Pennsylvania

1.78/5  rDev -3.3%
look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

12 oz can poured into pint glass

Pours a pale straw yellow with a fizzy head which quickly disappears, leaving a bit of film and barely any lacing.

A bit of grassyness and grain with a hint of aluminum. MMM.

Plenty of toasted grain and that oh-so familiar grassy macro lager taste. Essentially devoid of profile and flavor, although its not quite as offensive as others in the genre. Finishes clear and crisp.

Super bubbly, light, and a hint of dryness. The flavor isn't even close to quality, but for macro lager this is probably better than miller or coors. Either way this is pretty pointless, and with all of these macro beers I still feel like I'm tasting the inside of the can more than what's inside.

Serving type: can

1.59/5  rDev -13.6%
look: 1 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours a clear yellow with a thin fizzy head. The smell was mostly rice if anything at all. The taste was a lot more rice. Was not a fan but to just have something at a party. I can understand why this would be chosen. I should not be able to clearly read small print through a beer though.
