Served from bottle into pilsner glass at refrigerator temperature. This is an interesting beer- it's lack of flavor and depth is not necessarily a failing, unless you want a beer. The aroma of is American malt with a subtle hop presence; the flavor is exactly the same and is about as strong as it's almost non present color and head. For a beverage, it's not bad- even if the label does make fun of the pretentious craft beer that so many of us love. There is no complexity to this swill, but that's not a bad thing. For a backyard bbq, after showing off some good beer, this would be a fantastic refreshing brew. Think of it like alcoholic soda. For the money ($ not $$), it's not bad- but I might tend toward Strohs for cheap stuff- but I would but it again.

THE smoothest Lager around. I live in Michigan, So as a native I felt inclined to pick this up and it is wonderful. I truly do not understand why it is receiving so much hate. Perhaps I just got a fresher 6 pack considering that I live about 30 miles from where it is brewed. This beats ANY other American lager on any day in every single aspect. This a welcome change to a guy whom of which typically parties on the cheap

A friend gave me a bottle try out and since it is American owned and American made (to my understanding) I will drink it.

A: Looks like urine. Lime yellow, pale doesn't explain how watered down it looks. Fizzy, bubbly head runs away after several seconds.

S: Crisp, hint of sweet honey, biscuit tangy lager aroma.

T: Tastes like carbonated water. No alcohol presence at all.

M: If I would believe it was carbonated green tea if told so. No mouthfeel at all.

O: Better than BMC light lagers (have not had one in two years:), smooth yet not my thing. I would use this as mouthwash in-between an IPA and a Stout to help rinse out my pallet.
