poured from a bottle to a pint glass.
A: Extremely clear faint yellow, with a slightly frothy head that dissipates after about 30 seconds with some small lacing clinging for dear life on the edges of the glass.
S: nothing much to speak of, a hint of floral adjuncts, maybe some corn. All in all it's very faint.
T: Smooth, watery, a few notes of lager citrus sweetness, and a slight hint of metallic. Very inoffensive flavors, but on the flip side nothing to really hold you attention.
M: Extremely smooth, probably one of the best parts of this beer.
D: Upfront, it really isn't much to speak of, nothing jumps out or draws you to it, that being said it's not terrible and is a good doppelganger to the american macro's. All in All you can knock back a plenty of these, I'd drink again.

11.5 fl oz brown glass bottle with generic label and a branded twist-off pressure cap acquired a part of a 6 pack at my local corner mart and served into an Avery stem-tulip in low altitude Austin, Texas. Reviewed live as a pilsener.
Served cold - straight from me fridge. Side-poured with standard vigor as no carbonation issues are anticipated.
A: No bubble show forms as it's poured.
Pours a one finger wide head of white colour. Mediocre complexion and consistency. Subpar creaminess and frothiness. No lacing clings to the sides of the glass as the head recedes. Head retention is average - about 2 minutes.
Body colour is a transparent translucent copper of average vibrance. No floating yeast particles are visible; it's quite clean. Appears adequately carbonated.
Overall, it's a pretty average appearance for the style.
Sm: Sweet malts and corn adjunct. Clean barley. Generic characterless hops.
No yeast character or alcohol is detectable.
A bland boring aroma of average strength. Not real inviting. Meh.
T: Generic sweet malts, corn adjunct, and clean barley. That's about it.
No hop profile, yeast character, or alcohol comes through.
Painfully simple. Boring. Unbalanced. Not a gestalt build - or even a real cohesive one. Lacks complexity, subtlety, nuance, and intricacy. Not an inspired or bold brew. I'm not really enjoying it.
Mf: Smooth, wet, crisp. Light to medium bodied. Okay thickness. Mediocre presence on the palate. Unrefreshing. Average acidity. Overcarbonated.
Texture doesn't really suit the flavour profile all that well.
Not oily, gushed, hot, astringent, boozy, harsh, or rough.
Okay presence on the palate.
Dr: A downable beer in this style. I'm not horribly impressed, but I do like it for what it is. I doubt I'd get it again, but you could do worse in this style. This bottle will be easy to kill. This is about as average as they come, but I do want to point out that the price point and availability are both excellent. Pedestrian.
