This is a great party beer, goes down like water, has a decent alcohol content, and doesn't taste too bad either. Has a light straw color with a lot of carbonation and is relatively smooth.

Poured from a 12oz (bottled 26Jun15) into a pilsner glass.
LOOK: Pours with two finger's worth of white foam that dissipates into a quarter finger's worth after 2 minutes and 15 seconds. Once the foam head settles, there is still a plethora of medium-sized bubbles that are ascending towards the top. Straw yellow in color. Lacing is thin and subtle.
SMELL: Mild aromas of sugar water and neutral scented hand soap clash with subtle aromas of car exhaust, spicy hops, and grass along with hints of corn.
TASTE: Initial taste is of mild sugar water flavors that are immediately followed by subtle corn flavors. Subtle flavors of spicy hops, floral hops, and hints of bready malts eneter lastly as both initial flavors persist in strength.
FEEL: Light-bodied and moderately carbonated. Goes down somewhat smooth. Finishes with a subtle dryness that makes you want to drink more until you realize you're drinking garbage and then proceed to grab yourself a nice Dortmunder or Kellerbier.
