Purchased from one of the local quick marts.

A: Clear orange amber with decent head and retention.

S: Malt forward with some sweetness. A bit of hops. Reasonably balanced.

T: Same as the smell but more prominent sweetness. A little bit of grain. Tastes kind of cheap. Not awful though.

M: Smooth with more richness than expected. Decent carbonation.

O: While not a bad beer it's not a really good one either. Definitely a step up from regular Bud though.

Pours a clear copper body with a head that fizzes and fizzles like soda water, without leaving a collar or a trace of lacing. Aromas are faint bud not bad. I mainly get a lightly toasted graininess with maybe a hint of caramel sweetness and a bit of plantain peel. Taste tends toward the sweeter end of the spectrum from start to finish, with toasty malts blending with sugariness on the front and mid-palates before a minerality emerges on the back to make the finish more crisp and memorable. Medium-light body is appropriate for how little flavor it carries, and overall it's an okay beer but seems boring when compared to some of the more established competitors in its style.

12oz bottle served in a pilsner glass.

L - clear "golden amber" lager, small white head that thins leaving specks of lacing.

S - beechwood, nah it's just grainy.

T - sweet and grainy with a very light bitterness on the finish (beechwood finish?).

F - light/medium bodied, very easy to drink.

O - it is what it is.
