3.4/5 rDev +24.1%
Appearance: crystal gold body with maybe a one finger white head that disappeared before my eyes; a spot or dot of lacing here or there.
Aroma: oh hum, another lager bouquet; in the bottle a little Euro must smell or green bottle smell; in the glass – sweet grains and grassy hop
Flavors: grainy, light herbal hop and dry grass, multi grain bread, for a Lager pretty good
Mouthfeel: crisp, refreshing, light flavors, light to moderate body, moderate carbonation,
To the Point: once again a typical Lager; average at best as far as Lagers go; refreshing and pleasing on a hot summer day. Hard to justify the $12.99 a six pack. The price is in play for the okay rating.

A - pours with a small head of white foam that settles quickly and leaves decent lace. The body is clear with a deep golden color,
S - a bready malt aroma with some light, herbal hops.
T - Grainy malt up front with some herbal hops. A touch of corn in the middle with a dry finish and lingering, moderate bitterness.
M - Medium body, moderate carbonation, and a dry finish.
D - Not bad, it has a promising aroma, but the flavor is a very average e.uro lager.

A: The beer is clear dark yellow in color (resembling apple juice) and has no visible carbonation. It poured with a thin off white head that died down but never completely faded away.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of corn and apple juice in the nose.
T: Like the smell, the taste is sweet with hints of bitterness. There are flavors of corn and notes of apple juice.
M: It feels light-bodied and a bit watery on the palate with a low to moderate amount of carbonation.
O: The sweetness and apple juice flavors can make this a bit difficult to drink for some people. Nevertheless, it has a good amount of aroma and flavors compared to other adjunct lagers.

2.93/5 rDev +6.9%
A: Pours a crystal clear medium golden yellow (apple juice) in color with some very light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has a quarter finger tall bright white head that quickly reduces to a thick ring at the edges of the glass and a medium sized patch of thick large bubbles. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.
S: This beer has a very sweet smell - grain/corn adjunct malts along with quite a bit of apple juice.
T: Like the smell, the taste of this beer is quite sweet - there is a strong presence of grainy/corn adjunct malts and apple juice. There is a very light amount of grassy hop flavors. Very little bitterness.
M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation.
O: This beer is pretty easy to drink, though perhaps a little sweet to be sessionable. Enjoyable but not one I will likely seek out again.
