24oz can poured into a tulip. Canned July 24th 2013.

A: Pours a clear pale yellow with a dense clean white head. Average amount of visible carbonation. Leaves a decent lacing behind.

S: Light malting, has the american adjust lager sweetness to it but not very strong.

T: Hardly has any flavor. Hints of malts as well as water. If you can taste the water I'm not sure thats a good beer. Bit of sweetness to it.

M: Light body, with a lot of carbonation. Supposed to be an easy drinker and I think it comes through in that regard.

Overall tough to sit down and rate a style like this. With such a light body and alcohol content the flavors are subtle.

purchased a 24 oz can for .99 at Wegmans on 4/25/13.

poured from a can into a mug, served at fridge temp.

lemon yellow with a 1 finger white head that leaves almost no lacing.

aroma: standard adjunct hops and yeast.

mouthfeel: surprisingly good.

taste: not a lot of flavor, but the little bit is decent.

notes: really not bad, easy to drink. Low abv makes this a lawnmower's session beer.

I drank a couple of these in a place where I shouldnt've been, served by a waitress who called me 'honey' and 'sweetheart'. I thought that I was going to get a Genny Cream Ale, but I went with it. 12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A- So light in yellow-straw color that I thought it had a hint of greenish hue. It did pour a decent head and even left some spotty lacing.

S- Clean the litter box, please!

T- Better than the smell. Some corn sweetness, a touch of maltiness (I think).

M- Quite light with a unpleasantly sour finish.

O- I've had worse, so I may even cross paths with this again. What the heck.
