2.7/5  rDev +15.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

The beer pours an almost clear color with a little gold tint. The head is a thick frothy white which quickly fades to a spotty lace. The aroma is light with little malt or hop scent. The taste is skunky, but refreshing. It has no malt character. I hate the use of brewing adjuncts to create a paler, cleaner beer. The mouthfeel is average. It is a low bodied beer with good carboantion. It drinks rough for me, but there are a lot out there who love it; I can't figure it out.

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".

Not outstanding but not terrible. Definitely not the King of Beers as the slogan says. It's pretty average. Light in coloring, easy to drink, maybe a bit on the watery side. Definitely not the best I've ever tasted but not the worst either. I would drink it at say, a football game.
