look: 5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

A - The Cascading pour was just intense and wonderful to look at, it ended up creating a strong, creamy head. Super thick and puffy. The beer itself was a light gold, almost crystal clear. Really nice to look at.

S - Not too much coming from this, kind of a basic malt smell with a bit of sweeter fruit.

T - Really was let down here. It was almost like a richer, creamier, coors original. I feel bad making that comparison but there just wasnt a whole lot too it. It was certainly bready and maybe a bit of banana in there at the end.

M - Very light and easy on the mouth, not too much going on.

Seems like any basic american pilsner or lager. Just not a whole lot too it other than appearance. This is a great aesthetic beer but a poor drinking beer.

Serving type: nitro-can

1 Pint Nitro-can poured in to an imperial pint...

I haven't had this beer in ages and I've always wanted to revisit it, but I've just never had the chance. The beer had that awesome cascading effect as I poured it, automatically making it look very promising. It had a nice golden color, very similar to clover honey. A slightly off-white head formed and stuck around for a bit, and then deflated in to a film of bubbles covering the beer.

The aroma is of sweet grain, but ends with a slightly acidic sting. The grainy sweetness is in the taste. There is also a mild hop. A sour metallic taste begins to creep out at the end and lingers a bit after the bready finish. The mouthfeel is very smooth and thin. I wouldn't go as far as to say that it's watery, but there is a lacking of substance.

The beer is very easy to drink and is a great product to get a person in to better beer, but it still leaves much to be desired. I do remember it being more palatable on nitro-tap. Until then...2.5
