Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a nice straw color with little head. Smells slightly of grain, but not much else. Tastes of a regular adjunct lager, but has a fuller taste than most. Carbonation is good and goes down smooth. Overall, an average beer.

12oz bottle

Pale yellow with a froth of white head. Bubbly and effervescent with a few spots of lacing.

Grainy and bready in the nose with cereal. Light touch of lemon peel and steely malts.

Faint crisp hops with plenty of graininess. Kind of like cereal with a bit of hop flavor and some underlying notes of bread. Finishes somewhat refreshing and clean.

Lighter medium body, well carbonated, pretty watery and fast on the palate. This isn't bad for an adjunct, but it's not what I'd consider to be a good beer either.
