Beer pours a nice dark, but clear yellow color. A slight amount of bubbly head, but not much.

Beer smells of straw and slightly bready.

Beer tastes very crisp. Slight grassy and corn tastes.

Mouthfell is fairly light and very drinkable. Good sessionable lager

Hap & Harry's lager (Nashville, TN) on tap at the Casual Pint in Knoxville.

Pale golden with a very short-lived head 

Looks like a pitiful light lager, but has a decent aroma and flavor. 
Mostly malty in the nose but with a subtle hop presence. 

Flavor: notably more hoppy that the aroma indicates, with a lingering if light hop note. 

Feel: light body; crisp carbonation. Thin but not watery.

O: good flavor for style

Small white head dies into a nice lacing above a clear golden colored beer.

Aroma is sour grain malts with a little breadiness and maybe a little hops adding to the sourness.

A lighter bodied beer with a pretty big taste with a lot of sour grain malts, corn syrupiness, and some hops to a lesser degree.

A slightly dry aftertaste that brings with it some slight sourness.

When i first saw this in the glass I thought "Yippee, another Budweiser wannabee", but this beer had a lot more tastes coming through, I could drink a few of these.

Absolutely wonderful after a long day at work, refreshing and light. However, without a good days work before hand I found the beer to be lacking and almost a different experience. Very little to no head when poured from a bottle. I live in Buffalo so get a lot of exposure to Canadian and American lagers, and this was better than most easily attainable North American Lagers.

Somewhere between a miller light and Yeungling. Its typical look of an American lager, a medium copper, clear and with medium foam that fades fast. Sweet caramel smells, grassy hints of hops and sweet corn. The taste is a bit watery with corn, and caramel malt in the middle and a low hop background of earthy, grassy hints. Light, refreshing, crisp, clean and easy to drink. Pretty typical and boring. I wonder if it is an attempt to appeal to the commerical crowd?

look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Pours a dark golden color with a fizzy white head that leaves leaves so fast it doesn't even remember the definition of lacing.

Smell: Sweet and malty.

Taste: Very sweet and malty with a rum type flavor.

Overall: The beer is way too sweet and I really don't like the rum flavor.

No head, no lace. Yellow color and nearly clear.

It smells like wet cardboard and brewery floor. Not attractive.

Round, malty flavor. Nearly no hop which makes this slightly sweet. Thin bodied and highly carbonated. No aftertaste.
