Enjoyed in a weizen glass

A: Pours a crystal clear very very light hay color with a ton of carbonation bubbles and a ton of large bubbled soapy looking pure white head which dissipates at a moderate rate before leaving a decent amount of scattered lacing
S: so, sadly, this beer reminds me right off the bat of an adjunct american lager, light, cereal grains and not much more, there is a slight sweetness of honey which is detectable at the very end
T: begins with a nice deep sweetness which reminds me alot of honey, big surprise, also there are notable light cereal grains, not much complexity or depth
M: smooth and clean, slightly cloying at the end, does leave the mouth feeling slightly bright even cold like a mint freshness without the flavor
O: im not overly familiar with this style but i do find this example to be very bland and unfortunately reminiscent of adjunct lagers, honey was nice but not much else was worth mentioning

I was expecting something with flavors of honey and perhaps wheat when I opened this; instead I got something resembling a slightly-less-adjuncty Molson Canadian.

Aroma is of fruit and chewy honey cough drops. Poured like a true fizzy yellow beer, with a wisp of foam and a pale golden body.

Taste: macro lager with perhaps a hint of wheat instead of corn. The website proudly proclaims "John prefers it over ice, with a slice of lemon or lime". I don't know who John is, but assuming he works at the brewery and is trumpeting about two beer sins, I'm a bit leery. There's really nothing else to say about this beer's flavor...light, non-descript, bland american macro lager.

The High Falls Brewery of Wisconsin?
