Wow my first beer review ever! This one is a roast-y/dry brew in my opinion. The almost watery yet frothy mouthfeel gives me something akin to Guinness, while the overall body has an uplifting cirtus feel. Bready, zesty and full Michelob lager, while being a full flavored lager, is just missing that...something. Mellow and likeable, this might even make a decent session beer. Cheers!
P.s You Sam Adams guys will LOVE this one!

Aroma: Grains, barley, dry grass.

Taste: Grassy dryness, barley, malts.

Mouthfeel: Carbonated, light.

Overall: Better than most cheap pale lagers.
