3.03/5  rDev -8.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Pours when pulled out the family reunion mixed 6. Cool idea. Pours yellow and gold, looks like a lager, and it has about 1/2" of white head on it, small bubbles, not really something that leaves any lace.

Aroma was pretty neutral. A little bit of sweet malt.

Taste yields a marginal lager yeast profile. Undercarbonated for style. Is kinda plain, the hops don't stand out, but there's enough there to get the ibus into the mid 30s I would guess. The malt sweetness isn't heavy. Nothing is heavy about this beer.

This isn't a beer that is probably on anyones wants list. Its fairly non descript. I have no idea what makes this a special reserve beer, as it seems pedestrian. But the good news is no off flavors of any kind. There probably isn't anything too challenging for your average non beer geek person. I dunno, maybe someone's mom would find this to still be too bitter, as it isn't as watery and mild as a bud light.

3.55/5  rDev +6.9%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Pours a medium golden color with huge frothy white head that slowly recedes. Aromas of earthy mineral water atop grainy sweet bread. Light earthy hop aroma. The flavor is a bit malty sweet with a light earthy fruitiness. Medium to full body with a moderate level of carbonation. So far I liked this on the most from the mixed 12 pack I got. Its a decent lager, not horribly complex or continental inspired, but drinkable just the same.
