I think I was expecting some kind of American macro knockoff (think "Kingfisher"), and was pleasantly surprised. I could be wrong, but this seemed like an all-malt lager to me. It had a bit of sweetness (more than, say, a S.A. Boston Lager), but a nice, full mouthfeel. The appearance was robust; almost cloudy. And the head, while rather thin & fizzy, opened up to reveal a somewhat substantial smell; again, perhaps relative to what I was expecting. Fruity, decent bitterness.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Apperance: Pours a usually lager pale yellow with a 1in head

Smell: Has a light grain smell (like macro lagers), that is sweetened

Taste/Mouthfeel: Taste is of a usuall lager that is accented by sweetness. After taste is of an awful olive like flavor.

Comments: Would NOT buy it again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Pours orange-yellow with a moderately sustaining white head.

Smell's of sweetgrass and honey, a bit of an herbal character as well.

Sweet honey flavors throughout most of the palate. Ends with a decent bitterness.

Medium-full bodied. Seems a bit underattenuated, but not a bad offering.
