Vermont

1.58/5  rDev -43.4%
look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours a golden color with a one-finger head into my pint glass. Seems typical for the style.

Aroma is sweet with a hint of corn in the nose. Otherwise, just sweet and not much else.

Sweet with a hint of corn and malt upfront. Not much else to detect for flavor. Simplistic. Boring.

Mouthfeel is full of lingering sweet malt and corn. Not much there. Watery. Unimpressive.

Your average adjunct lager here. Definitely nothing to brag about.

3.51/5  rDev +25.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

(bottle code: D034A128 - poured into a pilsner glass)

A: rapidly sizzling-out head... crystal-clear, lion's mane gold colored liquid...

S: pancake batter?... dusty upholstery?...

T: typical N. American lager characteristics, overall... stale Ritz cracker, popcorn... mild dry grass, mist of proofing dough... hint of toasted husk in the aftertaste... pizza with green peppers(?!), very late

M: clean, soft... moderate tingle throughout... a bit medium-bodied for an adjunct lager, typical of the Mexican examples... dry, semi-flat finish

O: not terrible... about what I expected... not as nice as Bohemia, but still good enough to drink all night on its own or with spicy, greasy Mexican dishes
