look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

This beer is basically a light beer. It has nothing much to review. It doesn't really taste horrible, it just has no taste at all. There isn't a hint of maltiness, or hoppiness or even the grainy taste a good American lager has. It has no smell, mouthfeel is very thin, carbonation is barely detectable... I don't know what this beer is supposed to be, or why it was brewed.

look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a thin white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains light caramelized malts, grain and a very faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out with mildly bready flavors of grain and a thin malt character. Then some mild sweetness comes in. The hops presence is very mild but brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light-to-medium body, medium carbonation, finish is clean.

O: Not very flavorful, goes down ok, not too filling, mild kick, not the best representation of style, there are several beers in the style that are better than this one.

I picked this up in a mix-a-six from Giant Beer Garden & Eatery. Enjoyed chilled from a snifter with carlos.

The color is golden with light chill haze and small white cap with average bead and no lace to speak of is left. The smell has an adjunct-like with a sweet corn type aroma and subtle yeast ester. The feel is okay with creamy light sweetness and mild bitterness with semi-dry finish and slightly high carbonation with a bit of diacetyl smoothness up front.

The taste is decent as it is generall lightly malty with some malt flavor the only thing I can say is the rye in the grist seems to get overwhelmed in the taste bu the adjunct flavor which is kind of dissapointing. Overall I would probably pass unless this was offered to me, since it is not bad, but not really worth buying a second time.
