Pale clear pour with a rocky white head that rapidly fades into a very thin lace. Smells of clean grains, maybe a lil stale funk, no hop aroma. No corn either, which is refreshing. Many cheaper American beers are too corny. Tastes is clean and fairly dry. Theres a bit of mild sweetness, and a sting of hops/high carbonation. After it sits in the glass for a few minutes the carbonation fades and the mouthfeel becomes a little slick. This is far better straight from the can as it won't knock the fizz out of it by pouring it. Drinks easy. A step up from a lot of cheap beers for a still reasonable price.

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.
