A thin, estery nose reminded one taster of white wine. The palate is lightly grainy, but doesn’t have much more flavor. There’s a tiny hint of bitterness, which doesn’t really go anywhere, and a total lack of flavor hops. The carbonation leads to an impression of beer-flavored mineral water, and at least one taster was convinced that this was light beer. We’d avoid it.
