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.
