Served in a 473ml can into an English pint glass.

Appearance: Light amber color. Decent transparency. Average size head.

Smell: The smell was definitely the worst part of this beer. I can't quiet pin what it is but the IPA also carried this scent or "funk" aswell. Almost cornish maybe?

Taste: Not too bad but fairly watery. A decent session beer and could be easy to drink quiet a few. Slight caramelish taste. Not too hoppy and kind of sweet. Somewhat watery as well.

Mouth feel: Goes down somewhat smooth and not too bad feeling overall.

Overall: Not really a beer to enjoy and savor but more of a swill. I could see it being popular with party goers looking to down a couple beers that are a little better than the regular macro-lagers but honestly not really that much to offer in terms of flavor and taste. Slightly less than average for me but might be the reverse with others.
