look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured into a Florida Beer Co. tapered glass. No freshness date.

A- Pours a clean dark golden color with a 1/2 inch off-white head that retains decently before making its way down to a thin ring around the edge of the glass and a light patch of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing.

S- Crisp aroma of light cereal grain and even lighter vegetal-type hops.

T- Very neutral flavor of husky malt and maybe even some adjuncts like corn or rice. Smooth, almost too drinkable. Yep, this is a pale lager all right. Barely any alcohol taste.

M- Just enough body to keep it from being too thin and watery. Medium carbonation.

O- I'll say I've definitely had worse beers, but it's still nothing special. Not bad for the style.

Poured into 9oz pils glass. Poured a clean, clear golden-honey color with just a thin cap of white head that had no retention or lacing.

The aroma was fairly neutral, just some soft grains and very gentle, light hops. The flavor was equally nondescript, just a basic "beeriness".

The body was smooth, clean, and even. Drinkability was very good, you could easily have a pile of empties before ya knew it. Overall, an OK little brew, worth trying if you see it. Not worth hunting down.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Produced a finger, and a half of white head. No lacing. The beer color is a translucent medium gold.

The aroma is of lager yeast, and biscuit.

The taste was the same, but with a lite sweetness. light mouth-feel, and medium carbonation.

Easy drinking. Not bad, but...just a notch above BMC, IMHO.
