I purchased a variety 12 pack from Applachian Brewing Co in Harrisburg PA and this was one of 4 different bottles.
Color is normal, average lager color. A shade or two darker than a macro beer. Not much head to speak of, but what little there is sticks around on the surface, which is nice to see.
Smell is grassy, with some faint malt underneath.
Taste is pretty much the same. Corn-like, grassy-like. Rather unappetizing and unappealing, unfortunately. Something just doesnt seem quite right, and I swear I can pick up on the alcohol in this, even though its only 4.5%
The carbonation is there, with a bit of the "stinging" mouthfeel that macros have. Overly watery, though.
Brewpubs that bottle & sell their own beer are kickass, and I totally want to be supportive, but this beer is just not very good. I cant say I'm disappointed, since I didnt expect much in the first place, but there is certainly room for improvement.
