poured from a bootle into a pint glass.
A- amber but not dark
S- this beer actually smells like an adjunct lager from a keg. reminds me of my kegger days.
T- not hoppy at all, but the malt comes through. nothing stands out except the fact that it is slightly more bitter than a bud or mich or pbr.
M- the bitterness remains on the back of the tongue for a while, which is actually nice. It is one of the few things that separates it from the beast.
O- I should have known it was not worth it when I saw it in a local yocal gas station beer fridge. there is nothing that stands out tastewise, and if it were not for the extra malts it would be indistinguishable from any run of the mill adjunct lager.
Not worth the time. save yourself a few bucks and buy Bud or PBR.

Poured a amber tinted light gold body with decent head and lace. Aroma is mild with earthy hops blended with a mostly grainy malt aroma. Beer is light, smooth, rather simple and plain, a balance between citric, bitter hops and a mild sweet malt presence but this beer doesn't pack much of a punch. Dry, easy finish, this is akin to your average lawnmower beer.
