look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

The color is a nice amber, and it had a nice clean head, which quickly diminished.

The aroma is pretty good, lots of yeast and actually smells a decent bit like cornbread.

The taste is nice and clean, but pretty standard lager. A bit tart at first but diminishes into a nice cornbread. While the finish is clean but rather short lived.

Drinkability as always for this beer is quite impeccable.

Serving type: can

3.01/5  rDev -11.7%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

Now that these have made it to Massachusetts I finally got my hands on one.

A: Pours a slight white head that quickly dies down. Some lacing. I am surprised by the rich golden color, much different than most American lagers in appearance.

S: Not detecting much of anything, a little corn, a little skunk.

T: Very light watery tasting, some malt, some apple juice flavor, some skunk. No hops detected, very slight aftertaste.

M: The carbonation was rather lively, rather clean finish appropriate for the style.

O: I should say that American adjunct lagers are not my style of beer. Having said that I think that this beer was less offensive than most. I could see how this could be thirst quenching on a hot summers day, but there is not much flavor or complexity here.
