2.65/5  rDev -4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: The beer is clear deep yellow in color and has a light to moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a thin white head that died down relatively quickly and left delicate lacing on the surface and a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of adjunct malts in the nose.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and is filled with flavors of adjunct malts such as corn and rice. There are also some hints of apple cider and mineral flavors in the finish.
M: It feels light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation. There is a bit of dryness in the finish.
O: The metallic nature and strong adjunct natures don't make this a beer that I would want to try again.

2.91/5  rDev +4.7%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.75

Poured from 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance: medium golden hue with no haze and a very strong effervescence. Head is a finger of frothy white foam. Not too bad.

Smell: sweetish malt with a little bit of an adjuncty and plasticy character. A bit bland; not the worst thing in the world, though.

Taste: like the aroma, there's not a lot going on in the flavor department past a little bit of sweetness and a little bit of bitterness. I would not go so far as to say there is any hop flavor, though. It's not disgusting, but it doesn't really appeal to me.

Mouthfeel: light body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: this beer is uninspiring to me, but it's also not terrible. It's hot out today, which is contextually appropriate, but even that doesn't strongly help its drinkability.

3.19/5  rDev +14.7%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.25

A: Clear, light gold color, with half a finger of white head; lacing is nil.

S: Grassy notes, with faint grain aromas. Hints of floral hops. Nothing powerful here.

T: There's a brief moment of sweet and bready malt, but if you blink you'll miss it. It's followed by another brief moment of tartness, then a mild but lingering bitterness from slightly spicy hops takes over through the finish.

M: Moist, but nicely carbonated. Refreshing, with a hint of dryness. By far, the mouthfeel is the best attribute of this beer.

O: Decent for what it is: A thirst-quenching lager designed to cool you down on a hot day, or pair with a salty, spicy bowl of Vietnamese phở noodle soup.
