3.91/5  rDev +16.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A: Pours a rusty golden-amber color. Brilliant clarity. Two fingers of a bone white, wet and creamy head retain very well. A thin, fine-bubbled layer of lacing blankets the glass. High marks for appearance.

S: Sweet corn and a light grainy scent. Bready and doughy yeast. Grassy hops. Fairly straightforward, but actually quite appealing on the nose.

T: Sweet corn, bready and toasted grain. Light caramel. Slight touch of doughy yeast. Zing of herbal hops mid-palate is reminiscent of thyme. Herbal hop character builds and shifts a little. Very clean. Dry cereal grains lead into the finish and close it out nicely along with a fading herbal hop presence.

M: Medium bodied. Nice presence in the mouth; slight firmness, ultra creamy. Moderate scrubbing carbonation. Very smooth.

O: As much as many beer aficionados love to bash BMC products, there's really nothing to hate here. This is a nicely done beer all around. It's straightforward and simple enough, but it doesn't hold back. There's some real malt character and hop taste to it. For once it seems that Coors isn't totally pandering to the lowest common denominator by making a safe but lifeless beer. Batch 19 may be the game changer. This beer can compete.

Notes: The branding seems to be piggybacking on what some craft brands are already doing, namely Brooklyn (see Brooklyn Lager and its pre-prohibition plug) and Pretty Things (the historical recipes series). They also seem to be trying to tap into that rebellious craft beer spirit. Mixing in a little bit of that old-timey throwback feel too. It works though. It'll be interesting to see how this sells down the line and where they go with it.
