Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance- Pours a light straw color with a one finger fizzy white head. The head fades very fast to leave very little lacing.

Smell – The aroma is a mix of corn, some breadiness and some cardboard aromas.

Taste –The taste actually follows the nose quite well. It starts out with a very light sweet corn flavor and some malt. The flavor sweetens out more toward the middle to the end all the while a cardboard taste gets more potent. In the end a rather bland papery and bready flavor are left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is average to below average in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that is slightly above average. A crisper feel appropriate for the style, but nothing too exceptional.

Overall – Ah nothing you really want to go to even for a cheap session.
