look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

On-tap into a pilsner glass.

Piss-yellow, water + food coloring look to it. Smell is very light - corn, touch of malt, yeast. Dry in the nose as well as the taste. Very light malts along with corn and rice is all I can detect. Mouthfeel is light yet cloying. Not especially great.

Overall, what did you expect? It's not quality but better than nothing at the end of the night. It gets a pass somehow.
