look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
Pours a light golden with lots of bubbles. Brief foamy head thins but remains.
Aroma is of pils malt and almost resembles an american adjunct lager.
Taste is slightly sweeter and slightly maltier than an american lager. Cleaner yet more interesting too, and a nice smooth finish that requires further investigation. Very drinkable.

Pours a clear, bright, straw yellow with a voluminous white head. Scattered lacing results when the head dissipates to a chunky film.
Smell is missing. A lot of inhalation results in little being found, some citrus/floral hops, some faint malt. Is this a BMC product?
Taste is much more prevalent with the aforementioned citrus & floral hops, malt, a wee bit of alcohol but no burn, some saltiness crackers, maybe some apple?
Medium bodied with restrained effervescence. A decent, fading, aftertaste. This isn't a BMC brew, the hops are not overpowering, it has some flavor and some balance. There really isn't anything to recommend this but it's no drain pour either. To quote a friend, "it doesn't suck". But that is the best thing I can say about it.
