look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

11.2oz bottle poured into pilsener glass. *Editing based on notes from another session.

A: A rich mahogany color that's a bit too transparent for my liking. A fluffy beige head that lasts for about two minutes before it completely fades away. The lacing that remains varies from bottle to bottle, strangely. My first bottle left little-to-no lacing, while this most recent bottle has left moderate amounts of lacing all down the glass.

S: The nose is mostly roasted malts with the slightest hints of molasses. Not much going on otherwise. This has remained consistent, for the most part, though I did detect an ever-so-slight hint of hop bitterness this time around.

T: I've noticed a lot of people speaking poorly of the flavor here. I, personally, found this to be fairly enjoyable. Lots of roasted malt flavor, with a light malted milk chocolate sweetness that follows, finishing with a touch of hop bitterness. The aftertaste shows signs of alcoholic presence, which I found strange for a brew with such a low ABV. While there's nothing extraordinary in this category, I didn't find the flavor to be unenjoyable or offensive to any extent.

M: A bit thin in the mouth, definitely light bodied. Crisp carbonation provides a nice bite without coming off too harsh—an overall smooth feel throughout. Don't go looking for something big here, because you won't find it. This definitely falls into the "sessionable" category. A friend of mine described this as "soda-like," but I feel as though he's being a bit dramatic.

O: I'm not going to lie, my first time around I wasn't impressed by this by any means. I wasn't offended or disgusted by it, but it lacked a certain "wow factor." My second time around with this brew, I'm finding myself to be more and more impressed by it. And by "impressed" I mean, "Wow. For such a small price tag, this beer is exceptionally doable." My friend and I purchased a 24-case of this brew for about $23 and some change. To give an idea, it's about $21 for a 24-case of Miller Lite here. While this is certainly not an exceptional brew, I can honestly say that I haven't found ANYTHING that can rival this for its price range. If you're looking for something drinkable on very limited funds, give this one a shot. I know that I'll be revisiting this one for sure when I need something cheap to bring to a party.

Note: For some reason, I found myself enjoying this a lot more straight out of the bottle, as opposed to poured in a glass.
