Best by August 27, 2012:

In a pint glass (also had in a pilsener, only change was a two finger head in the pilsener):

A: golden yellow body gave a small one finger white fizzy head. Minimal lacing was left with some rings around the glass. Fast rising carbonation was seen.

S: basicly hops and malts, nothing special and nothing that stood out as amazing.

T: pretty much the same.

M: light to medium with moderate carbonation felt

O: this is a mediocre beer. Nothing stood out to say I need to have this again immediately.

Bought a Discovery Twelve Pack and this was one of the beers in it.

12 ounce bottle with no freshness date.

Pours a clear, amber body with a well-sized, frothy, white head wih average retention

The taste is easy and enjoyable. Almost watery at times, but the predominant flavors are pale malts and light toasty malts with a touch of graininess and caramel.

Average, but sessionable at the local watering hole if you had no other choice.

Small capped bottle, poured into a pint glass.

Light amber color, white head, decent retention, little lacing.
Aroma, just like the flavor, is pleasant, well balanced, but by no means deep or complex. Cookie maltiness, grassy hoppiness, with the malts being more noticeable than the hops.
Light to medium bodied, a decent amber.
