16 oz tall boy can, 5.3% abv. Clear gold color, with some active carbonation showing. White frothy head stays for a minute, then disappears leaving no trace.

Cereal grains, and a bit of cooked corn in the nose. Slight earthy hop notes. A bit of a sour, lactic note. Perhaps a bit musty at the back end.

Fairly clean cereal malts. A very slight lactic sharpness. Not a whole lot going on here. Slight earthy hops at the end, that do not linger long at all.

Light to medium body, no traces of alcohol. This is made for quaffing, which is no problem. A very simple beer. Take it for what it is.

A=Light straw yellow,very clear. Lots of carbonation in here,Not much lacing at all.

S= Lots of yeast and earthy malts pretty much sums it up.A slight sweetness.

T= I didn't get the hops in the nose But they are In there.Hops pull through and meld with the bready malts but overall that's really all that's going on in this one.

M=Thin feel and very light. Tons of stinging carbonation. Clean aftertaste.

O= Overall, decent summer beer but I won't get this one for the price overall I just think it is to much for such a basic beer.
