1.9/5 rDev -39.1%
Appearance: Pours a transparent yellow to golden color…white head, about a finger thick, is firm and somewhat lasting…minimal bubble action…thin and watery…(2.5/5)
Smell: Bitter, not hoppy bitter, skunky bitter…very light wheat, kinda corny…super basic…(1.5/5)
Taste: A light wheat and malt taste…very watery…(2/5)
Mouthfeel: Very light and pretty crisp, but there is a surprising amount of carbonation…nothing that lasts or forms cotton candy, but it does exist and that’s saying something (for this beer)…some malty, bitter after taste, but this beer pretty much comes and goes…(2.25/5)
Overall: Watery…I guess this is a lager, as I don’t often dabble too much into this category…it’s very watery and real basic…no flavor beyond the light wheat and corn and it doesn’t leave much of an impression on the palette…very little experimentation here, it’s just “beer”…i would suspect that most home brewers can make a similar tasting ale…if you like lagers, this one is crisp and clean and drinkable, but if you are wanting for flavor, don’t look here…(1.75/5)

A: The beer is crystal clear yellow in color and has a light amount of carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down a bit but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: There are moderately strong aromas of corn and grainy malts in the nose. The corn subsides a little as the beer warms up.
T: The taste is similar to the smell, except that the corn isn't as prominent and there are also notes of pale malts and a slight amount of carbonation.
M: It feels light-bodied and clean on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: Nothing really stands out about the smell or taste of this beer but it is rather easy to drink.

Poured from a brown1 2 oz. bottle. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of grains and malts. Taste is light, mild, some malts and grains, refreshing but a bit on the weak side. Feels light in the mouth and overall, while not terrible, is just meh.

LOOK: Pale golden color with a fine clarity. Head dies down to a ring.
SMELL: Lager yeast and sweet pale malts.
TASTE: Mildly bitter piney hop and lagery yeast strain. A one-two punch of bread and bitterness.
FEEL: Light to medium bodied, Ok carbonation.
OVERALL: About average lager. Nothing special but decent.

Picked this up in a pick your own six. Yellow in color and with a light and quick moving head.
Odor is a little light. Smells kind of bland and grain like.
Taste is light as well. Not as bland as the odor though. Some hops but not really enough for them to stand out. Relatively balanced throughout, but does not stand out. Has a pretty good finish however. Mouth feel is a little dull and thin.
Overall, not a bad beer. However it does leave you wanting a little overall. Just about average. More like a light beer.

Pours a clean deep yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, sweet grains to a small dry end. In the taste, sweeter across the board and a small pine hop. A small bite and medium to lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a dry and somewhat lager like after taste. Cascade hops and a bigger body than a lager, but quite lager like.
