3.15/5  rDev +7.1%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4

Bought a sixer of talls to have some cheap shit around for when I'm done stripping wallpaper, painting and doing yardwork. Also to make my mop sauce for BBQ chicken.

Poured about a third of a can into a glass before it went into the sauce. Pale yellow, weak white head with no retention, about par for the course.

Smelled of cereal malts, but just enough barley in there to give it a little bit of a Grape Nuts nose, but not much.

Taste was smooth, with some corn to it and just enough of a trace of hops to avoid the sickly sweet finish.

Mouthfeel was thin and slightly flat. But very drinkable ice cold on a hot day after some physical labor. Fine for a macro - actually pretty good for a macro. This, Simpler Times and 'Gansett would be my go-tos to keep around for that kind of thing.

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
