2.3/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2

I've been drinking this beer for years and I used to love it. Now that I've had the opportunity to expand my horizon on beer I realize that this one is mediocre at best. That said, it's still a good one for a tailgate or a BBQ.

Poured it from a can into a pint glass. Let it sit for a few minutes after pulling it out of the fridge.

Appearance - Clear, light-amber in color, transparent. Gave it a hard pour and initially had a few fingers of a very thin white head. The head dissipated (and disappeared) extremely quickly leaving a barely visible white rim on the edges of the glass.

Smell - Very hard to distinguish. Smells like bread, grain, slight "skunk" smell that so many others have referenced on this review page. Smell is neutral and uninteresting.

Taste - Initial sip reveals the beer's slightly skunky taste. However, it is nicely carbonated and refreshing when served cold from the refrigerator. It's easier to describe the taste by telling you what it's not. It's not hoppy; it's not sweet; it's not fruity.

Mouthfeel - Average and unremarkable. Mildly easy on the palate; not too carbonated and not under-carbonated.

Overall - Refreshing, simple beer that's easy to serve at a house party, at a tailgate, or a BBQ. However, it's uninteresting, unremarkable, and not worth seeking out...
