There is not a whole lot to say about this beer. Cost is appropriate. And of course expected results are met. I mean, really, this is a simple beer. Clean of any technical flaws for sure. Just not memorable. Great for summer sun re-hydration or kayaking trips.

Appearance: Clear light golden body, topped by a modest, coarse whit head, which gradually fades to nothingness. Stick, patchy lacing adorns the glass walls. The carbonation is very slight, with only an occasional bubble rising to the surface.

Aroma: Lightly sweet pale malt, a mineral water note, and restrained grassy hops comprise the aroma.

Taste: Opens with clean, but quite restrained pale malt, and a weak flourish of hops, which hint at herbal bitterness. As the taste progresses, the mineral quality of the water seems to increase slightly, and there is a slight hint of alcohol. Finishes with a restrained hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, fairly pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Plain and inoffensive a decent value at typical retail prices.

Presentation: packaged in a sixteen-ounce aluminum can, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Sourcing: Purchased at Spec's in Texas for $4.79 for a six-pack of sixteen-ounce cans, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Spotted this tap handle buried between a whole bunch of BMCs, let's try something I haven't had before, from the land of sky blue waters...

Golden-yellow color with a little bit of white foam. Suprisingly nice coating of lacing, then down to a ring of foam, then gone. Lots of clean grain smell, not much noticeable adjunct vegetable/corn smell. Grainy flavor with some mild hops in the finish. Good for the style.
Light flavor, but still a nice suprise.

Appearance: The beer poured a clear, golden yellow with a nice frothy white head which dissipated quickly. No lacing present.

Smell: Sweet grain aroma with a metallic tinge to it.

Taste: Very crisp, clean and refreshing brew. Slight lemony sent from hint of hops. Slight grain flavor with a nice sweetness from the malt accompanied by a creamed corn flavor.

Mouthfeel: Thin body with high carbonation.

Overall: Perfect beer for the summer. As far as adjunct grain beers go this one is one of the best. As with most cheap lagers I recommend ice cold and in a can.

Beer pours a light yellow from the can with a light head a good carbonation. Smell is that of grain and a hint of corn. Taste is clean and crisp. Finish is pretty smooth with some carbonation. This is a good drinkable macro style beer. At least my money goes to non BMC owned or controlled brewery. This is another beer from the past I used to enjoy.

From the land of sky blue waters....

Sulfur and soft malt and some lingering yeast character.
Brilliantly clear very pale straw. Head is very white and fizzy sounding. Settles out rather quickly.
Shoot of sweet corn flavor up front, but a soft feel throughout. Pale malt is very soft and dominated by the adjunct. Mild, but noticeable dryness on the finish and it lingers. Full carbonation. Not much hopping.
Very easy drinking. A little too sweet for my tastes and a bit of strong on the adjuncts. I suppose it hits style fairly well. Can do for a lawnmower beer.
