look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3


A - Straw gold, a slight white quick dissipating head and sugar lace

S - Sugar, corn, a slight must, tons of grains a minerals, bready yeast, a bit of wheat and maybe a slightly baked malt?

T - Sweet, crispiness, fresh water, more sugar, corn, slight malt, some grass and that bready yeast

M - Medium minus body, medium plus acidity, balanced, not at all complex and a medium finish

D/O = Very drinkable, better than the bud and millers of the world. I like the sugar and the crisp freshness

Final thought - This brings me back to when I first met my wife. It was much better than, but harkens me back to that time. If there was a memory rating it would be a 5 for sure. Not a bad price 24oz for $2 and a sesionable 4.7% abv
