look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

It has a tinted gold look to it, which is nice for a light beer.

The aroma is vague and distant. Corn, cereal grain, honey.

It has a sweet maltiness to it with a comfortable light flavor. Overall though, I can't taste much at all from this. Prickly hops try to come around in the finish.

It's clean with good carbonation but i'm going to have to take the calories over this. Bland.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Poured bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: A clear, dark gold color with a very small head.

Smell: A slight malt aroma, but not much.

Taste: Had a modestly strong flavor for the style with a decent bitter kick. On the whole, however, fairly bland.

Mouthfeel: Pretty thin and watery.

Drinkability: Not too impressed. I wouldn't get this again.

2.55/5  rDev -15.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass. No dating info but I know it's fresh. It was a light bronze color - clear. Carb fountain in center but no lacing. It had an average sized fizzy white head that quickly settled into a barely there collar.

The aroma was very faint. Malty and grassy and bland. Taste was also barely there and bland. Starts out weak and never picks up. I'd rather have a Miller Lite over this one.

Overall, weak in aroma and flavor. Rather have a BMC. Don't recommend. One and done.
