2.15/5  rDev -26.4%
look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

got a $25 dollar gas card when I won an "employee of the month" type thing, used most of it for gas but bought this can just becuase it was in the gas station shop and I had never reviewed it.
"poured from the 22 oz can into my new belgium goblet"

A big 2 + fingers of bleach white head. settles to a sticky film with negligible lacing
(note - this is in a tin can! takes me back to the 70's - even has a seam)

s: my first thought: MACRO. that all to familiar slightly metallic tinge - but otherwise "crisp and clean" are what I can think of to say that's nice

t: pretty tasteless. mostly just a foamy mouthful, but just a hint of flavor that's hard for me to put a name to not bad but sort of - plasticy?

m ; very foamy in the mouth, also watery in a big way

d: hugely drinkalbe. good candidtate for beer bonging. NOT a quality brew by any measure.
get more - as long as it's free (grins)

Serving type: can

3.01/5  rDev +3.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

This beer is a pale gold that has some brightness, and it has absolute clarity in its body. It grows more of a film than a head but a thick one, and that recedes to a wisp and some edging that does manage light spotting.
It's somewhat vegetal but not sloppily so with grains that, while prominent, don't domineer or go that oddly astringent direction that some beers can take. There's a bit of bright, fairly sweet citrus and a kiss of something floral. All in all, for a style that certainly seems like a weaker one, this holds down as average.
The body is light and goes semi-dry only toward the finish. It's quite crisp all the way, and more than moderately clean. It's got a bit of smoothness to it as well. Alcohol surprises with some unexpected heat partway through.

Serving type: can
