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

I poured this out of the bottle to see some smoke coming out. I poured it to see a less than one finger head that does not retain and laces a bit. The color of the head is puffy fluffy white. The body is a golden color that is a bit pale. Very little bubbles rise to the top which for me is not a good sign.

The smell is maybe barley maybe hops, but definitely water and metallic tones. Not a whole lot of character to it. If there are any flavorful barley and hops in this beer, it doesn't show too much.

The taste is of hops and water. When I say hops, I mean in a very faint and light sense. This is very adjunct and has little character. I taste water and those metallic tones.

The mouthfeel is harsh because of too much carbonation in my opinion. I would like it if the mouthfeel was better.

Overall, its pretty good for an adjunct. Take BL over coors, busch, PBR, or any of those worse adjuncts. I like it if I just want to get drunk. Its nothing special to enjoy the taste of. Its not intolerable either though.
