worldbeertaste (1669) - - OCT 20, 2012
Clear pale thin light goldish orange with a white soapy thin lacy lasting head. Smells stale, with light hops, citrus, flowery and malt. Medium to full thin body. Tastes of sweet grape, light chewy malt, hay with a soft hop bitter finish. More complex than it seems. With some melon and a bit of corn. Decent and interesting.
