There is nothing special about this beer. It looks yellow-orangeish in color. It smells of dry malt, bread,wheat. it taste of about the same things.The mouthfeel is crisp, light to medium in body, not very filling which is a good thing for someone wanting to drink a step up from the BMCs. Overall, it's really just an average compare to lets say their Hefeweizen or Oktoberfest which are so much better made beers.

Poured a very nice clean blonde color,the head a little lacking,however,the nice bread/malty aroma quickly entices all senses. A very mild yet complex odor and taste,just a wonder balance of malt and hops. Very easy to drink,no after taste,overall I love this beer, and many of their other formulas

Served from bottle into a shaker. Poured a pale golden yellow with a one finger pure white that subsided to a minimal amount slowly. Maintained decent lacing throughout the glass. The aroma was comprised of sweet malt, wheat, grain, spices, rice, fruit, and subtle alcohol. The flavor was of sweet malt, wheat, grain, spices, floral, fruit, and very subtle alcohol. It had a light feel on the palate with mild carbonation. Overall this was a decent brew. The aroma on this one was definitely not my favorite of this style. However, the flavor did a pretty good job of making up for this. The flavor was really nicely balanced, but wasn’t very complex unfortunately. Worth trying for sure as it is very easy to drink.
