2.68/5  rDev -9.8%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a pale golden color with a two fingered foamy head that quickly recedes to a rocky foam on top of the brew. Carbonation bubbles can be seen rising from the bottom.

S: A little skunky to begin followed by light notes of grains and a little breadiness.

T: Ah, I'm not really sure how to describe the taste here. Any flavors are very mild and subdued. A little bit of graininess, some malts and a little bit of yeastiness.

M: Medium amount of carbonation for an incredibly light bodied beer. In fact, almost not body to speak of.

O: This beer is average at best. There's very little noticeable flavors and is mediocre at best.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Clear gold in color with 3 fingers of foamy white head, which laces nicely.

S: Skunky grains and grassy malts

T: Sweet corn, grains, all outlined in a mildly sweet skunk.

M: Nice tingle and good carbonation for an adjunct. Light bodied as you'd expect.

O: A nice change of pace from typical American adjunct lagers. An easy drinker with some real unique character.

Pours a clear light straw yellow. The tall white head is somewhere between frothy and creamy. The head is mostly lasting with good lacing. The flavor has a spicy alcoholic quality with a clean finish. Balanced but not very deep. The light body is creamy and lively with a lightly astringent finish. Better than countless other american standards.

12 oz.

Pours a light yellow gold, white head dissipates rapidly.

Smells of adjuncts and barley malts.

Tastes like corn sugar and barley malts, maybe a whisper of hop.

Feels is thin with sudsy carbonation.

So-so, good enough for the style I guess, sessionable and thirst quenching, but nothing special. Only marginally better than the big three.
