look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Not quite crystal clear golden color. Fizzy white head the calms to a film, no lacing.

Aroma: Sweet rice, grains up front. Smelled metallic at first but much better after the beer settled for a few minutes.

Taste: Starts out a bit metallic, sour, and rough. As the beer warms, it seems to mellow out into cardboard, papery grains, and just a little bit of a metallic finish.

Mouthfeel: Almost creamy, but has too much bite on the finish.

Overall: A bit rough around the edges, the flavor seemed to change from the first sip to the last. Didn't really care for the inconsistency.

Serving type: can

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Overall, this is a good tasting beer; nice malt flavors with some hop notes. The color is somewhat between a yellow and orange color, very appealing color for a beer.

The biggest issue, in my opinion, is that it is very flat tasting. There was no head after pouring this beer and I see no signs of carbonation within the glass. This leaves something desired on the palate when drinking.

A- Sight orange yellow, more yellow, with a high white head

S- Slight corn sweetness and white bread with faint noble hops

T- similar to nose with the corn sweetness similar to many green bottle european lagers but weaker with less skunk

M- medium thin mouthfeel, easy drinking

O- Not good not bad, and does remind me of a junior version of say Grolsch.
