12 oz brown bottle, coded date on the neck

Average in look for the style, nothing else to say here.

Smell and taste are on the sweet side, vegetal character, a bit metallic, with more sweet corn. Ugh.

M - Pretty terrible, even for the style. Way over carbonated, rips across the palate, not smooth at all.

O - Won't be revisiting this one.

Decent head at first pour but settles very quickly. A clear pale yellow similar to Bud or Miller

Smell: Very light & mild hop aroma. Other than that there is not much to it.

Taste: Very Light bodied but clean and smooth. Slight and I mean a slight hop taste. Not much taste or flavor.

Poured from a bottle into a glass.

A-Crisp golden color with a decent head.

S- Smells of hops and malts. Detected a slight fruity smell but can't quite place it.

T- Decent taste. Hops and a malty taste are present with a citrus like quality.

M- Good carbonation and a medium bodied. Refreshing and quite smooth.

O- Overall this is a decent beer that holds true to its type. Not the best lager out there but it sure beats any bmc.
