Poured into a 14oz Sam Adams glass.
I bought this beer blind in a make-your-own-six-pack deal, with no idea of even the style. Upon opening the bottle, the pleasant aroma hit me right away - straw, a bit of metallicity, and a surprising amount of light malt. Upon pouring, I noticed that it has a wonderful golden color but is easily the most transparent beer I have ever seen - Sprite is more opaque. Still, it has a nice roughly 1" head to it, and plenty of carbonation. This is what Bud Light wishes it looked like.
The taste isn't terribly complex, but it's just the right level of strength for what it does - quite lemony, with just enough body to not be off and a just-malty-enough finish. The hop bite is more of a playful nip, and the focus is on the smooth drinkability moreso than anything remotely approaching complexity. Sadly, the mouthfeel and aftertaste are a bit of a letdown, ending up feeling and tasting starchy.
Overall, if I lived in the area this stuff comes from, this would be the beer I'd want to bring with me in a cooler to go out camping or fishing rather than to drink at home or try and pair with anything. It's like baby bear's porridge: not too much of anything, not too little, it's juuust right... But in the end it's still just porridge.

Besides Old Style, I always have at least one of these when I'm Chicago. They say "Don't Judge a Beer By the Label"! I did, and that's what struck my fancy on this one. Very easy drinking, and especially good in Summer. For a micro/craft brewery specializing in pale ales, they did a very good job on this pale lager.
