PBR. Why not?
12 ounce bottle, 20 ounce pub glass.
A - Completely clear, pale yellow. White bubble foam to a one finger head that drops to a capper quick.
S - Clean smell with some grain and lageer yeast.
T - Clean tasting. Some bready/grainiess creeps up. Slight bready aftertaste disappears quickly.
M - Thin with medium carbonation.
D - Easy to drink cold for a quencher or to wash down some grub off the grill.
Notes: Drinkability is there because it's not overcarbonated like light beers and many other adjunct lagers. Rare that I drink this style but when I do it's usually PBR as I find it smoother tasting and easier drinking than most. For the price, it's a good beer to grab some cans and toss in a cooler.

Ok. This is not a top shelf beer. This stuff is cheap, corn-heavy adjunct lager. That being said, it's dang tasty when it's hot out, has a little more ABV than your run of the mill 3.2, and I love that when I bust one out, very few people swarm around to get their hands on one, making it an even better value! Pale yellow in color, It's got enough malty body to separate it from the miller/coors/bud barley pop, while still being easy to drink in quantity. No real discernible hoppiness, especially compared to my standard IPA/DIPA fare. Refreshing, but not a light beer. Taken for what it is, I believe it to be a great beer, when limited to class-comparison. I'm drinking one right now, as it's 85, sunny, and I'm grilling. Boom.
