Bottle date: unk

A: pours a yellow ale with no head and near excellent clarity. No lace. Meh.

S: Smells mostly of butter and corn. Not much else. No hops. Some sweet malt I guess, but I feel like I'm stretching it.

T: Tastes like the smell I recall from my grandpa when he drank upwards of two cases of ranier daily. Not good. A sweet, chemical flavor with some slight grassy tones.

M: Thin and slightly carbonated. Needs much more carbonation.

O: Nope.

Poured from 22oz bomber into a pint glass.

Appearance: slightly hazy light straw color with a very thin layer of white foam. Nothing special here.

Smell: light, grainy malt aroma without much story to tell. Not my favorite, but not particularly bad.

Taste: quite grainy and somewhat corny flavor. Not much in the way of hops here, either. The more I drink, the more prominent the cooked corn becomes -- kind of like a can of Green Giant creamed corn. Not at all what I like.

Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a decent carbonation. Not too bad.

Overall: the more I drink of this, the less drinkable it becomes. I absolutely hate to drain-pour a beer, but this might get there. It's just too darn corny.
