Looks ok, drinks like a bland smash without enough cascade to give it some oomph. Feel wasn't too bad, pretty drinkable, but overall not something I was overly impressed with. I recall this beer being much better than this, so I don't know if that's from memory too long gone or that it's changed for the worst since days gone by.

12oz : pint glass

Clear golden, with a fizzy, short lived white head.

Sweet, grainy malts. Light grassy, bitter hop finish. Nothing exciting, but I can't what it is, as it matches the style.

Medium body, fizzy carbonation.

A decent beer, nothing to write home about, but pleasant enough to drink without putting much thought into the flavor profile.

Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a straw color with a one finger fizzy white head. The head fades very rapidly, leaving only a thin level of foamy lace on the sides of the glass and a bit of foam on the surface of the brew.

Smell – The aroma is mainly of a grainy nature mixed with some smells of a caramel and corn sweetness. Along with these smalls are some lighter notes of a grassy and herbal nature as well as just a hint of a lemon citrus smell.

Taste –The taste begins with a rather bready flavor mixed with some lighter caramel and corn tastes. The taste upfront is rather smooth and refreshing remaining that way much throughout the taste. A bit of a grainy and grassy flavor comes to the tongue more toward the middle to the end of the taste, but yet still melds well with the other flavors, maintaining a rather smooth taste. In the end, a light level of an earthy and herbal flavor come to the tongue, along with a slight increase in the sweet flavors of corn and caramel, to leave a somewhat sweeter, but rather pleasant and still crisp flavor to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on thinner side with a carbonation level that is rather average. Both are good for the lighter tastes and somewhat sweeter flavors of the brew making this a rather easy drinking beer.

Overall – A decent brew at a reasonable price. Quite easy drinking and flavorful in the sweeter department with a rather easy drinking taste making for a decent session/ social drinking brew.
