So this beer, hmm.
This beer is a great one to have on a really hot summer day, IMO. When your average American would be reaching for a Bud Light or a Coors, etc, intercept them with this.
Not to say that this is a complex beer by any means, because it simply isn't. What it IS is a nice break from beers you have to think about. It's something that, while simple, it's simple in a very positive way.
There isn't anything that stands out about its appearance -- namely that it's basically piss yellow with a little bit of head. Looks like typical macro-brew yadda yadda.
Smells like beer. Kinda.
Tastes heavenly when outside on a 90 degree day. Tastes less heavenly when you're just sitting around doing whatever. But for the sake of my review, I'm going to pretend I'm doing yard work, so it tastes great! Extremely refreshing without being overly sweet like a shandy or a lime-beer.
Going down, it feels like water, really. Not much to be said here, but not offensive by any means.
Seriously. It's summer time. Don't be pretentious. Grab a Dos Equis Special (or like 10.)

2.9/5 rDev +5.8%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 3
Appearance: Light gold, thin bleach white head that died extremely fast, pretty nice lacing.
Smell: Light very sweet smelling malt and mixed grain, light floral. Reminds me almost exactly of budweiser-sweet smelling grain with a touch of light floral.
Taste: Sweet Malt and mixed grain, light floral, an odd metal taste almost like licking the bottle cap (I've done it oddly enough). Very light body; water-like. Champagne like carb on the tongue.
Final Thoughts: To be honest, if I was blindfolded and given this I would think someone filled the glass 50/50 Bud and Bud Light. Not interested personally, but it could have been alot worse.
