look: 4 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Pale golden color....begins with rich aromas of caramel apple pie, roasted nuts, brown sugar, and indian spices..then deeper in delicate aromas of orange honey, and a herbed flat bread-like malt which is followed by aroma's of burning cigar embers, peat, and honey roasted nuts....provides a bold round entry to a dryish full body and lingering tobacco, herbal moss, and a honeyed cracker fade with a deft touch of astringent citrus hops.

The taste is rich, velvety and smooth..mildly sweet with chocolate covered espresso accents..Also smoked pepper, baked cherry and rye toast notes evident in abundance with smaller notes of soda noodles, lime starfruit candy, light mollasses, and dried citrus.

Finishes with a prickly pepper and roasted grain-accented fade.

Otherwise pretty unmemorable.

12 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer quickly. It is a golden straw yellow with great clarity and bubbles seen coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Sweet cereal grains and grassy hops. Very standard.

Taste: Really not much going on here. Sweet and generic. Can't really decide if it's cereal or grain.

Mouthfeel: Smooth, somewhat enjoyable, lacking flavor, medium carbonation, medium bodied, and too easy to drink.

Overall: Not sure if I'll be getting this one again. Extremely generic, but wasn't expecting much by the style of this beer. Gone in 4 sips and not too enjoyable.

Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light gold color, with a large white head that fades quickly and leaves a spotty lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains grain, light caramelized malts and a very faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with a thin malt character and flavors of grain and adjuncts. The hops presence is extremely mild but there is some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little crisp and a little smooth, light body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Not very flavorful, goes down easily, not too filling, mild kick, good rep of a lackluster style. There are certainly several worse beers in the style that I’ve had compared to this one. For an inexpensive swill beer it’s not a bad choice.

More cans for the collection, luckily I found a couple singles in the bargain bin.
Clear, yellow color, little head that was instantly gone and therefore no lace.
Slightly sour, wet vegetable smell. Slightly sweet flavor to start then taken over by cooked vegetable. Dryish finish but still left sticky coating on the tongue. Light mouthfeel, thin and fizzy. They sell a ton of it, so people must like the buck a can price.

Not for me, but the price is right and it keeps selling to someone.
