look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Well for starters on the looks, it is crystal clear, I mean it's completely see through, I know it's a lager, but this is kinda of ridiculous. This might be the most see through beer I have ever seen. It pours a one and a half finger head that is a hanging around for a bit, which is surprising, giving the appearance of it. Also in the appearance - so much carbonation, wow, OMG! There are so many f-ing bubbles coming up from this thing. I hate to say it, but other than the head, this thing doesn't look too good. The smell is a little better, I don't pick up any corn or anything really offensive like that, it smells like a lager. I mean there really isn't much aroma though, you get a small malty smell, maybe a hint of hops somewhere in there, but not much. It just kinda smells like a generic lager, without the corn and other crap. Ok, well for the taste, it's not too bad. It for sure tastes like a lager, and there really isn't too much going on in the way of taste, but there really isn't anything offensive about it, it's very smooth and easy drinking. I'm torn with the taste really, because it is tasty, and there isn't anything wrong with it, it's just really really not exotic as far as the taste goes. I want to give this a 4 on taste, but I can't bring myself to do that, so 3.5. Mouthfeel is normal for a lager and the drinkability is pretty high, but that is no surprise. I guess overall it's an easy drinking lager, and it is tasty, with nothing wrong with it, but if there was a beer to define the term "nothing special about it" this would be the one.

3.74/5  rDev +2.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

Thin white bubbly head and pale gold color. Aroma is sweet, grainy and slightly vinous with grassy, piney, very "American" hoppiness. Flavor exhibits a lot of sweet American lager flavor without the cheap adjunct nastiness. Very clean. Finishes with a slight tinge of hoppiness. A very clean, sessionable beer for summer, or any time really. Think of it as a better tasting "stubby bottle beer".
