3.03/5 rDev -5.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Pours a clear golden orange with a foamy off-white head that settles to a film on top of the beer. Small streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, and some grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet grain and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a low level of carbonation with an almost flat mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer with a definite malt and hop presence but it's pretty bland and gets much less drinkable as it warms up in my opinion.

4/5 rDev +24.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4
Appearance: pours a thin head that recedes quickly. Lots of streaming carbonation and bubbles clinging to the sides of the glass. Color is a deep golden. Mild lacing.
Aroma: rich aroma of toasted malt, a bit of grassiness and some hop spice. Very pleasant aroma. Mouthfeel: slightly heavier than most lagers, has a fullness in the mouth feel, almost some wine like characteristics. Finish is dry.
Flavor: nice combination that mirrors the aroma. Toasted white bread, some grassy flavors, and some mild lingering hop bitterness.
Serving type: bottle

poured into my Blue Moon pilsner glass and immediately got 9 inches of head. I mean foam. waited. then poured some more. I can smell corn. frothy head. not special in any regard. why do I do this to myself? I have a cellar full of really good stuff and yet I buy this turd, and others.... it said "all malt" so I was intrigued.... it 'piqued' my curiosity... wish it were only 12 oz instead of this.... holy crap this can is 22oz!!!
first drink is bland, bitter, sweet, corn-y. immediately tells my brain to order pizza. now I know why- bland bread carbs to wipe out nasty taste... but hey! everyone gave them a 75 in the ratings! that's better than the other swill I have left. I ought to just switch over to whiskey now while i'm still in a good mood...
wait! "brewed and canned in Ontario Canada...." WTF??? darned Canadians.,....
