I poured this very average beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer was a nice golden color but poured a weak head that was gone very fast. The beer has a yeasty bready smell and the taste was just plain beer. Not good enough for another try. I will not buy again.

Bottle BB May 2013, poured into a shaker. Acquired as part of a beer of the month gift.

A: Solid golden color, two finger white head recedes to a skim, a little bit of lacing left. looks like an AAL. maybe a shade darker.

S: Slightly floral, bready pale malt, kinda grassy, a bit of a generic grainy smell.

T: Floral hops mix with some ever so slight citrus. Bready, grainy, pale malt. Its a bit sweet and minimal bitterness. Mild, easy drinking blond.

M: Feels lighter bodied and the carbonation is medium, but not spritsy. Smooth and easy drinking.

O: Nothing fancy here at all, just an easy drinking sessioner. Goes down without any problems. Might purchase again if I need a no frills/pool/shoot the shit kind of brew. Would go good with a pizza, or some ball park dogs. Definitely a good intro for BMC drinkers.

Poured from a bottle into a tulip. Off-white one finger head that dissipates quickly. Light tight lacing also dissipates quickly.

Faint fruity aroma. Nothing special.

Light flavors and mouthfeel...again...nothing special. It wouldn't be bad with lunch...it isn't heavy or overpowering to spoil your lunch.

Not bad. Not great, but hey it's not Budweiser.

I feel bad about leaving a review with such little information...but this beer is just as informative and exciting.

I wouldn't activly look for this beer...but I wouldn't turn it down either.

Cheers
