look: 4.25 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

Pours a brilliant golden brown with a frothy one inch ivory head that dissipates very slowly, leaving thick lacing.

Corn and grain dominate the aroma, with a funky tangy note and subtle earthy hops rounding things out.

Flavor is grainy, with nutty, lightly toasted malt forming the backbone. The tang is present, but more subdued than in the aroma. Becomes cardboard-like as it warms.

Body is moderate, with moderate carbonation and a bit of grainy astringency.

It actually has malt flavor. The graininess and tang are somewhat offputting.

A-pours a soft yellow
with sudsy head with average retention
S-corn/grains, hint of grassy hops
T-more adjunct corn flavor with a bit of sweet grain quickly vut off by grassy hop bitterness
M-light bodied
O-not bad coming from coors, more flavor than the traditional adjunct lager and very drinkable. I wouldnt want it all the time but certainly beats the even more bland macros out there

clear golden color white half finger head. grainy hay like nose. tastes is dry biscuit, leafy hop, grainy mouthful, a bit of acidity, pretty big body for a smaller beer, not as clean as expected with a bit of flavor but nothing crazy. boring with some rough edges. feels nice in the mouth and has more flavor than your typical lager but it's bad example of a great lager in my opinion.

Poured from an "old-timey" looking bottle into a standard pint glass.
Clear antique gold in color, with a short, airy head of white foam.
Aroma-Faint pale malt
Taste-Right off-the-bat off-putting metallic note, pale malt. A couple of German specialty hops are listed on the bottle, but my taste buds are having a hard time finding their hiding place. Maybe Batch 20 will be better. Here's hoping.

Beautiful, clear gold, with a lasting finger of white fluff.

A slightly sour yeast aroma, with spicy and floral hop lightly sharing the bouquet with some sweet grain.

It tastes much better than the smell prepared me for, nice yeast and grainy sweet to start, balanced very well by the hops that come on at the end of the sip to leave a pleasant spice and floral taste. Balanced and clean. Nice.

Refreshing medium carb., easy drinking, with a clean and tasty finish.

Wish I could have had this available back in the day, tasty lager beer that is a cut above the regular BMC fare.
