3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Light aroma of malt and citrus. Pale gold color with frothy white head. Very light taste - citrus like, very thin, a bit of wet paper, a very little hop at the end. Very drinkable, but so is water. Having said that, it is head and shoulders above Budweiser. And eventually some bitter hop arises to be noticed. Maybe even a hint of apricot. There are some sleeper aspects.
