look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Appearance: Perfectly clear light gold/straw. Head is bright-white and bubbly. Quickly drops to a small cap and collar. Lively carbonation pulls throughout. Little to no lacing.

Smell: Pale, slightly bready malts. Solid punch of lager yeast. Straw and freshly mowed grass. Some corn and a vague spiciness. Mild and inoffensive. Some raw pale grain.

Taste: Sweet grain. Pale bready malts offer a corn-like sweetness. Husky grain. Some solid hits of grass and straw. Underlying vague spiciness from the hops. Slight caramel malt sweetness, almost cooked. Clean and succinct.

Mouthfeel: Light to medium body with a medium to high carbonation. All on point for the style. Slightly dry, but clean overall.

Overall: You can be my creepy neighbor if you're offering these up.

One of the better American adjunct lagers on the market. Nice and clean and even when warm it doesn't bottom out and suck. Drinkable at all temperatures and that's worth a little something, especially for the style.

Poured from a 16oz tallboy into a Samuel Adams perfect pint glass.

A: Perfect golden color...crystal clear. Normal pour leads to a big 3 finger fizzy head that fades and leaves a nice fluff of fuzz on the top. Tornado of fizzy bubbles rise up from bottom.

S: Pretty decent lager smell. Grains, faint hops.

T: Full flavored lager. Lots of crisp malts with some hop balance. Not anything special but for a lager, this one is nice.

M: Medium bodied (big for a lager) and a nice crisp finish.

O: A decent, easy drinking lager.
