A: Poured into a pilsner glass. Vigorous carbonation. One and a half finger rappidly dissipating bleached head. Lacing is pretty minimal. Beer itself is a pale, transparent straw yellow.

S: Husked grain, little bit of corn and a strangely metallic skunk. Not off putting, but not pleasent.

T: Straight shot of thinly masked adjunct. Lacks the overbearing cornflake flavor. Clean, metallic, and then...nothing. No aftertaste, nada.

M: Thin, seltzer like. Effervescent. Bubbles aren't to the point where they are prickly, but they're obviously manufactured.

O: Eh. That being said, I will squeeze a lime in here on a hot summer day at the beach. It is what it is.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Clear amber color. Thin white head with no lacing.

Smell: Very mild smells of corn, malts, and grassy.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste grassy with some malts, sugars, and corn.

Overall: Similar in taste to Budweiser, ok brew.
