Pennsylvania

2.8/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A bottle poured into a glass.

A: The beer is a richer yellow than an American adjunct lager, but still more of a straw yellow. The head lingers quite a while longer and leaves some lacing.

S: It smells husky, grainy, sweet, and a little off. There is a very strange skunky aroma present on this one.

T: The taste is extremely bland. It is just a hint of sweetness with an overall watery flavor. There is a slight bitterness in the finish. It isn't a bad flavor at all, it just seems extremely generic and in no way separated from the rest of the pale lager class.

MF: The mouthfeel is typical for this type of beer.

O: I have heard good things about this beer most of my life and actually never had one until now. I probably won't ever have one again either, unless its free (this one was.) It is just boring and overrated, popular only because others say so and comes along with a strong marketing campaign. The worst Belgian beer I have ever had.

3.21/5  rDev +4.6%
look: 1.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

appearance is no better than say Budweiser. perhaps even worse.
That aside, this beer smells fantastic, such a surprised. The taste is at first a reflection of the smell then immediately dies down to something far less impressionable. Undoubtedly does that kill a point or so in the taste score. With a beer of this piss yellow hue of course it will be a tad watery. And so the mouthfeel lost a point or so. Overall since this beer has some perks, I say give it three stars. Try it at least once. Its okay.
