Used to be 6.4%, but it seems dumbed down now to 5.0%, and I hope it wouldn't taste so thick and sugary as before?
The BB date is 13 Jul. 06.

Very pale straw hued, with a short-lived white beer head and a moderately carbonated body. The nose is pretty modest, if anything, with some malts and corn-like grainy smell, very faint trace of lemony hops. The palate is the same, sharply gassy upfront, then thin-bodied flavour of some sweet grains and sugars, but turning more and more watery as it goes... almost like a lemonade without the lemony edge!!! Finished with less sugary touch than its previous version (6.4%) but still a bit sticky on the palate. Overall, it has all the cheap and overly light texture I haven't confronted for a long long time, and even its predecessor tastes better than this one. One of the worst beers I've had, and not as a result of mis-handling or any "excusable" factors I believe. Not recommended at all.

The pour clear light golden amber color, the head adequate as is the lace, both bright white in color, malt nose, somewhat crisp and fresh. Start malt, the top cadaverous, finish bitingly acidic, the hops pertinent to the style, dry lingering aftertaste, beats "Water", but just barely.
