Smells grainy with some astringent sharp like hop in the back. Taste is actually not bad at all. Its like a better Budweiser. The mouthfeel a bit more full and almost creamy like maybe because its a lager. You taste the grainy malt but tastes nicer than it smells which adds a pretty nice sweetness against some actual hop bitterness. I'm surprised. The hop bitterness almost reminds me of a Ballantine XXX ale. It leaves you with that sharp hop taste and grainy sweet malt taste. Probably my favorite Adjunct Lager... it has more of a hop presence than a Yuengling so I like this just a bit better actually...I'm surprised. It's brewed in the USA though by Oil Can breweries....which is good because I'm a vegetarian and I heard the American made version is vegetarian where the Australian made one isn't. If I want a cheap beer this is a good go to.

Pours with exceptional clarity. Light gold with lots of lager bubbles wafting toward the top to meet a fat soapy head of white foam that had better retention that I thought It might. Nose is crisp with only a slight bit of apple, sweet grain and a bright hops character. A bit of lemon from those pride of ringwood hops as it warms. Taste follows the nose all the way. The malt stays in the background until it warms and brings a light dry cracker. The apple is thin and delicious adding something cheerful and crisp. The carbonation has a small bite and the yeast imparts a bit of sourness to really round out this beer. Even though the middle is quite dry and palate cleansing, this beer finishes off dry and with a bit of sweet lemon and is very delicious. I would have this again.

Big ol' fluffy white head with stickage atop a pale golden brew. Looks like a nice glass of beer. No complaints here.
Grassy pilsner malts with a sprite hop presence. Surprisingly, pretty clean. Well-lagered. A slight musty Euro malt note that fades. Not bad.
Pretty clean again. Slight minty hop character that doesn't pair too badly with musty grassiness, slight mineral qualities, and watery grain. Finished gruff and spiny with adjunct sweetness hidden behind a note of fair booze.
Lots and lots of carbonation present. The body is weak, but it's a quenching drink. Booze presence is a little annoying.
Fosters is okay. I would order one when fresh, if left to macro options only.
