Grain is the only aroma I get. It smells like grain cereal (cheerios, grape nuts), and it's appealing to me whatsoever.

Perfectly straw yellow with a clarity to match. Crisp white head that sticks it's lacing to the glass. It is a great looking beer.

Flavor is a bit better than the aroma- there is still grain, but it also has a light kind of herbal quality to it. It's well balanced against the bitterness. Mouthfeel is light and bubbly with moderate carbonation. Smooth drinking though, and refreshing. I wouldn't buy it again, but if it was bought for me I wouldn't turn it down.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Very mediocre Pale Ale. On as beer scale of "Budweiser to Sierra Nevada Pale Ale" this beer grades out a lot closer to Bud. Looks pretty good. Nice clear golden color, with a smallish white head. Minimal patches of filmy lacing and average head retention.

Smell is a little grassy hops, not much else. Taste has mild biscuity malt and a little grassy hops. Did not taste crappy adjunct materials but the overall flavor was weak and bland.

Mouthfeel is thin like an adjunct lager with a little crispness from the grassy hops.

On the whole a very average lawnmower beer.

Serving type: can
