Poures a transparent light transparent and quite yellow. Head at first is bursting to 2 inches of white fizz and settling in under 5 seconds to leave a fizzy cola collar.
Plenty of carb rise, resembling champagne.
Aroma is straight up dried straw, corn and grains, with mild chemical perm aroma. Leaving little to be desired.
Taste is better, dry and filled with typical adjunct flavor, although more cereal grains and earthy dry grass hop flavor.
Not my go to style, but a decent entry to it none the less.

2.7/5 rDev -15.6%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75
Appearance: Poured into a pilsener glass (keeping it fancy). Translucent body with effervescence floating towards a fizzy white one finger head that is quickly dissipating.
Aroma: All adjunct and lager yeast with a hint of dried lemon peel. Decently clean but there isn't anything inviting about the smell.
Taste: Really not much there. Flaked corn and subtle airy/grassy hops. It is aggressive on the palate but that has more to do with CO2 than anything else. The finish is not as crisp as I would have expected. At 4.8% ABV it seems like they could have packed a lot more flavor in here.
Mouthfeel: Immediate carbonation attack on the palate. Light in body with average drinkability.
Final Thoughts: Not sure what the point of this beer is. Schell's makes a decent pilsener and this one has nothing on that. It basically tastes like a lighter version of Grain Belt Premium. Would I drink it again? Doubt it.
