look: 2.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 3

I was given this in a blind taste test. This is something everybody should try. I was able to identify it as a macrobrew based on some of its characteristics (thank goodness) but I believe everybody that slams this beer would think differently if they tasted it blind. It has more malt goodness than you'd think. I rated it, as one should, against the rest of the American Macro Lager style.

Appearance: Pale yellow with quickly receeding head and no retention, very slight lacing.

Smell: I was surprised by how malty the smell is. There were very few traces of corn or rice in what I smelled. I was tasting this totally blind, in a glass, and from the smell I would have guessed this was a strong-ish lager… that was obviously dashed once I tasted it.

Taste: The taste is malty, and I did not detect the corn/rice until about my 4th sip. It's rather undercarbonated and very watery. I thought this might have been a home brewed lager where not enough malt was used. There is a very short guest appearance of hops like somebody running past a window. I think this is a decent beer and one that people would enjoy more/rate higher if they tasted it blind like I did. I was still able to identify it as an American Macro Lager after a few sips, but the lack of expectation allowed me to appreciate that this is an average beer.

Mouthfeel: The mouthfeel is light, watery and insubstantial.

Drinkability: This is a drinkable beer. That is partially due to its being so light and watery. It would be more drinkable if it had a little more going on. Its price makes it somewhat drinkable too.

Serving type: bottle
