Tennessee

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Had on tap at Rendezvous in Memphis.

Arrived looking like a typical American lager; crystal clear pale yellow with almost no head.

The aroma wasn't much, a little bit of hay and grassy hops were all I could pick up.

The flavor had more in the way of breadyness. Hops are nearly nonexistent. Just the lightest in the way of bitterness with no real hop flavor.

Overall, a good beer to wash down barbecue with but that's about it. Not something I would really seek out.

Serving type: on-tap

North Carolina

3.08/5  rDev +15.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A - golden yellow with a faint layer of bubbly, white head that fades quickly

S - sweet and grainy

T - faintly bready, grainy, sweet corn, mildly bitter finish

M - light bodied, crisp, a bit over carbonated

Not an awful beer. As far as macros goes this is better than most. It is grainy and sweet but it does have a bit of hop character in the finish. Overall, it's definitely one of the better macros.
