3.3/5 rDev +17.9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4.5
12oz. can into pint glass
A: Yellow with a very short-lived and anemic white head.
S: I have to stick my nose into the glass to smell anything, but there's a little sweetness, faint citrus, and that's all I can get. Maybe if the head had lasted longer...
T/M: light, "soda water" mouthfeel -- to be expected with this style. Taste is grainy with a light balancing bitterness. If I let it get too warm, the corn starts to really dominate the flavor profile and it gets kinda nasty. Best to drink this one cold. As long as it's kept at the proper temperature, though, it's actually really good for an adjunct lager because it is fairly balanced and there are no real off-flavors.
D: Great hot weather session beer when kept at the proper temperature.
Serving type: can
