In terms of cheap ales, this one's not half bad. Maybe it tastes better since I am drinking it at work on my last day there, snitched from the company fridge. Sweet smell of grass with even a touch of bitterness in the hops. The look is ok, but hard to tell since it is being drunk straight out of the bottle. Taste is pleasantly better than expected, but that's not saying much since my expectations were low. Grassy, light sweet malt--maybe saying I can taste some jasmine is doing it more justice than it deserves. It pairs well with the homemade spicy Thai pork curry I brought for lunch. Light mouthfeel.

Clear yellow colored beer with a small white colored head.

Smells sweet with a mild floral noble hop aroma. Mild caramel and some grassy scents.

Starts out mildly sweet. Cracker malt and mild hop bitterness, it is a little bland.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Overall just an average beer, not something I would seek out but I wouldn't refuse a free one.

Bottled 14MAR13

Golden, light, light, yellow. Sheet of white atop and brillantly clarified. Smells like skunk, corn, grain and some bits of soil. Tastes like cheap beer, stronger than a Coors light, but less than say a Rolling Rock. Simple and grainy with little satisfying merits. Thin and moderately carbed with a wet finish that lingers longer than I'd prefer. Seems like a decent pairing with the shitty jack in the box I have beside me.
