2.3/5 rDev +16.8%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5
Poured from 24 oz can into a pint glass
Appearance – Pours a light straw color with a huge white head with big carbonation bubbles entrapped within. The bubbles pop quickly with the head fading very fast to leave only a tiny amount of lacing.
Smell – The smell is light and consists of a light caramel and corn smell with some papery notes mixed within.
Taste – The taste begins with a lighter bready taste with some caramel and corn sweetness. The corm sweetness soon takes over the caramel and mixes with a light lemon citrus flavor that comes to the tongue. At this point the caramel taste that was initially present fades out with the arrival of some papery taste. In the end a lemon and rather odd papery biscuit flavor are left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is quite light with a carbonation level that is just above average. For the style it is quite right as it makes it very easy to drink as it sorta slides past the tongue.
Overall – While for a cheaper brew it is not really the most flavorful or smooth out there. Not offensive, but pretty bland. Possibly good for a cheaper session as it is easy to down, lighter in abv and subtle in taste.

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.
