very mild with a hint of grain and nothing else. The taste was…well…pretty terrible. I got a hint of grass, grain and metal. The body was thicker than expected with moderate carbonation. The metal lasted until the finish that was luckily pretty quick. Nothing about this beer was very pleasant. I would definitely avoid this one.

Open bar selection at a wedding..Clean straw yellow, fizzy, little head, no lacing.

Smell is grain, grass, some straw.

More grain on the palate, no development to speak of...just bland

Thin..got rid of this one quickly

Glad this was free at a wedding...forgettable

I'm reviewing this as what it is, a "light" beer.
Kind of thin, kind of boring, slight nice bitterness.
Not bad for a light and something I drink regularly since I
can't drink homebrew all night. Definitely better than bud has to
offer. If you want a beer to drink but don't want the carbs, give it a try.
