Minnesota

3.18/5  rDev +8.2%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A - Straw colored, 3-finger head but no retention. Died before I could sip.

S - Nothing really stood out; Grains and malted hops. Staple beer smell overall.

T - Surprisingly suited for my tastes. Full-body for an adjunct with mild hops. If it makes sense, this was a "fresh" tasting beer with a clean finish.

M - Very thin and pretty watery, standard for adjuncts but very drinkable. Clean finish with a tint of metal...

O - #2 on my "Shit beer" list. If I need beer and I only have a few bucks, or I need to throw a party, this is one of my go-to beers. Surprisingly satisfactory and rightfully deserves a spot on the top adjuncts.

Oregon

3.51/5  rDev +19.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

12oz : pint glass

Clear, golden yellow with a thick, creamy white head with decent retention.

Fairly typical adjunct lager profile. Balanced flavors of grainy, lightly sweet malt and the faintest grassy-ish hop profile.

Medium body, foamy carbonation.

Nothing special, but for an American Adjunct Lager it certainly isn't a bad beer.

Serving type: can
