look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Pours a clear yellow color with a centimeter thick head that dissipates pretty quickly. Has nice lacing.

Smell - Very skunky, grassy, and has a fruity/citrus smell to it.

Taste - Grainy, grassy, hints of bread and lemon, and bitter at the end.

Mouthfeel - Medium body and carbonation.

Overall - Tastes similar to Lowenbrau.. So if you like imported, premium type lagers this is for you.

I remember me and my friends used to sort of joke about this beer before I was into craft beer at all. They got it once randomly and we all thought it was definitely better than Coors and Bud Light.

A- Ultra-uber pale pour, clearer color than ginger ale even. When it was pouring out of the bottle it looked clear. Small white head forms to about a pinky in size but dies down quickly, it had a creamy texture. Cloud and ring remain leaving no lace.

S- Not much going on here, I get an aroma comparable to Budweiser and Coors Regular. Really faint overall, maybe just slight hints of yeast bread, tiny fruits and light sugars.

T- A bit more going on here. General sweet grain being the biggest thing followed by some yeast bread and light fruits. A bit of a grassy apple juice sweet feel. Slight vegetal notes with warmth.

MF- Highly carbonated light body that stings the palate a bit. A bit watery with a slight bitter finish.

Really not bad when nice and cold. As it warms up just a bit, the flaws of the style start to show, it is hard to describe but it must just lack a balance that beer brewed with more hops and malt displays.
