look: 2.75 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
Poured a clear yellow with a thin, foamy head. It looks like a bad AAL. Scents of lager yeast and maize, mostly maize. Maybe a bit of malt in there, but I couldn't really make it out. This carried over into the taste. Some yeast, a lot of maize, a hint of bready malt, but not much, a hint of hops and a hit of alcohol on the finish. Why is that in a lager? Even in an AAL? It's standard, but that alcohol hit is an unwelcome change from the overall mediocrity of the rest of the taste. Mouthfeel was light bodied, with high carbonation. Standard for the style, the same as any other. Overall it's a standard AAL, held back from mediocrity and thrust into somewhat bad territory by a weird alcohol presence and a low hop character. It's not worth going back to for sure.

Tallboy can reviewed over the weekend. I am pretty surprised it took this long to get this review in but kind of happy I waited. Full notes taken while consuming.
A- Poured from the tallboy can to two pint glasses, finally getting to the champagne of beers. Crystal clear, really!, uber pale golden body with a foamy white cap. Head rises to about two fingers and has poor to fair retention. Foamy ring leaves spotty lace and some patches.
S- Really, really not much going on here. Slight pale lager yeast and malts but pretty much have to search for it, beyond clean (in all aspects). Maybe a hint of fruit.
T- Opens up and some more going on here but really not a ton. Rice and pale cracked grains come to mind with a tiny hint of lager ester fruits. Bread and popcorn is about how I sum it up.
MF- Lightest possible body with a high carbonation attacking the taste buds. Texture is about the opposite of creamy, watery and fizzy.
I don't really know anymore. Somehow this doesn't taste like complete shit to me. I was more bothered by this when I was about 20-21 but now I find lager yeast hints. Leaves you wishing for more and lacks anything all that enjoyable.

This is the only AAL that I can say I enjoy. While there is nothing special about it, there is also nothing offensive. For me, the mouthfeel is smooth and almost creamy, which is what makes this one for me. It's also cheaper than its bud, coors, miller counterparts.
