A:
Pours crystal clear watery straw color with a surprisingly big white head that eventually settles to a fat film and then a middling one. Decent retention; barely any lacing.

S:
Funky (in the sense of 'weird') and grassy. Oats, green apple, grass. Meh.

T:
Level, smooth drinking. Cereals, stanky European hops, bit of acetaldehyde (I feel), 'mineraliness'.

M:
Light bodied with ample carbonation and a quick dry finish. Very easy drinking. Fine for what it is.

O:
Okay 'cheap' beer.
Drinks easy and quenches your thirst. It is by no means anything special, pretty, or delicious, but it is good after working in the sun. Not the best, mot the worst. Your best option is probably getting it real cold and drinking it from the can with a coozy if you've got one.

Poured into a pilsner a clear dull light to medium golden with a pretty well defined white head that left a few broken chunks of lace as it settled pretty quickly.Sweeter aromas with a mild crispness,more like a sweet cereal aroma more than anything.The sweet cereal grain notes are what you get mainly on the palate with just a light drying leafy hop note in the finish.Eh, pretty average but it goes well with food and is pretty drinkable in an average kind of way.

11.2-oz bottle into Pilsner glass

A - very pale yellow (like a white wine), crystal-clear body; several fingers of pure white foam; small amount of visible carbonation

S - grass, grains, slight note of spice

T - grains, grassy hops, hop spice, slight floral notes; pretty dry, especially into the finish

M - light body with a slight stickiness, moderate carbonation, fairly dry, refreshing

O - a run-of-the-mill pils

This beer is amazing in its ability to be neither great, nor bad. It's middle of the road, to the extreme. Imagine German Bud Light. Except with more mild/bitter hops, maybe saaz? Better dollar for dollar than BMC. apparently abv is 4.9, but seems lower as I just finished a sixxer and am not too buzzed.

Just tried this because it was available at Aldis on my grocery run and I had never tried it. Initially refreshing, nice and light. The aftertaste is a bit strange, almost soapy. I think the appearance was perfectly fine. Poured into a glass the head was light and foamy, not dense. Nothing to write home about but perfectly acceptable.
