Pours a clear golden color with a short lived white head. Nose is fairly typical macro lager aroma of sweet grain/cereal, light esters, and minimal hops. A slight corn note is present. The flavor is sweet grain, minimal biscuit qualities, and no hops to speak of. A touch watery, some yeast and mild fruit esters. That's pretty much it. Nothing wrong with it, just nothing all that great about it.

Cool bottle. Interesting brew. Pours an amber lager with a bit of white bubbles here and there. Nose is caramel, sugar substitutes, some banana, a little grain - nice nose. Flavor is nice and smooth lager - reminds me of a munich helles and is slightly sweet and woody. Easy drinking. Medium bodied with lower carb and a nice semi slick finish. A surprise from a giant - a really drinkable beer. I would order this occasionally.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours out a lightly hazed, honey-hued body with nearly two fingers worth of rich foam that fades but never disappears.

Smell: Honey accents ahead of the pale maltiness trailed by notes of leafy green, citrusy, spicy hops.

Taste: Honey-brushed maltiness with a thin hint of lightly toasted grain. Moderately sweet throughout. Lemony, leafy, herbal hops with ample bitterness to balance it out, or so I thought, as the sweetness makes a last-minute rebound before the finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-light body. Medium carbonation.

Overall: It'll do in a pinch!

This one was crystal clear and had a brownish/golden hue to it, mild carbonation and it was topped off with an off white head that quickly thinned out into a small congregation of bubbles. It did have some mild lacing. Overall, this beer looked nice and inviting. The aroma was a bit thin, some roasted wheat mixed in with roasted hops came through, but I couldn’t pick up much else. The taste was really good, smooth throughout and a mild hops flavor dominated the beer, some mild citrus flavors like orange zest are present. Bitter all around but the bitterness isn’t overwhelming. The aftertaste has a mild hoppy and alcohol taste but it’s easy to swallow. By the way, this beer has a light-to-medium mouth feel. Overall not bad, I personally wouldn’t buy this one on a regular basis, but I do have to say you’ve got to try this one.

Sampled on June 29, 2012 at The Tap Sports Bar and Grill in Belmont, New Hampshire. The pour is golden to pale yellow with a small white fizzy head that settles down. The aroma highlights include pale malts, a slight hop note that is both clean and crisp, but little in the way of adjuncts. The body is light to medium. The taste was of grain malts with moderate bitterness at the end. Compared to other adjuncts this was an improvement. I had to drive a ways to find it in my area. It tasted better than other standard Coors products but was nothing extraordinary.

Bought in a mixed six pack chilled at a grocer and poured chilled into a Perfect Pint.

A=Very nice...darker golden amber color with ample white frothy head.

S=Faint bread smell with hint of corn and sweetness.

T=Nice malt presence with the first sip...flavor is present, but a bit lighter than I anticipated. A hint of hops...I am thinking that this might be an all-malt, or very close to it, but there is a hint of sweetness.

M=Excellent body with just the right amount (medium-light) carbonation.

O=I have another bottle to try, but, after first sample, I would definitely consider again. I prefer the robustness of an amber a bit more, but this would be my first choice if buying a lager for friends.

3/13 update...had served on tap at a local bar...was not nearly as good as I remembered it...I would have given it a 3 this time, so I am changing my taste to the average, or 3.5.
