Poured from can into a pint glass
Appearance- The beer pours a nice amber-orange color with a big white billowy head. The head has great retention, slowly fading over time to leave a nice level of lace on the sides of the glass.
Smell – The aroma is of cereal and grain with some aromas of caramel sweetness. Mixed with these aromas are some notes of a citrus and herbal hop providing a nice balance for the maltier smells.
Taste – The taste begins with a sweeter caramel and bready flavor up front. Some notes of a citrus hop then come to the tongue as well as a slightly corny and metallic flavor. The off metallic flavor is well hidden by more citrus hop, bready, and caramel flavors as well as by a light earthy hop taste that comes to the tongue more toward the end. While hidden, the metallic flavor is still detected and in the end one is left with a somewhat lightly hopped malt liquor like taste to be left on the tongue.
Mouthfeel -The body of the beer is on the slightly thinner to average side in terms of its creaminess and thickness with a carbonation level that is average to possibly just above average. Both the carbonation and body suit the blend of caramel, bready, and light hop tastes well with both also making for a quite drinkable brew.
Overall – While a step above many, alas it is just a slightly hoped version of more standard American adjunct lagers.

Awesome. This is a really good lager for after a long day at work. The 6 pack is really cheap at $5 and some change. I really like this beer. I will keep this beer in my fridge.I really don't know what else to write because it keeps saying invalid comment length
