Hrm.... this wasn't bad? Grassy, grains, sweet corn and bread.

I don't know much about this style, but I found the beer crisp and refreshing and not at all complicated. Better then BMC, not expensive, would make a decent session/party beer. The flavor is pretty light, I mean it probably doesn't even need to be poured in a glass.

Decent golden color, clear, thick white head that clings to the glass.

Strong sweet malt aroma with some bready notes and a touch of sulfer. The hops balance nicely.

The flavor is much the same as the aroma with a good malt complexity that accents the breadiness. The hopping is pleasant, but feels a bit overdone and lingers a bit to the finish.

Overall, this one is very drinkable and I would definitely buy it again.

Sampled a 12-ounce bottle back on 10/25/13. Chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler. Poured into a pilsner glass.

Pours a lighter amber in color with a 2+-finger white head. Left good lacing with each sip. The aroma is of malty grain with a hint of citrus. The taste was sweeter than the aroma with perfect carbonation. The flavors of caramel malts and grains with a hint of dark fruit and citrus. Very surprised at a good taste this type of brew was. Went down smooth and easy.
