Misc.: Born date of April 19, 2013, which is 126 days from today (the can says the freshest taste is within 110 days)
Poured a golden urine clear color with three fingers of light-white head. Decent amount of bubbles coming up from the bottom. Very little lacing along the sides of the glass. Below average retention.
Smelled caramel, honey, cereal, grass, bread and corn. Not too bad for the style.
Tasted a bit like the nose, but not quite as flavorful. Got honey, some fruits (banana, apple and kiwi), caramel, corn and grass.
Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt finish. Somewhat refreshing.
I have to say, not too bad for the style. One of the better American Adjunct Lagers I’ve had and much better than what I remember from when I was drinking this in high school and college.

Pours a straw gold with brilliant clarity. A soapy white head that fell fast and no real lace just a few spots. Nose is light corn and light grain. Thin and a only a hint of green apple and some corn sweetness. Hops are floral and light and go a bit grassy as the beer warms. Taste is clean and has only a mild hint of green apple, and DMS. NO diacetyl and this finishes with a bit of grass and hop bitter. No real fruitiness and a crisp carbonation. Balance between malt and hops was practically even and only during warming did the hops emerge. There was a touch of light acidity in the finish and this finished mostly dry but with a touch of sugary taste at the very end. Mouthfeel is thin and pleasant and a bit watery.
It's got less of an apple taste than some other beers I have rated but a thinner body overall. The DMS was in acceptable limits and this beer had only a bit of sourness to creep on to the palate as it warmed.
Style notes - the standard lager can have little to no malt aroma, fast fallihg head, light body from the use of adjunct and DMS is allowed in low levels. The dms did creep on to the palate in sufficient amounts to keep from wanting another one of these. BUT the green apple sweetness was less than some other beers like molson canadian an d even heineken so I teetered between 2.75 and 3.0 for a taste rating. I gave it the lower rating because I do nto want another.
