A: Poured into my trusty pilsner flute. Pale straw. Slightly darker than a macro lager. Finger and a half eggshell head. Vigorous carbonation, but the head holds on for a bit. Nice retention in the glass. Looks overcarbonated, but otherwise pretty good.

S: Grassy, grainy, maybe slightly herbal. Not much of the biscuit malt in here. Slightly spicy and floral, as well.

T: Big hit of grass and grain in the front of the tongue. Slightly sweet in the mouth, this beer takes a decidedly macro turn afterwards, with hop extract notes. Herbal, a little spicy. Mid palate of white grapes. Malt is more is somewhere between a saltine and a biscuit. Aftertaste takes on more of the spicy, floral notes.

M: Surprising. While carbonated, it's not nearly as bad as one would think looking in the glass. There is some malt to weigh down the carbonation and keep it in check.

O: This beer is decent. While none of the flavors are going to wow and it definitely has that mass produced taste, it hits enough on all the right notes. Definitely my favorite green bottle.

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.
