In a pint glass:

A: clear gold body with small amounts of white foam trying to make a head, but just doesn't do it, no lacing

S: light malt, rice, slight really subdued hops

T: balanced between subdued hops and malts, but there's really nothing there

M: light to medium, sessionable, no aftertaste or finish

O: an average AAL, decent to come back to in the summer, not sure why I had it recently

2.25/5  rDev -24.5%

A clear, pale straw colored beer with a snowy white fluffy head.

Light, crisp aroma. Slightly pungent and a little malty.

Pilsner malt and slight hops to give flavor balance. More of a flavor profile than most American style lagers. But, still along the same lines.

Light, refreshing mouthfeel with a crisp, clean finish.

I would consider this a small step up from Budweiser, etc.
