3/5 rDev -10.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.25
Nothing to run home about in this beer. Was told it was bitter but was disappointed in said bitterness.
Look is clear, average, watery.
Smells of a typical cheap lager.
Taste is full for a moment of wheat and barley but quickly goes to a dull taste.
Overall it is barely a step up of a regular macro lager in my opinion.
Serving type: on-tap

poured from a bottle into a pint glass...
a: two finger bright white head. quickly dissipates. crystal clear light straw color.
s: bready, light toast. fresh pale malt. spicy yeast character. very light hop notes.
t: light caramel, pale malt. grainy. light earthy hop taste. short spiciness.
m: medium carbonation. more body from a lighter style than i was expecting. hop bitterness lightly lingers.
o: not an overly exciting beer. i wouldn't turn it down but i certainly wouldn't seek this one out.

Got this one in a mixed sixer for a Christmas gift
A- hazy gold yellow with moderate carbonation and little to no lacing. Appears pretty mediocre.
S- It honestly smells like an adjunct lager. Has a metallic smell with traces of corn and a hint of orange zest. Nothing worth remembering
T/M- Has a sweet light malt body with a hint of orange zest barely coming through. A corn like adjunct flavor is present. The mouthfeel is light in the body ending with a sweet, dry ending.
Overall- This is my second time having this beer. The first time I had it on tap it was awful, this time I found it much more enjoyable. Don't get me wrong it is a very mediocre beer that does little to make me want to seek it out. However, it is surprisingly drinkable and would make a descent summer/lawnmower beer.

Straight up golden yellow with a big old white foamy head that fizzes away pretty quick. nose is pretty malty but the same malt character gives way to some bitterness. I'm a little surprised that this beer has as much body as it does. Fairly decent finish for a good yet utilitarian beer.
