Tasty, well balanced beer with good hops and malt flavor. Mouthfeel is pretty good, very drinkable. Overall, very good for a "mass-market craft beer", a clear step above a macro brew. Good value and worth drinking if you are a fan of malty beers.

16 oz can , $1 at Krogers, served in a pint glass.

Pours clear amber with lots of visible carbonation and a large head that soon reduces to a durable top coat.

Aroma: Grassy/earthy hops with a metallic edge over some bready malts. Not bad but not appealing. The flavor is better. Mildly bitter.
Feel: initially over carbonated, this soon burns off leaving a decent feel with a medium-light body.

O: thirst-quenching lawnmower beer,

Appearance - Other than little to no head and carbonation, which is preferred by us, it is absolute perfect color and consistency when seen in the glass. Don't drink out of bottle.

Smell no outstanding smells, offensive or otherwise. I smell sweeteend beer.

Taste - Perfectly crisp, slightly too sweet for me but not for my wife. Could drink multiples.

Mouth feel - light for a lager - goes down easy - maybe one dimensional, can be gulped.
Overall

Light crisp refreshing, goes down easy. Not imposing. very tasty - would buy again.

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

A clear amber body sits under a fizzy off-white head. It recedes to minimal film, and little or no lacing is present. The brew smells faintly sweet of caramel malts. An even fainter hop presence is noted. The beer tastes sweet with grains and malts, and slightly metallic. *ding ding ding* There's your macro sign. Mouthfeel is light.

Overall, I could session this all day because of it's lightness. It's a macro amber, that's that.

A dark amber beer usually a good sign of rich taste in amber beers, Unfortunately not so in this case only a strong bitter after taste. A thick foam head produced when poured into frosted mug The label claims it is a gold medal award winner it definitely does live up to that promise.
