Got a case of this beer as a Christmas present so I finally decided to crack one open. An 11.2 oz bottle poured into my pint glass. This beer pours a clear medium golden color. The white head is about 1/3 inch thick when first poured before quickly settling to a fairly thin ring lining the inside of the glass with a spotty film layer of foam on the surface. Decent lacing, the lacing provides a good amount of coverage in the area of the inside of the glass, but it thin lacing. has a sort of grassy, grainy aroma, not bad or offensive, just kind of meh. Has a sweet malt flavor upfront, followed by some grainy grassyness that again isn't bad or offensive and it sure doesn't taste like the beer is skunked, but is something I could easily take or leave. Rounded out with a slight touch of hops. I don't taste corn or rice grainyness here like I do in a lot of American macro lagers, so that's certainly a plus. Has a thin, crisp, light bodied mouthfeel with moderate carbonation. Just an okay beer, something that would be nice and refreshing when pulled out of the cooler in the summer time, but certainly nothing special here either.

Appearance: Pour a white one finger head that hangs around for about a minute. Golden color and some decent lacing.

Smell: Pretty good aroma but nothing spectacular. Some straw smell along with some skunk.

Taste: Not bad but certainly not great either. Some straw, barley, and a little bit of hops.

Mouthfeel: Good amount of carbonation and a solid body for such a light flavored beer. Decent finish.

Overall: Not a bad beer at all, but I do not see myself buying it again.

Looks like Busch Light when poured from the bottle. Tastes like Sierra Mist. It's kinda clean. I was expecting more copper taste like Heineken but this one is cleaner. It's fizzy like champagne. This would be a great beer to have while golfing? Or eating an almond raspberry salad on the back porch on a hot summer afternoon?
