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.

A easy drinking lager. A dime a dozen but still enjoyable

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

12oz bottle, no apparent freshness date. Thanks to my brother-in-law and father-in-law for the "Family Reunion" mixed 12 pack for my birthday.
A - clear and golden, thin white head dissipates quickly
S - faint aroma; grain, mild spicy hop
T - typical pale lager flavors with grain, spicy hop, a bit grassy, but not much going on
M - lighter body, ample carbonation
O - nothing special here. I'd rather just drink an MGD or something

Easy-drinking chugger from Spoetzl. Not a lot of smell or taste for that matter. Maybe a step up from standard US macro brews, maybe not. I wouldn't turn it down on a hot day.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: Lighter yellow with a thin white head.

Smell: Almost no smell, light corn, wheat, and malt.

Mouthfeel/Taste: Smooth light bodied. Taste of light hops and malts with wheat and corn.

Overall: Nothing special about this beer. Glad I tried it.

Pours nicely into pint glass, with a fine white head that has some lacing. Very mild malt aroma. The taste is very blase, not much to it. Fine for lunch on a work day, or a hot summer day when you are thirsty.
