Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

The beer is a light, crystal clear straw yellow. A fizzy, super-airy white head sits on top for a few seconds, then dissipates to nothing -- but a ring of bubbles around the edges of the glass. No lacing. The beer smells slightly sweet and also with a strange corn-husk sourness, must be the adjuncts. The beer tastes sweet up front, then is followed with the sour/cabbage/corn/adjunct finish. The mouthfeel is light bodied and goes down like water.

Overall, my least favorite AAL. There's something particular about the finish that tastes sour and unappealing.
