$4.99/6 pack. Eating a late night hamburger, thought it could use a Lager. Let's crack it open!

Serving style : 12 oz bottle complete with mermaid #3, poured for appearance.

Appearance (3.5) : Sunny golden body, fairly transparent, with a nice rich-looking 2 finger head.

Smell (3.75) : Sweet honey-tinged malts, fresh oats and barley, some corn on the cob. This is quite certainly a step above the average american adjunct lager smell.

Taste (3.75) : Tastes a bit like it smells. I love the corn on the cob flavor with the oaty body. Smooth and refreshing. Not a whole lot of off-notes. Wheaty. This beer isn't half bad. Some hop bitterness at the end, just a hint of diacetyl, with a cascading dry finish.

Mouthfeel (3.5) : Pleasantly carbonated, light bodied, and smooth. Semi-dry finish. I do like this one, I do.

Overall (3.68) : For a refreshing lager this beer hits the spot and keeps the flavor alive. It's crisp, clean, and has notes of wheat, oat, barley, and corn on the cob. I can't think of a better lager off the top of my head, although I'm sure they're out there.

Typical lager straw yellow color, medium carbonation; ordinary domestic mass produced lager taste, but not as acidic, and without a lingering aftertaste. Nothing extraordinary and that's the problem in a nut shell.

Kudos for the drone delivery system, which made headlines.
