4.08/5 rDev +25.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Bottle poured into a Pilsener glass.
A- It poured with a 1-finger, foamy, white head that eventually dropped to a decent lace that left nice sticky spots on the glass. The body was a clean, golden color that had a rush of carbonation that subsided to a steady, medium flow.
S- There was an intial skunky scent. A second whiff gave a really doughy aroma that turned buscuity later on and light, floral hops. It turned out to be quite pleasant.
T- It had a nice doughy flavor that was lightly hopped to give grassy notes. The finish was clean and dry. Overall, I'd say it was more on the malty side of the spectrum.
M- It had medium, foamy carbonation and a clean, yet full, feel.
D- It's an easy drinker. Being fairly easy on the pocketbook, I could see this being a regular in my summer rotation.
Overall- I took advantage of a warm, late-winter day to give this a try. I can't really say anything bad about this one. Maybe I wasn't "wowed," but it's solid all the same.

500mL can, date stamped 275/13, so I'm assuming it was canned on October 2, 2013. Maybe a bit past its prime, but I'm sure it hasn't been affected a whole lot, if any.
L - golden with nice clarity, fizzy white head dissipates quickly
S - grain, spicy grassy noble hop, yeast
T - grass, possible adjunct grain, spicy noble hop
F - dry and crisp, lighter body
O - this was always in my father-in-law's fridge and I hated it so much, but coming back to it, it's not that bad. I'd rather drink something else, but it's not as terrible as I remember.

2.98/5 rDev -8.3%

Pours golden and is very clear.. good head on this one that slowly fades
Smells grassy with a hint of apricot?
Tastes pretty good.. a smooth drop with a slight hint of floral hops (minimal but there)
For the price this is a very good buy. Will be getting a few next time.
