2.88/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

12 oz bottle into new belgium goblet
a-red/orange with a high degree of clarity. pours 1 finger of bone colored head that dissipates quickly to a ring that leaves no lacing.

s-light, light caramel, maybe a touch of nut. but not much else. touch of hops. imagine a good amber mixed half and half with a bud light.

t-light caramel, heavy on the corn, especially during the aftertaste. slight hop bitterness rounds it out a bit. it tastes like miller lite made an amber, oh wait...

m-fairly effervescent and tingly on the tongue. but overall, thin and not very interesting.

d- better than a standard adjunct, but not by much. a subpar beer from a mediocre brewery. if you're going for a leinie's get the 1888 Bock. Otherwise get an actual microbrew.
