A: Twist off!!!! Haven't had a twist off in forever. Also I was mad to see that this bad boy was brewed in Canada... I guess I don't understand. Otherwise an epic pour yields little head. Pours super light. Head stays around for a while though. Light light light golden color. Lots of bubbles.

S: Bleh, smells like stale yeast. Watery. That's about it.

T: Water at first with just a little bit of yeast and malt. Then some stale hops that are dry indeed. The goal was for light I see but it doesn't finish clean which for a light beer like this is maybe not so good.

M: Sits light. No flavor development. Bad linger.

This is quite bad. I the goal for light beer was not very well attained with the attempt at flavor here ending in a stale imprecise bitterness. Pass on this one.

A - copper-gold with a thin layer of soft, white head that has little retention

S - very faint nose; sweet and grainy

T - apples, fruity sweetness, grainy

M - light to medium bodied, well carbonated

This is way too sweet. It honestly tastes more like apple juice than beer. This is definitely a one and done. I'll avoid this in the future.

nah. id rather have water with my sushi i think. pours pisswater yellow with zero head. smells like metallic mass produced adjunct crap, but doesnt taste nearly as bad. actually some nice tang in the malt flavor and a sort of hoppy back end. mouthfeel is brutally light, but with enough carbonation to get the food moving. overall this is not a craft lager, but the rice malt makes it unique to a degree, and its lightness makes it crazy drinkable. have quite a few before you realize you dont like it, ya know?

12oz bottle served in a standard shaker pint.

pours a light golden/yellow tone with a tall, spritzy white head that recedes fairly quickly; not much lacing to speak of. nose is mild, with some grainy, rice aromas being it's centerpiece. not getting much in the way of hops.

flavor imparts a vague maltiness along with the grainy, rice-like notes evident in the nose. again, hops pretty much nonexistent. finish is clean. an underwhelming, inoffensive macro beer. not much better than your BMC. medium-light mouthfeel with average to above average carbonation.

overall, meh. don't have a big frame of reference for this style, but to me it falls somewhere in the macro continuum alongside coors and heineken. drinkable but really not doing a lot for me.
