look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Appearance: pours a small 3/4" head that recedes at a moderate rate. Faint lacing. Clear golden color with moderate carbonation.
Aroma: smell of lightly toasted malt, I don’t really detect any hop aroma
Mouthfeel: very dry and crisp, somewhat watery with fairly significant carbonation.
Flavor: sweet malts, nothing challenging, maybe a hint of hops (slightly ’musky flavor)
Overall: Very easy drinking, crisp, refreshing.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

Code of K3013G 1342FL on the bottom of the can.

It pours a straw gold with a head of foam that fills half of my glass. That's a heck of a lot of foam but there's not much sticky lacing.

It smells grainy and earthy; not a big sweet presence nor a hoppy one.

The taste is grainy and does bring a lot of sweet and earthy notes. I'm not digging the sweet at all, the grain I can deal with. The finish is slightly bitter but also not in a good way.

Thin bodied, thank goodness, and gets watery in the finish.

This is not close to being an enjoyable beer.
