look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured from 24 oz can into a pint glass.
Appearance: light straw color with a one-finger white foamy head. Not much retention or lacing. Pretty average for what it is.
Smell: grainy nose, not very exciting or appealing. While I suppose it is average for the style, it's not particularly enticing.
Taste: bland and grainy. There is a little bit of sweetness to the malt, but it is mostly pretty dry. In this style, for me, dryness is a good thing.
Mouthfeel: medium-light body with a nice level of carbonation. This might be the beer's high point for me.
Drinkability: gonna go with average here as well. It's not entirely flavorless, but its aroma is just off-putting enough to make me not terribly interested in this otherwise mediocre beer. That said, it is still a pretty airy lager, and could be drunk easily in the sun or while tailgating.
All too often my beer runs to the store are for high quality, high alcohol, maximum flavor type brews. It's nice to go back to the blue collar well once in awhile.
Serving type: can
