A: Pours a very pale straw yellow with a fizzy soda pop huge pure white head. Head dies down fast but holds a decent amount with minimal lacing.
S: Sweet grain, hay, mild sweet grassy hops. Quite sweet, which I suspect covers up other flaws that are hidden behind it.
T: Malty and sweet grains is the primary flavor with a non-distinct hops bitterness in the background. I find the bitterness quite pleasant in this, but the sweetness is a bit of a turnoff. The packaging claims "perfect" balance but this is too sweet with not enough hops complexity. The balance here is that is has pluses and minuses. The one thing it has going for it is very little off-flavors, and so I call this a good adjunct lager.
M: Light, fizzy and tingly. If drank quickly not a lot of flavor just bubbles.
D: Ah, drinkability. For some reason I saw this in a commercial. While the taste is not perfect, I'll be damned if I didn't just drink a few of these things working on the review. Easy to drink, nothing very strong or flavorful here, but not exactly water either. Nowhere near among my top preferences for a session beer, but easy drinking. I have to say this of course is an adjunct lager and I have to scoff at the BA member overall score of a D+... this is not a "great American" beer but is decent enough. And for the record I am not one of those noveau BMC apologists that populate BA recently. I offer no excuses of "quality control" just an honest opinion that this beer will not kill your children.
