Pale golden, with an overpowering tower of white foam. No lace here.

Nose is corny, yeasty, and sweet.

Taste is likewise sweet, even almost syrupy. I get practically all malts and no hops presence. Not nearly as well-balanced as I'd hoped, especially for such a legendary beer. Finishes watery and uncomplex. Wouldn't get again.

Pours a very pale yellow color with a big white fizzy head that leaves very quickly. Aroma is with a grainy malt quality and a touch of hops. Taste is has a bland malt taste, very thin, with soft fullness from carbonation and a not so pleasing finish on your palate. As the beer warmed up, the taste got worse.

A - Light bright yellow body, fairly effervescent, thin fizzy head no matter how aggressive the pour, gone in a few seconds, no lace.

S - Some light corn and sparkling apple juice.

T - The faintest of green apple tartness, traces of corn. No detectable hops.

M - Highly carbonated, watery thin.

O - Macro-garbage but not the most foul on the market. Drinkable ice cold on a stinking hot day.

How can you be American and insult this golden delight???- your snobby beer taste has lead you in the direction of spoiled con·nois·seur... Do yourselves a favor and try to open up and make famous your own establishment instead of ripping on others miracle creation...
