Found this cheap at Meijer $6 / 6 pack. Saw the great reviews here, but I was disappointed. Like my better half said, "Well, it tastes like beer."

There was nothing special about this ale. I'm new at this, but it was very lager-ish to me.

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Appearance: Amber and transparent, pours with very little head.

Smell: Nothing of note with respect to smell. A bit of malt coming through I suppose.

Taste: Interesting flavor. Relatively light and smooth, not particularly bitter or malty. Maybe some caramel but not really a sweet beer.

Mouthfeel: Light and smooth, doesn't elicit any particular reaction. Very easy to drink.

Overall: I don't have any particularly strong feelings here. The beer is not noticeably malty or hoppy, doesn't have any particularly strong flavor. A good beer but could not find anything to really like or dislike about it so I guess I'm neutral. Might buy this again, might not.
