look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

A clear golden colored body with a lot of rising bubbles. A white fizzy head disappears quickly. No lacing.

The aroma is slightly metallic, with notes of corn and cereal grains.

Thankfully, the taste is slightly better than the aroma. Slightly metallic, maybe a hint of corn adjuncts. Not much else.

Mouthfeel is watery and carbonated.

Overall, I rated this in comparison with other adjunct lagers, and quite frankly this beer tastes as clean and refreshing as all the others at a cheaper price. This will be my cheap go-to beer when needed.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.75

Appearance
Large fluffy white head. Decent retention. Some lacing. Clear, light golden body. Active carbonation.

Smell
Mild. Sweet malt. Light floral hops.

Taste
Stale corn and malt. Not as sweet as expected. Dry and stale.

Mouthfeel
Body is somewhere between light and medium. Dry stale finish lingers. Strong carbonation.

Overall
Maybe this beer was not stored properly or was abused somehow? I was expecting more. This beer is pretty smooth. The appearance and aroma are inviting. But it just doesn't taste that good.
