3.45/5  rDev +17.3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Translucent golden straw. Very thin white head. Didn't expect that to stick around.

Aroma: Not much in the nose. A little bit corn or adjunct. Really not much happening in the aroma department.

Taste: Much better than the aroma, though still watery. There is corn in there but also some sweet malt in the middle of the palate. Definitely not blowing me away, tastes like most macro-lagers.

Mouthfeel: Possibly it's best attribute. Good level of carbonation and highly drinkable. Smooth finish.

Final Thoughts: Meh. Basically a slightly above average macro-lager that has some sort of cult following.

Serving type: can

3.2/5  rDev +8.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

The beer is light golden and transparent with a half inch of pure white head. Aromas of grain, bread, corn, adjuncts. Not as sweet and off putting as the BMC highly marketed crap that is seemingly everywhere. Grainy with some cereal-like character. Clean and refreshing. Basically, exactly what you would expect from a decent adjunct lager. Ok.

Serving type: on-tap
