woodychandler comes through with yet another canned beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. This beer almost exploded out of the can and settled down with a caramel color and 1.5 inches of head. Smell is rather mild, some hops are present. Taste is also hops up front, some grains, a tad bitter at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall was a refreshing and enjoyable beer.

The beer pours a slightly off white and foamy head. The beer is a hazy amber color that is a little bit copper and leans towards the red side. The beer smell is a yeasty and caramel malty smell with a bit of alcohol on the nose. The hops are a slight note but still make an appearance. The beer has a much stronger hop presence than in the smell. The hop taste is balanced by the malt taste. Similar to the smell, the malts primarily consist of a sweet and light caramel taste. Additionally, the beer has a slight mineral taste as well as a bit of alcohol. The feel is crisp and lean with biting carbonation. A pretty good lager and shocking that this came from a MillerCoors subsidiary.

Pours a hazy amber gold color with a massive 2 finger foamy beige head that was full of little bubbles and faded slowly, with craters forming in the top of the head, leaving good foamy lacing and rings as it went down.
Smells of sweet malt, caramel, floral hops, lemon zest, tangerine, grains, wheat bread and yeast; surprisingly potent malty goodness in this nose that was a lot more than most lagers put out with a very sweet overall nose.
Tastes like the nose, but the sweetness is more malt and brown sugar with the hops adding light spices and balance; flavor is a combo of sweet malt, caramel, floral hops, lemon zest, piney hops, grains, wheat bread, toffee, mild spices like coriander and cinnamon, biscuit, nut and yeast; a lot more complex tasting than I had anticipated and while basically a malty beer with hoppy accents, it worked for me and was tasty and enjoyable. Very basic in it’s finished product, but the flavors that show up throughout are well defined and work well with the others.
Mouthfeel is light and watery with low carbonation, a light to medium body and dry bready finish that has a slight hop bitterness combined with a grainy sweet aftertaste.
Overall this was a nice middle of the road beer that shocked the hell out of me since the macro owned stigma can give misconceptions and decreased interest, but my friend Vinny insisted I try it as he had 2 cases brought to NY so I thank him again for sharing a few with me. A definite session beer that goes down smooth and easy, glad these escaped Colorado and made it to NY as they were easy to put down and enjoy.
