Poured from a can into a pint glass. Short head that quickly dispersed to spider webbing, then quickly again to bare liquid. Crystal clear light amber, very pleasing color.

Smell is largely adjunct and malty.

Taste is very good for a beer of this price, but unimpressive in general. It's not Bud Light, but it's not truly a craft beer either. Adjuncts are apparent.

Mouthfeel is thin. Easy to drink - perhaps suitable for a hot day or sessioning.

Overall this is a decent beer, better than most available macros but never to be confused for a pure craft beer. It's clearly dominated by adjuncts but it has enough malt to push it into "not bad" territory. Worth picking up if short on funds or for enjoying with several friends.

From twelve ounce undated bottle.
Light amber body, no head and no lacing. Aroma of grass and sweet corn. No hoppiness noted. Watery, slight fizz with a mouth swish. Not at all balanced. Crisp though. Must be drunk ice cold, taste flatens and worsens as it warms!

Recently available in my area. Had to try though not my favorite style.
Poured from a 12oz. bottle into a standard pint glass.
Clear copper in color, with a rather short head of fading foam.
Aroma-Faint pilsner malt and faint caramel note.
Taste-Lightly toasted malt, faintly sweet caramel note, barely there hop presence. Thin-bodied and best not allowed to warm too much. A step above most macros. A decent "please the masses" brew for a large gathering.
