Touted as a tailgate beer, I'll treat it as such, being as that it was only $1.49 for the can. Nowhere on the label does it say anything about being a "Vienna Lager".

It looks peachy golden with honey tints, a 2 finger head with mild rock, light lace.

Smells of skunky cereal, and a little grass. Skunked grass. Nothing more.

Luckily the flavor is a little better with a decent malt flavor - namely rice, corn, and barley in that order. Straw and hay also permeate, slight bread crusts towards the finish with the slightest pinch of yeast. As the beer warms a few degrees (we are talking a matter of minutes) the skunk comes out in the flavor as well.

It feels crisp but borders on medium bodied which is nice; zero creaminess; zero parch, slight crisp semi-dry on the finish.

Overall thoughts : Is it better than Bud Light? Hell yes. But there's several better tailgate session lagers for the choosing.

Poured from 12oz can into a clear mug.

Appearance: medium gold hue with a very light haze and a pretty strong effervescence. Head pours a thin layer of frothy white foam; not too bad.

Smell: lightly caramelly and rather "beery". A decent take on the style, if kind of boring.

Taste: a pretty uneventful Vienna lager; a bit of caramel character and some basic lager beeriness. It's a bit like some of the mass-produced examples of the style, and while it's uninspired it's not like it's bad or anything.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a pretty good carbonation and creaminess for the style.

Overall: maybe not the most exciting thing on the planet, but decently drinkable. Could be a decent tailgate beer.

12oz can with Seahawks colors on it, poured into tasting glass

A — Pours a clear and pale yellow color, no real head to it, minimal lacing.

S — Smell is a bit weird and vegetal, almost sweaty and salty, quite grainy as well.

T — Taste pretty muted and one dimensional, just a bit of a grainy sweetness to it.

M — Light-Medium bodied, somewhat lingering finish.

O — OK overall, but really just underwhelming for the style, doesn't really hit any of the marks.
