Tried this one last week while landscaping at my girlfriends parents house.
Poured into a pint glass. It looks like you would expect it to, clear and brown, only reddish when held into the sun. A soft, half finger of off white colored head sits on top with terrible retention and leaves behind no lacing. A lively carbonation keeps things moving.
The aroma is...Grain Belt? I swear, in a blind smelling test I don't know if I could tell the difference. Ok, maybe this one is slightly more malty, and slightly sweeter? I was expecting some more hops or something, but meh.
The taste is the same as Grain Belt also. I get corn and other adjuncts. Sweet and malty, just a little maltier than Grain Belt.
Mouthfeel is thin and crisp, with a high carbonation. Drinkability is probably it's best quality, as this was rather refreshing and easy drinking on a hot, spring day filled with lots of heavy lifting and manual labor.
Was expecting something a little different at first, but the more I thought about it, this is pretty much what I should have expected. Not bad, but nothing special.
