look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

Poured semi-vigorously from the can into a standard Turbinator style glass.

A: Big bright white head and copper body. Nice looking brew and pretty on point for the style. minimal lacing and a finger of head that lasted a while.

S: Some graininess with a hint of mild esters. Also, some very mild grassy hop notes.

T: Some mild tea notes with very middle malts, some sweetness due to corn. Slightly bitter. Some light floral notes also peek about the edges.

M: Creamy without being overly full. The carbonation is perfect, and lends the brew to a slightly refreshing note. Very mild bitter finish with that floral ultimate finish. Pretty much infinitely poundable at such low ABV.

O: I really like this style and I really like this beer. I used to have Yuengling Lager as my go to canned format, but this has less of that bubblegummy estery thing going on and all the right malt, yeast and mild hops flavors. I do not see why this is not more popular out in Western PA, and certainly more popular than Yuengling it should be!
