Many years ago, on a hill far above a certain lake, this was my Saturday night special treat. I just drank a can for auld lang syne. Flat, smooth, "creamy", but it was much better fifty years ago, when I had more hair, less fat, fewer wrinkles and less money. Might be a good foil for a boilermaker.

12 oz can, poured into a shaker pint at approximately 40 degrees F.

A: Pours a crystalline-clear pale yellow with a two-finger white head that quickly vanishes. Looks like watered-down apple cider in the glass. Bubbles stream from the bottom relentlessly.

S: No real aroma to speak of, just some vague grain malt and grassy-fruity hop odors.

T: See the "Smell" section above. A mouthful of of slightly-hopped grains, with vague hints of grass and apple.

M: Actually slightly creamy, with lively carbonation.

O: Not a bad go for a regional macro adjunct, especially for the price point of about $0.50 per 12 oz can. As has been mentioned by other reviewers, this is a fantastic beer to bring to a party, music festival, or similar event. If you're looking for an amazing beer experience, then by all means, pass on by. For what it is, however, this is decent.
