2.55/5  rDev -16.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Best part of the beer is the appearance, dark cedar color. From a distance, when I saw pitchers of this at a wedding, I had hoped for a craft beer given the dark color. Alas it was only Killian's.

The beer smells mildly of malt and of the bitterness (not hop bitterness) you normally find in BMC beers.

Taste is very light, mildly carbonated, not nearly as malty as the color would suggest. I also got a strong metallic tang in the beer, not sure if that is inherent to the beer or a byproduct of the keg...

Mouthfeel is very light, smooth going down. Ultimately for as light as the beer is, I don't find it very drinkable, because all it does is make me want to find something with more flavor and body to it.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 4

12 oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A - Reddish tea. One inch head leaves a foam the entire duration. Good lacing throughout.

S - Sweet malts and barley with some hops.

T - Sweet malts and hops dominate with a clean finish.

M - Medium, a little creamy.

O - Damn good beer. I'll buy it whenever it's on sale (or not).
