look: 2 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1 | overall: 2

Appearance
Poured from a pretty blue bottle, which successfully hides the "watered-down apple juice" look. It almost reminds me of apple wine mixed with carbonated water, a popular drink in Frankfurt, Germany. The complete lack of head completes the picture.

Smell
Typical macro-lager smell: corn, grains, and canned mushrooms. Nothing else to smell here, move along.

Taste
There is a slight hint of cheap beer up front, then a sweetness reminiscent of (again) apple juice, a split-second of slight bitterness, and then nothing. One of the most forgettable and un-beery taste profile's I've ever tried. But it lacks the urine-flavor many BMCs tend to have. That's good, right? Right?

Mouthfeel
I honestly can't stop comparing this to watered down apple juice. If someone told me that this was in fact 75% carbonated water and 25% apple juice, I'd believe it in a heartbeat.

Overall
Imagine Keystone Light, with a hint of apple juice and water from a can of canned corn. It's fizzy, forgettable, forthright fraudulent. This doesn't even go well with pizza.
