3.2/5  rDev +4.9%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Poured into a New Belgium snifter

A - A bit more orange than your usual lager, one finger WHITE head and some lacing

S - Apples, pears, some spice, floral hops, rice, a bit of barley and some sweet malt

T - Fruit cup, rice, hops and malt. All very usual

M - Light, fluffy, carbonated and lingers for a bit. Sweet through and through

D - This is super easy to drink and for $3.99 a sixer of pint cans, awesome! Haha.

Final thought - If this beer werr to cost anymore, so not worth it

3.4/5  rDev +11.5%
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.

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.

This is an American Adjunct Lager? I always thought it was an all-malt. Either way, it's bland as hell. Dry and bland with a little bit of hop characteristic. Nothing to write home about and nothing to buy again. Smelled like nothing. Tasted like next to nothing. Don't know what's unique about this beer aside from it being very dry.
