look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours a clear light fizzy yellow with 1 finger of white head

Smells like corn, cooked vegetables, grassy hops, cereal grains, and some savory spice.

Taste is exactly the same as the nose. Not very much in the way of hops or bitterness. Finishes kind of sweet with an apple juice type flavor.

The mouthfeel is really light with some medium carbonation. Not overcarbonated like most adjunct lagers

Definitly better than BMC. One of the best adjunct lagers I have had- not sure if that is saying much. Really drinkable- goes down easy. Not really my style but it is very good for what it is.

24oz can courtesy of Drazzamatazz, into a massive pilsner glass that I got for Christmas a few years ago.

A: Pours a pale yellow with an enormous rocky white head, a good two inches worth that sticks around nicely. A few spots of lacing left behind. Excellent clarity.

S: Slightly sulfur, cooked vegetables, a touch of spicy hops. Smells like a lager.

T: Grainy and sweet, not much if anything in the way of hops. No bitterness to speak of but a little bit of a floral hop character. For what it is, it isn't bad tasting. Good lawnmower beer.

M: Slick mouthfeel with slightly above average carbonation, finish is dry and crisp. Nice and clean.

O: Not a bad lager. This would be an awesome tailgating beer, as I could drink it all day long, and so could most everybody I know. Pretty tasty stuff.

A solid entry in the lawnmower beer category. Lively carbonation. Clean, moderately crisp malt with subdued grain notes. A touch of grassyness and a hint of Nehi grape (I may be the only one who gets this from some lagers - I find it prounounced in Moelson Canadian). A nice, classic macro feel to this beer. Not particularly flavorful, but clean and easy to drink.

Poured out a white two finger foamy head that is rare in most American Adjuncts. Good lacing and head retention. The head sticks around till the last drop. Clear golden color with carbonation bubbles racing to the top non stop.

The aroma has a mild spicy hop that is complimented with hints of sweet malt and grains.

One of the more flavorful adjuncts I have tried. Spicy hops, grassy grain. And this is rare but there is hint of sweet malt.

Finishes clean, a little dry with a lingering hop bitterness.

Well, this lager must have just arrived in the south. I had never heard about it until a few weeks go. This is a classic, clean, easy drinking American lager that has flavor to it! PBR, Schlitz, High Life, and now Narragansett!! These are the American Macros I never mind picking up if I am on a budget.
