3.7/5  rDev +9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 16oz. can (code 2771 which means it was canned the 277th day of 2011 being Oct. 4).

Appearance: A pretty clear, pale yellow body with an eggshell white head. Good showing with some lacing and nice retention.

Smell: Crisp, cereal, some fruit but kind of neutral.

Taste: A sweet kiss of honey which immediately sets it apart from most adjuncts. The lager flavor is pretty strong as well and does a nice job of masking the adjuncts which are still there.

Mouthfeel: The malt makes this a pretty full body all things considered. Consistent through and through.

Overall: Pleasantly surprised by this one and could easily pass as a regular lager. Probably my favorite "adjunct".

Serving type: can

Golden beer with a big, foamy head. Strong aroma of bread with some hints of berries and grass. Crisp, fruity flavor with bread and grain; the breadiness fades as the beer gets a little warmer. I've already reviewed this beer from a can and this is radically different. It's still a decent adjunct lager, but buy it in a can if possible.

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

Pours with a two to three finger head.

Color is a light orange but still translucent.

Smells of strong grain come through.

Tastes of malt with a touch of hops.

Mouthfeel is full of crisp carbonation that ends slightly silky.

I would recommend this lager as a quality brew at a very affordable price.

Serving type: can

look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 2

Pours a clear dark yellow with a thin head. The aroma is of corn and bread with a hint of sweet malt. The flavor is mainly doughy with some hay thrown in. The flavor is decent for an American adjunct lager in the beginning but it gives way to a BMC flavor and watery thin mouthfeel as it warms. Narragansett Lager is acceptable. Barely recommended.
