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.
