12oz bottle poured into a pint glass.

A:Clear golden color with a white head that went away quickly and left minimal lacing.

S: Corn is the dominate scent.

T: Mostly cereal in the taste with some malt upfront.

M: Great mouth feel, high carbonation and easy to drink.

O: This is a really good light lager. It was 93 cents for a 12oz bottle. If I could find this in a case locally it would probably be my go to cheap beer.

I picked this up at Giant enjoyed chilled from the 12oz brown bottle in a pils glass.

The color is a very pale and clear golden with visible carbonation rapidly ascending to a eggshell cap with fine bead and lace sticks well, the retention is decent. The smell is sweet, light and pretty mild yet not off or offensive, just faint. The feel is very seltzery and high in carbonation with some mild sweetness and clean overall feel with dry finish.

The flavor is not bad yet it does lack any real resemblance to beer since you basically get the fizziness yet a light sweetness is present on the palate with very light fruity tinge. The overall impression is nothing special to enjoy or appreciate even in the realm of light beers -it is basically a palate cleanser, would pair well with extremely spicy wings or greasy fair-food maybe.
