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.
