look: 2 | smell: 1.75 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1.75 | overall: 1.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a thin white head that fades very quickly and leaves a very thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains adjuncts, light caramelized malts, and a very faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready from a thin malt character and adjuncts. Then some light malt sweetness comes in. The hops presence is extremely mild. There doesn’t seem to me much balance only because there isn’t much in the beer to balance out. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little crisp and not very smooth, light body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Not flavorful at all, goes down easily and not too filling since there isn’t much to the beer, very mild kick, not the best representation of style, even for a light beer this one isn’t very good.

Poured this brew in my glass and watched as the thin head went south in twenty seconds. Little lacing, little cling. Color is amber, a little darker than most light beers, rating a 4 on the SRM chart. Smells like corn, rice, and wheat...slightly sweet. Tastes of barley, wheat, corn and rice, with a slight hop finish. Watery in my mouth, too much carbonation, bites at my tongue. I could probably drink a bushel full and not get much of a buzz. Another light beer that is just lacking in everything to be worth paying for, none the less drinking. Most likely my first and last.

[bottle - 12 oz] Not a bad light beer. Has a sickly pale yellow color with mild carbonation. Light aroma with some mild grass and corn hints. Weak taste of hops, grass, corn and some dry malts. Very watery. No head. Not a beer I would get again I do not think.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

Pale gold color with a good size white head with fair retention which leaves some lacing. Smells of cooked vegetables and some grain. Disappointing. There is no hop aroma.

The beer taste much like it smells. Cooked vegetables, grain, and a small amount of sweetness. Nothing to get excited about.

As expected, light bodied, thin and watery, with decent carbonation. This is not a beer I would seek out again.
