A buddy of mine brought this over for an evening BBQ.

I drank it out of the bottle the way I would any lager while I'm standing over my grill. In the vein of summertime beers I think this one holds its own. I'd put it on par with Fat Tire or Dos X. If you're filling a cooler with something to drink at the lake or a BBQ you could do a lot worse than Third Shift.

Appearance: Amber and translucent--what you'd expect for this type of beer
Smell: A pleasant sour maltiness
Taste: Solid lager taste, not amazing but very drinkable.
Mouthfeel: This is a very wet beer. There's not much body to it at all. When you're chugging it to rinse a jalepeno popper out of your mouth though, that's a good thing.

I'd buy this for a party where I needed low-cost but tasty beverage options for a crowd.

Another weak beer from one of the big boys who's afraid to offend anyone.

While the quality is excellent, this beer has no character or meaningful attributes.

I could drink this again if offered; however, I would never order this beer.

Also, I have to laugh at their marketing. How stupid do they think we are?...well

2.88/5  rDev -4.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: light amber/gold in color, 1/4 inch head, clear, moderate carbonation

Smell: light toasted malt

Taste: toasted malt and caramel

Mouthfeel: light bodied-watery, moderate carbonation, sweet

Overall: Average to below average for the style. Like a watered down version of a decent Vienna lager. Not so bad that I would pass this up at a party, but I would be searching the coolers for anything else available.

Serving type: on-tap
