Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a Pilsener glass

S - Nice pronpunced malt, some sweet floral hops, best characteristic

T - Watery and bland, grainy, metallic

M - Smooth and refreshing, just like an AAL, easy to knock back

O - It's beer, that's about it

Skunky and sweet corn smells the tiniest amount of hops as well. It does have that skunky taste a bit with the sweet grainy corn malt and then ending with an almost metallic grainy bitterness/

Theres really not much to say about this beer its a light beer and its definitely drinkable. The off bitterness might set some people off but I know some of that is from the hops they do use in this beer so its not bad.

IT has a sweetness to it that makes you wanna keep drinking to balance out the grainy bitterness so you can easily go through a bunch of these if you wanted to. With that being said I'd take this over Coors or Bud Light anyday so its definitely better than those beers in my opinion.

12oz Bottle at Lavo nightclub at the palazzo las vegas

Appearance - Clear yellow colour with a small size fizzy white coloured head. There is an average amount of carbonation and there isn't much lacing. The head lasted for only a few minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Bread, apples, corn syrup

Taste & Mouth - There is an above average amount of carbonation and I can taste light malts, corn syrup, and a bit of an apple sweetness. That's about it, it's very light tasting.

Overall - The beer selection was weak, so I tried something I hadn't had before. Not good.. I wouldn't drink this again unless it was free and I was planning on drinking 20 of them while camping.

Enjoyed this 12oz bottle out of a large snifter glass at Woodmore Country Club.

A: Pours a straw golden hue with a thin 2-finger white head that quickly dissipates into a wispy lace.

S: Mild aroma of grains and hops. Thin nose – slightly skunky.

T: Typical lager flavor of mild grains and hops – slightly bitter and crisp.

M: Medium body and medium carbonation.

O: Typical lager – nothing I would grab again – only drank this one because it was really the only thing available.
