Kentucky

3/5  rDev +2%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 4 | overall: 3

I saw that this did a lot better on here than I would have anticipated so I decided to experiment. At $6.79 a 12 pack how could you go wrong?

Good news is it's not as bad as I thought. Bad news is, it's still pretty bad.

A - nothing special - looks like yellow cheap beer from my college days

S - Honestly, nothing really positive to say here with the smell.

T - Taste is very malty but not terrible.

M - Honestly, this is where the beer does well. The mouthfeel has a carbonation that pops

D - I have to say that I could see myself drinking this beer during the summer in a session but I'm going to put the rest of this 12 pack on hold for now...

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.
