Has a strong tastes of grains, very smooth. Not too full in the mouth. The there is little aftertaste. It finishes smoothly. It's a well rounded quality beer. It only lacks on the potency of the hops, and the fullness in the mouth. I would highly recommend this beer. I believe it's one of the best mass produced American beers.
