3.03/5 rDev -19.6%
Appearance: Excellent carbonation with very good lacing. Straw yellow.
Smell: Very neutral. A bit of lemon
Taste/Mouthfeel: Sour lemon. Extremely bitter lemon rind really overwhelms here. Crisp mouthfeel that works well with bitterness.
Overall Drinkability: Pretty eh for Great Lakes.

Poured from the bottle into pint glass, appearance is a staw yellow color. It is a bit of a deeper color yellow than most adjuncts you would probably compare this to.
The nose is of hay or straw, and a grassy floral overtone that is from the Noble Hops, Cascades most likely.
The first taste is somewhat astringent, the carbonation is quite lively in this brew. The straw taste comes through a little bit, and some lighter types of malts are also present and bring some sweetness to the party. With the swallow and exhale, the hops give a good floral taste that coincides with the nose, and they almost too strong for a pilsner.
As mentioned, this beer is carbonated pretty heavily and gives a good prickly feeling to the tongue. Overall the feel of the beer is pretty watery which is fine since most pilsners are.
My overall thoughts of this beer are that it's an "Okay" offering from Great Lakes. It seems to be an attempt to get some business from people that usually buy AB or Coors. The thing about it is that if that was their idea behind this beer, it's a pretty big failure. The taste is radically different from a Bud. This would be too bitter for a person that drinks BMC all the time.

Poured into pilsner, very nice carbonation and a full, resilient foamy head. Light yellow like apple cider or a rich champagne.
Smells strongly of grains, corn, and hops. Some depths of bread and biscuits, very grassy/earthy aroma.
Tastes of corn mostly, crisp enough to enjoy, finishes with mild hops and fizzy bubbles. Taste isn't entirely too complex, in fact, it kind of reminds me of a light macrobrew. Frankly, it is a rather simple beer.
