look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance- Looks like an adjunct lager. Super carbonated, golden, and slight head produced.

Smell- Not much here besides some grainy notes and slight citrus.

Taste- Grainy malts hit the tongue at first with lots of carbonation. Following that some citrus and bread malt lingers on the tongue.

Feel- Very carbonated. Clean and crisp, almost lager like.

Overall- This essentially seems like a tastier adjunct beer option, and it serves its purpose well. I would definitely get this as a substitute for bmc when out drinking. However, day to day this isn't worth putting in the rotation, especially with better beers within the style available. (79/100)
