A- Good retention. Has a pale yellow golden hue with perfect clarity.

S- Cornish aroma, maybe some grain as well.

T- Solid in a light body. Grainy with mild hop bitterness. Clean on the palate with a smoothness that will make you want to take another sip.

D- Easy to drink with mild flavors and a good wash of crispness. A tasty American Lager.

A Large white head forms that turns thin and foamy which stays around for a while. Body is a very pale yellow and clear. No carbonation seen and not lively at all. Surprised by the head actually.

S Pale malt and some fruity esters but pretty subdued. Thats about it.

T Somewhat sweet in the front that fades to a light sweet flavor that I associate with an adjunct lager. Not great tasting but a solid standby for the style

M Thin and watery, very easy to crush. Heavy carbonation with small bubbles.

O Welp its a High Life, the champagne of beers.

12-oz bottle into weizen glass

A - 1 finger bubbly white head atop crystal-clear body of straw yellow with moderate carbonation bubbles

S - malty corn smell; just a clean grainy nose

T - corny malt flavor balanced with a touch of generic hop bitterness, corn and a hint of alcohol combine for the finish

M - light/medium body, high carbonation; quite refreshing

O - High Life is bland on all counts, but close to par for the style. It would be refreshing after mowing the lawn, but not very enjoyable for much else.
