Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.
This is probably the last thing on their vast tap menu that a beer geek would pick, and I am guilty myself (very close to that in my case, although the pumpkin beer and chili pepper beer are easily dead last). But it’s actually a pretty tasty rendition...nice floral hop nose, clean, and balanced. One of the more enjoyable beers from MBC, quite honestly.
