This is by far the best mass produced, mass distributed American style lager. One thing I try to keep in mind when rating beers is the style of beer. Now is this one of my all time favorites and I would order/buy all the time, no, but it is a perfect beer for when I am at the ball park, at a bar/restaurant that does not serve a variety of beers. The beer provides a nice clear pale yellow/straw color with a thin head. Not much of a nose, it smells like most other American style lagers. The beer is very drinkable with the right level of carbonation. It is light with some malt overtones, but very smooth and crisp. This is a beer that has its place. If I am going to be outside in the summer for any reason, I am going to grab this beer before say a heavy porter or stout. Overall, this is a beer that I enjoy a lot during the summer months and should be regarded as the best American style lager.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Bought a 30 pack from Wegmans Calkins Rd on 7/31/14. Poured into a glass tumbler, served ice cold.

appearance: palest yellow with a 1 finger pure white head. vigorous bubbles. no lacing.

smell: very mild with just the faintest aroma of noble hops and sour yeast.

taste: faint sweetness is well balanced with equally faint bitterness. Finish is clean with a seltzer like spritz.

mouthfeel: good.

overall: the overall impression is that this beer is engineered to be the least offensive beer possible; no strong flavors, no off flavors, very mild taste. I'm guessing endless marketing and testing has created a beer that will offend no one. If you are looking for an alcoholic beverage that is easy to drink and that gives the drinker the notion that they are drinking beer then this is it. Really it is alcoholic seltzer water that faintly resembles beer.
