(Poured into a small tasting glass)

Thick, white, frothy head. Lots of bubbles. Yellow-golden. Clear. Spotty lacing.

Aroma: citrusy/fruity??? Sweet, indistinguishable grain. A little breadiness.

The flavor has some of that typical gummy ice beer flavor. Overall, the flavor is tepidly light, like the regular Old Milwaukee.

The mouthfeel is too thinly carbonated for the style.

The finish is crisp, refreshing, light and watery, and fairly dry.

Yellow pour with almost no head. Aroma was massively like fusel alcohol. Didn't come off like the beer ingredients. No malt, hop smells.

Taste was still harsh. There's some sweetness like corn in it. Drink this one cold. Lots of carbonation all over it. Gets a lot more bitter as it warms, and it isn't a hop flavor bitter.
