Served into a frosted mug.

A: Pours a clear dark copper color with a one finger light cream color head with poor retention and lacing.

S: The scent features light caramel...and that's it. Not a bad scent, just very, very lacking.

T: Like the smell, this tastes of light caramel and toffee, without much else. Depth and complexity is nonexistent, but it's crisp and easy drinking.

M: Lighter bodied with high carbonation and not much of a finish. Goes down like water, but not as empty as a regular BMC lager.

O: It is what is, and that is a step above the BMC usuals. This was a decent gateway beer for myself, but I have little interest in revisiting this unless I get it free. Still, it's a solid lawnmower beer.
