3.21/5  rDev +15.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from a 16oz can into my Moonlight shaped pint glass.

Brilliantly clear Mikado yellow body with a smattering of off white foam. Delicate lacing, decent retention.

Very faint apple (golden delicious) in the nose with a touch of straw - clean malt, and little else. Faint grassy note along with a hint of honey.

Malty, slightly fruity with a somewhat grainy base - not much character despite what the can claims. Light hop bitterness throughout with a touch of dandelion greens. Medium-dry finish with a little alcohol kick.

Medium bodied, zippy, crisp, and relatively refreshing despite the ABV.

While I bought a 4-pack to counter the growing heat of an afternoon spent working in the yard, it would pair equally well as a counter-point to a heart stew on a cold night.

(Served in a strange)
A- This beer pours a clear lemon yellow body with a slow carbonation supporting a bubble white head that last for a bit as a thin film.

S- The clean slightly sulfury hops note comes through as the beer opens.

T- The dry clean flavor has a pungent bitterness that turns to a bitter bite in the aftertaste.

M- the medium-light mouthfeel has a spicy fizz and no alcohol heat noticed.

O- This beer is thin and a bit flavorless with the only flavor being a big hop bitterness. It was not worth finishing.

I bought a 4 pack of cans. The beer has a yellow / Orange hue with a thin white head. The smell is malty and a bit sweet. Its taste is more bitter than most american lagers and there is an unpleasant bitterness in the aftertaste. I'm also getting a metallic aftertaste that builds the more I drink the beer. There is a smoothness to the beer and it has light carbonation.

I found this single 500ml brown bottle in the back cooler of Springbrook Liquoprs in Blooimingdale, IL. Good value at $1.99 for this size bottle, so I took one home to try it.

The beer poured a rich gold color but it only made a razor thin rinfg of white foam on top, and even that disappeared quickly. No lacing.

The beer smelled like a mix of grain and sugar.

Sweet start to this, but it soon turns to an unpleasant metalic taste with alcohol being the only other flavor.

Medium bodied with medium carbonation.

I didn't care for this at all and wouldn't buy it again despite its cheap price.

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Slightly dark gold, has a (white) head which didn't rise much maybe to a 1/8".

Smell: Light light hops, not much bragging right here.

Taste: Lightly bitter but exceptionally smooth. This isn't your american-style malt liquor. Very easy but sharp.

Mouth: Medium carbonation, exceeded my expectations.

Overall: Not bad at all, I mean it isn't the best beer you will have in your life but overall it satisfies you, if it doesn't it was only 2 and half bucks. Salud!
