2.9/5 rDev +1.8%
I had the version brewed specifically for the Baltimore Orioles in ther tall boy.
Clear bright gold in color, it looks like any adjunct I've ever had, though not as pale as some. The white head is small, frothy, and moderately lasting. Left on top of the beer for most of the duration is a foam that leaves some spotting.
There are some fruity esters in the aroma with some yeast and grains as well as an odd, softer sort of sweetness along with green apple skin. Pale malts make a decent base.
The flavor has a bit more corny husk, but otherwise the pale malts, grains, and fruity esters are all here. There seems to be some diacetyl, and it's a little too strongly vegetal.
The feel is okay; it's got the crispness and is reasonably clean in its appropriately light body, without too much slickness threatening.

3.03/5 rDev +6.3%
A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some golden yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall creamy bright white head that slowly reduces to a thick film covering the entire surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light to moderate amounts of lacing are observed.
S: Moderate aromas of lightly sweet corn adjuncts with just the faintest hints of grassy hops.
T: Upfront there is a moderate of slightly sweet corn adjunct malts with just a touch of light fruit sweetness as well (peach + apple). Very light hints of grassy hops which impart a barely perceptible bitterness. Overall, lightly sweet.
M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Lightly creamy.
O: Easy to drink and definitely sessionable - better than most of the other BMC products as it does not taste of preservatives.
