2.81/5 rDev -4.4%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75
A 473ml can with a BB of March 2014. ABV is stated as 4.6%. Picked up a little while back as a 6-pack from a B&M store. 'Nature's choicest products provide its prized flavour' - oh yes.
Poured into a tulip pint glass. A clear golden colour with faint floating sediment and medium carbonation. Forms a large head of creamy white foam that lasts for a while before subsiding to a patchy surface layer. Aroma of faint malt with hints of sweet grain, stewed leaves and a whiff of overdone veg. Bland.
Tastes of ultra-light malt with a mild, dry finish. Notes of weak grain, faint stewed leaves and a twinge of overcooked veggies. Highly attenuated with little bitterness to speak of - a crisp dryness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and tingly, with effervescent carbonation and a thin, watery body that is about par for the style. Slightly astringent, followed by an aftertaste of faint stewed leaves and a whisper of malt.
Meh - characterless and watery. Looks about right, while the aroma and flavour are virtually absent. Average body for a macro. I'll damn it with faint praise and state that there weren't any obvious off-notes or flaws; it's just weak as hell. Thirst-quenching but no need to hunt it down.

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.
