2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours off the tap a clear golden, with a wispy head that leaves soapy lace. The nose is nondescript, light and corn/grain. Flavors are highly macro, lots of corn in there, but intermingles with some lemon and light grains. Corn and light hop finish. Medium bodied, it goes down ok for an opener, but not a top-tier offering.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light straw color, nondescript smell, some diacetyl on tasting. Would appeal to BMC drinkers I suppose but I hope they manage to get the taste cleaner with experience.
