3.33/5  rDev +9.2%
look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

This beer pours a medium golden color with a small fizzy white head. The head fades a bit quickly. Aroma is mostly sweet corn but there's also a spicyness to it. The flavor is once again strong on the sweet corn taste but the spicyness is there as well. I think there's some hoppy spicyness to this beer. Very nice, but it could still use a little more. Body is medium but the lack of carbonation hurts. If this beer were better carbonated and had a little more hop spicyness it could really kick ass. As it is, I'd rather get a High Life b/c of pricing and the minimal difference between the two beers.

look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

Poured from the pounder into a weizenflute.

A: Perfect clarity, 1 finger head that settles into a thin disk. no legs with minimal soapy lacing. Easily excitable back to a 4mm head with a swirl.

S: Sweet adjunct, does not reek of corn, more graininess. A shortbread kind of note, with faint faint grassy American hop. Hint of sulphur hiding way, way back.

T: Follows nose, with sweeter grain notes with very faint grassiness.

M: Medium-full, with velvety undertone. not dry nor cloyingly coating. Ultimate finish is slightly biscuity.

O: Jones is brewing this at the old Rolling Rock Latrobe Brewing, and the water makes this taste more like a well-filtered Rolling Rock and not old Stoney's. Still, a good regional AAL.

3.04/5  rDev -0.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A: Pours a lightly hazy medium yellow with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation rising from the bottom of the glass and some faint straw yellow highlights. The beer has a half finger tall fizzy sudsy white head that reduces to a mottled thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with thin ring at the edges of the glass. Moderate amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Light to moderate aromas of sweet corn and grain adjuncts with a light hint of grassy hops.

T: Upfront there is a moderate flavor of slightly sweet corn and grain adjunct along with a touch of sweet malts. There is a light flavor of grassy and slightly medicinal hops which impart a light amount of bitterness which fades quickly. Very light hints of lemon citrus in there as well.

M: Just heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Sort of coats your tongue and lingers.

O: Probably a little more enjoyable than a lot of the BMC versions of AALs but nothing really special - easy to drink and certainly decent for the price ($1 a 16 oz can).

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: Medium golden color, with a small white head, which quickly faes to a dusting of white foam, and a small ring around the glass walls.

Aroma: Rather sweet with notes of caramel, bordering on candy corn, with some medicinal hop notes

Taste: Opens quite sweet, with a caramel undercurrent that lingers from start to finish. At the close of the taste, there is a slight hint of mild hop bitterness.

Mouth feel: Smooth, soft, and pleasant.

Drinkability/notes: Unfortunately, seems rather mediocre. It would benefit from a greater hop presence, and some toasted malt.

Presentation: packaged in a twelve-ounce brown glass longneck bottle, with a twist-off crown, served in a New Belgium Brewing chalice.

Serving type: bottle

Thanks to woodychandler for continuing to keep me up to date with canned beers. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some grains and corn detected. Taste is light, grains, a slight bit of medicinal flavor at the finish. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is about your standard adjunct lager.

Serving type: can
