Pours crystal-clear straw yellow with a thick white head. Quickly falls to just a hazy cap above the brew.

Original smells of sweet corn and a slight ethanol aroma. Other than the slightly peppery hop aroma, there isn't a whole lot going on here.

The tastes of this brew are primarily clean, sharp malt, as well as a peppery noble hop bitterness. There is still a strange sweetness.

Texture is thin, light-bodied.
