Yellow with some wheat haze to it. Lemon aroma and not much else.

Once again, lemon dominates, enough water to cut it from being brutal or anything. Although that might be more welcome. I just want to feel something!!!

Perhaps they actually used lemon rind in this one. One trick pony, and not even good at that one thing. Pass.
