Into a pilsener (also noted in pint glass, nothing changed):

A: totally clear yellow body with a small white head that doesn't last even ten seconds

S: wheaty grassiness with the slightest hint of malt

T: wheaty grassy hops, slightly bready, slightly sweet yet bitter

M: light, very sessionable, smooth nothing harsh on the tongue, grassy aftertaste

O: decent for the style, easy to drink. I would have it again.

look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 2.5

appearance; clear yellow with the slightest bit of haze. White head that doesn't last long but the film leaves messy lacing.

smell; not too much going on, some weak grassy hops are perceived with only the slightest hint of malt.

taste; very bland and grassy hops with some slight bready malt flavors in the finish. Fitting to the style just weak and uninspired in comparison to other selections.

mouthfeel; pretty nice on the palate, comforting and crisp with a refreshing finish. A very light and easy drinking beer.

overall; not really anything to go crazy over, just a solid, easy to drink beer that has it's time and place.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a hazy golden color with a centimeter thick head that dissipates quickly. Has decent lacing.

Smell - Slightly sweet, skunky, bread, and a hint of citrus.

Taste - Slight bit of citrus and skunky.. Bread notes and mild bitterness. Seems a little watered down.

Mouthfeel - Has a little zing to it. Medium bodied with mild carbonation.

Overall - Not a bad beer, as long as you don't mind the skunk.
