3.03/5  rDev -1.6%

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some malts. Taste is light, mild, some malts and grains, almost like a light beer. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a mediocre brew, nothing offensive, just bland.

2.8/5  rDev -9.1%

Pours a clear, straw color. 1/5 inch head of a white color. Poor retention and poor lacing. Smells of pale malt, slight sweet malt, hint of hop, and adjunct. Fits the style of an American Pale Lager. Mouth feel is sharp and crisp, with an average carbonation level. Tastes of pale malt, hint of sweet malt, hint of hop, and adjunct. Overall, the aroma and body are dominated by adjunct. Weak appearance and poor blend.

3.04/5  rDev -1.3%

A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a short whit head that quickly died down, leaving only a thin collar around the edge of the glass.
S: Light to moderate aromas of corn are present in the nose—hints of grainy malts become noticeable as the beer warms up.
T: The taste has flavors of corn and nondescript malts along with hints of bitterness.
M: It feels just about medium-bodied and relatively clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer might look like an adjunct lager, is definitely a cut above with less aromas and flavors of corn adjuncts and a mouthfeel that isn't watery.
