Poured from the clear 12oz bottle with foiled cap into a pilsner glass. I really can't believe the presentation of this beer. The foil for classiness paired with the clear bottle showing off this pale lager just struck me as sort of ironic and pretentious. There really is nothing remarkable about this beer. I guess the "classy" presentation works to attract buyers, differentiating it from the "less classy" beers all around it on the gas station shelves.
In reality it is no different. This is a completely average and typical adjunct lager, and I'm sure in a blind taste test would be almost indistinguishable from the others. It's a bit lighter I guess, but then the clear bottle actually hinders it from being as drinkable.
All around mediocre.
