Pours a pale straw, and whilst there is a huge amount of churn and bubble which looks enticing upon pour the head fades really quickly.

Aromas of grains and corn. Some doughy malts.

Tatste is quite bland and a cross between Coopers Pale and Helles lager. I believe this is supposed to be a fresh hop lager but it isn't doing that for me. Add in a slight lemonade flavour as well. mrs heygeebee notes a little honeycomb.

Mouthfeel nicely zesty.

Overall not a beer that makes a statement which is a shame as it is semi-premium.

A: Pours a slightly hazy golden color with a small head that fades to bits of lacing.

S: Aroma of fresh grain, bit of malt sweetness and citrus in the background.

T: Taste of malt sweetness and grain with a trace of citrus. Mild bitterness and a clean finish.

F: Fairly light body, bit crisp and quite smooth.

O: Decent drinker but not a beer I would go out of my way for.

First of all, it's a low alcohol brew in green glass at a liquor store that's two years old. And it smells and tastes like it. This is just a basic bland beer. Absolutely nothing special about it. No idea why they went to all the trouble to label it this way, unless they're trying to hoodwink folks. Poured with a small off-white head that quickly settled; no lace. Color is a clear amber. Smells skunky, taste has some of that, plus common bitter, some tang, some sweet, short lived. that's about it.
