A: The beer is clear yellow in color and has a moderate amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down but consistently left a short head covering the surface and some lacing down the sides of the glass.
S: The aroma is a little sweet and has flavors of corn adjuncts along with hints of biscuit malts.
T: Like the smell, the taste has flavors of corn along with notes of biscuit and bready malts. There's no bitterness and no skunk is detectable, despite the beer coming in a green bottle.
M: It feels a bit shy of being medium-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of smoothness and carbonation.
O: This beer is very easy to drink and is a decent representation of the style. I was a little skeptical of this beer coming in a green 7 oz. bottle but was pleasantly surprised it wasn't really that bad.

7oz green bottle
A - golden with a thinner, white head that dissipated to almost nothing very quickly
S - biscuity, fruity, corn, yeast
T - fruity, apple, grape, corn, biscuit, mild grassy hop,
M - thinner but creamy, moderate carbonation, finishes semi-dry
O - Nice fruitiness and very refreshing; nice to have in the fridge for my wife who likes 7oz beers...

Poured from a 7oz bottle into a Sam hybrid glass.

A: Straw. Minimal head, but that might have been due to the pour.

S: Sweet adjunct. Corn.

T: It has an adjunct sweetness that finishes dry.

M: Nice medium body with appropriately medium-high carbonation.

O: A Cincinnati classic that I had to revisit in a more serious light. It's not bad for the style - finishes dry like it's light lager brethren, but with more sweetness up front, yet lacks the sugar-sweetness of a malt liquor (and thankfully the undercurrent of ethanol). This is an light beer that is simple but unoffensive.
