3.59/5 rDev +54.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75
12 oz. bottle poured into pilsner
L: straw, very pale yellow, crystal clear; about 2/3-inch white foam head, a little sticking and lacing
S: grain ... a hint of barley sweetness; watered-down lemon; hint of bread malt sweetness
T: very kolsch-like ... some barley malt sweetness, not bready or like biscuits but still sweet, with the slightest taste of earthy/pepper hops. not bitter. loads and loads of grain taste, no corn (obviously) but lots of cereal grain
F: surprisingly full and not just from over-carbonation -- it's not overly watery
O: i'm shocked, but this isn't half bad, and it's better than a handful of craft beers I've had in the kolsch/blonde ale category. there's next to no hop presence, so it doesn't compare well to pilseners, but octoberfests and dortmunder lagers, yeah ... it's similar to those. everything tastewise is pretty muted, but it has just enough sweetness to it to offer some character.
when in doubt and stuck with the typical BMC offerings, this is a no-brainer. adjunct lagers are thought of as swill, but this is MUCH MUCH better than the BMC "light beer".
