look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Thanks to bertram for sending this one along as an extra.

Beer pours a hazy light yellow/gold with a thin white head. Smell is a little on the sweet side with hints of maybe apple or even a little grape. Flavor follows the nose, this is essentially a better version of an adjunct lager that brings a slight hint of apple and sweetness to go along with the usual corn of the adjuncts. It's far from spectacular tasting, but it's a good representation of what it is. Mouthfeel is thin-medium bodied with nice carbonation. Overall, this is essentially the high end version of your average light lager. It's pretty decent, and I can see why the Wisconsin-ites swear by it in the summer, but it's far from great, just above average.
