2.29/5  rDev -26.1%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Poured a pils glass.

2.75 A: Clear golden yellow color. Just over one finger of foamy white head. Retention is below average and no lacing is left.

2.75 S: Reeks of corn and I'm not sure if there's rice in there or not. Sweet grassiness and hints of rubber. Faint grassy hoppiness.

2.0 T: Sickeningly sweet grassy corn. That's by far the dominant flavor. It's worse than in most of the big boys AALs.

2.5 M: Lighter body. Carbonation is a bit stingy. Could use a bit more creaminess.

2.25 D: This isn't something I recommend drinking. It might be even worse than a lot of the BMC out there.

Serving type: bottle

2.99/5  rDev -3.5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

Pours a golden yellow color with a very fizzy 1 inch head that reduced quickly, wow just a ton of carbonation. Smell is a little dull some grain and faint hop. Taste is ok, sweet fruit notes with a little bitter in the finish. Mouthfeel is smooth and light.

Overall, it's an ok beer nothing that will knock your socks off, but also very drinkable. My suggestion for serving this beer...is that it tastes way better served very cold. Great beer for frozen mugs.

One more note, I always keep a few cans of this beer around for cooking brats, it makes one of the best brat hot tubs. Cheers!
