Nebraska

2.38/5  rDev -7.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

First impressions are that a 12 pack of stubby 11.2 oz bottles is not a great deal; thats only about 11 12 oz bottles.

A: Pours a clear, bright yellow color. A vigorous pour produces a thin white head about 1/4 inch that quickly fades to a partial cover and thin ring.

S: Aroma? Not really much scent at all. Slight hint of some semi-sweet adjuncts, not sure if corn is an ingredient but it smells a little corny.

T: In line with the scent. I don't expect much for this style and that's pretty much what I get. A little adjuncty sweetness then it's down the hatch and gone.

M: Light in body a little watery (basically that's all this is) with decent carbonation.

O: Overall this light, low alcohol lager is probably pretty good in Jamaica, it's not too bad on a 100 degree day in Nebraska. However, this is a mediocre (at best) easily forgettable beer. And I get about one less in a 12 pack.
