A - Golden colored body with moderate eggshell white head. Very bubbly, head is moderate in retention, lacing is good.
S - Faint trace of malty sweetness. Not too much going on here.
T - Fairly well balanced in malt and bitterness. No real complexity but decently good for an adjunct lager.
M - Light bodied and well carbonated. Nothing extraordinary but nothing wrong here.
O - In terms of American adjunct lagers this one is towards the top I think. It is superior to all light beers on the market in terms of flavor. Don't get super excited to drink this beer, but when you are going out fishing or watching football all day, this is a good go to beer.

Pours a faint golden color with not much going on in terms of head formation or retention. Stillwater beer doesn't boast any carbonation. A look that doesn't impress me or most others.
Some rice adjunct notes with okay dryness. Lacking crispness or any kind of depth. Malts stand strong for a half-ass lager. Not a whole lot going on right or wrong with this one. Sweetens a bit as it warms.
Has the flavor of a semi-sweet adjunct lager with a minor-league hop note. Traces of mintiness mixed with musty grains and a basic crisp nature; it all offers relief. A little corny, but forgiving. Fizzy, but diffuse. Really, a more refined approach to Mexican swill lager.

It looks the part: crystal-clear pale to medium yellow-gold, maybe a little depth to it. It actually develops a reasonably-sized, fluffy pure white head. It doesn't drop a whole lot of lace, but there's some spotting around the glass.
There's some earth on the nose, and some grassy and herbal hops make a show. It's got more hops than most AALs, but it has an unfortunate skunkiness to it as well.
The skunk doesn't really translate to the flavor, which is nice. It's still got light notes of grass and herb with a bit of pale, dry malts.
The feel is better than what most of this style have to offer, light-bodied without being terribly watery, a bit thin but not as much as most. It's got plenty of crispness and it actually gets pretty smooth. That it's pretty clean is also a plus.
