look: 5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

This beer has become my "go to" beer when I am getting a easy-drinking macro lager. I think I can do better, but I just haven't settled on another one yet.

I gave this a "5" for appearance because I just like the look of this beer. The color says crisp refreshment and the packaging has an appealing retro look to it.

It's refreshing all right. The downside is there are some off-flavors that I don't like in my beer. They don't pre-dominate like in some macros, but they are there just enough to make this a weak substitute for a Victory Pils or any number of fine craft lagers one can find easily enough.

2.78/5  rDev +3.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

16oz can poured into a snifter. Jun 09 14 on the bottom of the can.

A: Pours a clear light golden yellow with a slightly thin white head on top. Average amount of visible carbonation.

S: Has the aroma you would anticipate from one of the mass produced adjunct lagers. A corn like sweetness with a hint of metallic booze.

T: Mild dose of malt sweetness harnessed by a bready backbone. No offensive flavors going on here. Well balanced nothingness.

M: Light to medium body with a healthy dose of carbonation. Crisp and mostly clean finish.

Overall it is what it is. Run of the mill american adjunct lager with minimal redeeming qualities. Not sure I could pick this out in a lineup.

3.2/5  rDev +19.4%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured into a fluted pilsner glass.

Look: Crystal clear light straw color. A huge rocky, soapy white head hardly recedes at all. Lots of foamy white lacing sticks to the glass.

Aroma: Very grainy, some grassiness, and a little bit of sweet corn in the end.

Taste: Cereal grains and sweet corn adjuncts hold up the body. A little bit of alcohol in the semi-dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, dry.

Overall: Maybe it was because I was in a good mood, but this beer surprised me. It was clean tasting without any odd metallic elements like a lot of cheap beers.

3.25/5  rDev +21.3%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: golden color with a medium sized head. Lots of bubbles.

Smell: small hint of corn, plus hop smells.

Taste: Very crisp and light beer, some grains, not a lot of hops taste. Sort of a sweet taste.

Overall: Pretty average beer, from a macrobrewer and for the price I will say its an OK beer and one I do drink in college because of it.
