look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5
poured golden-yellow (very light caramel?) with a thick head which has lasted few a through gulps and is leaving some light lacing. carbonation is on the light side, but this is a plus in my book.
scent is grassy with a slight barnyard funk. (faintly reminiscent of horse manure.) no identifiable hops.
taste is pretty one-dimensional. very light malt (a bit corny?) turns grainy pretty quickly, followed by a diffuse non-descript bitterness. (hops? what are those?) it ends in a mixed up bitter / metal way. it's not godawful, but it's not interesting or engaging in any way.
mouthfeel is just OK. it's more astringent than anything else.
continued slurping keeps the metallic bitter aftertaste away; I think I'll need to chase this with some better beer.
I do actually prefer this to Foster's bitter, which seems an increase all the _bad_ aspects of the lager.

From the infamous oil can. Brewed in Fort Worth Texas. Best by date Dec 1. 2014. So quite fresh.
Pours clear gold with two fingers of long lived white head. Lacings were spectacular and some head remained to the bottom of the nonic pint glass.
Smell was mostly white bread. Some herbal or grassy hops also.
Taste is mostly malts white bread or biscuit. The hops are mostly noticed in the dry finish.
Mouthfeel is good. Carbonation is bold and the body is light to medium.
Overall a suprisingly good beer for the style. Served as cold as possible. As the beer warmed it still tasted alright with no off tastes.
