3.3/5  rDev -6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4

Poured from bottle to an imperial pint. Best by May 9, 2011 stamped on bottle.

A: Golden and crystal clear with moderate carbonation and a foamy white head. Decent retention.

S: Sweet, corny smell. Style description says brewed without cereal adjuncts, but I smell corn.

T: Grassy and crisp, with a bit of roasted malt and a nice hop bitterness at the end for this type of beer.

M: Light bodied but not too watery and a touch of creaminess. Pleasant.

D: Would be a great lawnmower beer, except that it's a limited release. This would be an outstanding alternative to an AAL for those poor souls who are tied to that style.

Review from notes
Pours into pint glass a hazy golden color with little presence of head to speak of but decent carbonation.
Smells of biscuit like barley malts with a slight scent of hops in the mix as well.
Taste/Mouthfeel a hoppy front end that mellows to a lager finish with a slight hop after taste.
Overall, I was intrigued by how this beer seemed to be a nice cross between a lager & a pale ale. A good session beer in a crowded field if Leinenkugels were priced to compete w/Molson & Labatt instead of Sierra Nevada I'd nab it more often. Decent stuff
