This beer when poured into a pint glass, has a yellowish body with a thin white head. The smell is grainy with not fruit smell. The taste is a little better, some wheat taste with a little bit of citrus. The mouth feel is ok and overall, is a average beer, good for the summer.

Split a bottle in Chicago over New Year's Eve.

The pour is totally univiting - cloudy lemonade, cold Campbell's chicken soup, ramen runoff, take your pick. The sniffer offers a little bit of bakery, pleasantly grainy, but not real powerful. Ditto on the taste, not much in the way of spices, or of citrus. Not bad, just, well, there. Mouthfeel was thin, healthy amount of carbonation.

Mild beer that won't knock anybody's socks off. Good summer beer, but overall I wasn't terribly impressed by it. Gets a C: drinkable, passable, that's about it.
