O: No thanks – I’ll pass next time.

A: Pours a crystal clear light yellow in color with some moderate amounts of active visible carbonation and hints of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy bright white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of very thin film and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of corn adjuncts over cereal grain malts.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of cereal malts with lightly sweet corn adjuncts. Absolutely no hint of hops and the flavor fades pretty quickly. Minimal amounts of bitterness.

M: Light bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Thin/watery.

O: There is a minimal amount of flavor to this beer but it is not offensive - feels like it is a good beer for hydrating on a hot summer afternoon while working in the yard.

Served in a Lagunitas mason jar.

"The beer you reach for when Iron City is just to heavy and calorie-laden..." This stuff pours a clear straw topped by a finger of relatively short-lived lightly off-white foam. The nose comprises corn, funky wheat, and hard water. The taste brings in more of the same, with the hard water and funky wheat really combining for some "fun" on the tongue. The body is pretty light, with a light moderate carbonation and a watery feel. Overall, a meek, character-less beer, prolly exactly what they were aiming for. Some people...
