2.42/5  rDev -28.6%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from 12oz can into a pint glass.

Appearance: clear straw hue with a very light effervescence and almost no head. BMC?

Smell: grainy and slightly sweet with very little hop character. Not enticing.

Taste: grainy and slightly sweet with very little hop character. I feel like I'm repeating myself. I understand when craft brewers want to make classic macro styles, but I feel like 10 Barrel was a little on the nose with this one.

Mouthfeel: light-medium body with a decently refreshing carbonation. It's fine.

Overall: bleh. I'm not particularly into this beer.

Nice can art, I imagine this is what beer would look like is a dystopian society.

Beer pours a crisp hayfield color, minor head that quickly recedes.

Aroma is of mild pilsen malt and corn mash.

Taste is a mix of a traditional pilsner and a domestic macrobrew. Not awful but not a lot there. Nice mild bitter finish.

Mild to medium carbonation.

Not awful, but intended for mass consumption instead of sipping.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

12oz can poured into 10oz goblet. Poured a lightly hazy pale yellow, with thin, white head that immediately dissipated and left no lacing.

The aroma was mostly sweetness, with some underlying grain. On the tongue, the beer basically tasted like a craft version of a basic BMC brew. As the pour lasted though, the beer developed a certain harshness that detracted greatly from the taste.

The mild was the typical light body that we expect from an AAL. Both drinkability and the overall enjoyment of the brew were what was expected from the style. Try it. Or don't. Whatevs.

12 oz can.

This is an American style, fizzy, yellow beer. It's a bit more malty than usual with a typical hop load. High, fizzy carbonation. Shows that 10 Barrel can brew a Bud/Miller/PBR sibling.

For starters, the can literally looks like a generic beer from the 80s - not sure if that is by design. It's also called a "craft lager" which is like saying "gourmet marshmallow" - just sayin. The smell is as expected: corny malty and sweet. The flavor is light, easy drinking as a lager should be but there is something the finish that leaves me a big underwhelmed. There is almost a flat plastic taste in the finish vs. a clean crisp finish typical with most lagers. I mean lagers are typically underwhelming but this one I was hoping for something a bit more.

Clean crisp lager with a mild malt sweetness and hint of juicy ester. In a sense, it's a craft High Life, but that's coming from a guy with a soft spot for High Life. I'd have a few and a few bigger beers.

look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours a finger of head on a clear light straw body.
The aroma is a metallic grain smell.
The taste is moderate metallic bitterness throughout.
The texture is crisp and fizzy.
Not too enjoyable.

Dude, it is what it says it is. Crafts answer to macro adjunct lagers. I would drink this over the big three anyways, even if 10 barrel is pretty much macro now (AB InBev)

A thanks to the captain of the canquest, woodychandler, for this beer. Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a bright yellow color with a 1 inch head. Smell is of malts, some sweetness. Taste is clean, malts, light sweetness, extremely refreshing. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a fine beer on a warm summer night.

From the 16 oz pint can stamped 23 May 17. Sampled on July 14, 2017.

It pours a heady golden-yellow with excellent clarity. The head fades quickly to a ring.

The aroma is grainy, syrupy, grassy, and a hint of apple or pear.

The body is light to medium and fairly smooth.

Like the aroma there is a grainy quality to it but it is also sweet with a mild to moderate grassy hop finish. Semi-dry. Overall it was easy to drink and emulates the American Pale Lager style charmingly.

3.25/5  rDev -4.1%

Clear pale yellow with one finger of white head. Some splotchy lacing.
Smell is bready malts with a touch of sweetness that might be corn.
Taste is sweet bready malt with just enough grassy hops to balance.
Body is close to medium. Carbonation is just enough.
Finish is slightly dry and mildly sweet.
Just slightly above average for the style. Although the hops do build a bit the more you drink.
Reminds me of some of the better Canadian lagers.

12 oz can picked up at the Boise pub tonight.... White can with black labeling that says, "Pub Beer". I love it. No information on the can except the ABV.

Pours with a decent white head that drops back pretty quickly... the brew is straw golden.

The nose is light pale maltiness with some balanced lite spicy hoppiness.. maybe floral hoppiness too... tough to discern.

Flavor has a good maltiness that is just balanced by the hoppy bitterness and again only a light floral hoppiness.

Body is bigger than a standard PBR or High Life... carbonation is also a little lighter IMO.

Very drinkable.... A 6'er of this will go away quickly in this triple digit heat.

Hope this sticks around.

3.5/s across the board.

1 PINT 9 FL. OZ. can
Served in a pilsner glass

This beer pours a brilliant golden color. It is topped with several inches of white head that leaves no lacing.

It has a sweet and biscuit-y aroma.

The taste is similar. It is not as sweet as the aroma led me to believe. I do get biscuit flavor.

Moderate to thin mouthfeel

It has a rust belt lager quaintness to it.
