Fizzy head with modest retention and decent lacing. As clear as one could ask, for the style. Pours a golden yellow into pilsner glass. Smell denotes the onset of undesirable qualities, but not really present in the taste. The beer I had was probably a couple months past the best before date, but has not gone bad yet. Similar flavor and feel to a Dos Equis Lager Especial, but less sweet and less crisp. Slightly watery, not as carbonated as similar lagers, but then, as I said, it's past BBD.

It pours a clear pale yellow with a quickly dissipating fizzy white head. The aroma is very, very light with a hint of grain malts and a touch of an adjunct. This brew has such a super light taste that it is almost non-existent. There is however a light graininess and a very mild bitterness at the end. I really can’t see drinking more of this, might as well drink water...

Pours a clear yellow, left no head, leaves no lacing on the glass.

Smelled almost like nothing, very subtle scent.

Taste is reminiscent of Kirin Ichiban, light toasted malts, almost nothing else.

Thin and watery, very high carbonation, pretty crisp and refreshing.

Middle of the road, light beer appealing to as many people as possible.

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

Poured from 12 oz bottle into pint glass.

Appearance: pours a 2" sudsy white head that drops moderately with no lacing. Color is clear pale straw with mild streaming carbonation.

Aroma: lightly toasted barley, a bit of yeasty bread dough.

Mouthfeel: light and thin, slightly slick, with a somewhat dry finish.

Flavor: cracker and biscuit, some barley malt sweetness, a very mild hop presence.

Overall: light and easy drinking. Pleasant and should pair well with many foods.

Was part of the reunion 6 pack. It's just a macro style lager, but a bit better than your average bud, miller, or whatever, but nothing special. I wouldn't ever seek it out on it's own.

2/7 (Home) Bottle - Decent smell and taste, though very bland and average beer.

Thin, astringent a touch and had alcohol heat in the finish. A bit lacking in malty flavor and finished carelessly with a hops bitter.

2.54/5  rDev -16.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Look: very pale yellow, aggressive pour formed massive head that disappeared quicky. No lacing.

Aroma: light corn, no malt or hops.

Taste: not much to speak of...faint malt, dominate corn, very little hops with almost no bitterness.

Feel: gone immediately
