Purchased: Single from Publix, Huntsville
Appearance is a very light blond and clear beer. The head is white and about 3 fingers, with good retention but no lacing.
Smells consist of hay and grassy hops, plus light pilsner malts.
The taste is lightly bitter and has the same grassy quality as in the nose. Also has some spiciness and a touch of unpleasant vegetable notes. Overall not very flavorful.
Mouthfeel is crisp with a high level of carbonation. The body is light and aftertastes are lightly sweet and slightly bitter.
All around, this is a simple and average lager, but makes for a refreshing drink on a hot summer day.

Poured from a 12oz. can into a plastic cup.
A slightly hazy straw color with a little foam and not much head retention.
Smell is slightly bready, maybe a hint of yeast.
This tastes better to my palate than most American Lagers. A pleasant sweetness from the malt a bit of a hop bite. Nice.
Mouthfeel is typical lager.
Overall, I give it a bit of a bonus because I'm DRINKING IT IN THE BAHAMAS! It's actually the perfect beach beer. Easy drinking, smooth and tasty.

12oz bottle into a pint glass.
Pours a clear darker gold with a thin, wispy white head. Really poor head retention and no lacing to speak of.
Bready aroma with some hints of flowers, hay, and grass. Somewhat reminiscent of a European lager.
More bread in the taste. There is just the lightest bit of toast in there along with grass and hay from the hops. Bitterness in on the light side and the finish is extremely dry and crisp. This has to be one of the most refreshing beers I have had.
Overall, what an awesome lighter lager! It is so crisp and has just enough flavor to keep it from being boring. A great beer to drink in hot weather and just blows away Red Stripe
