Pours a clear light straw yellow with a thin white head that falls away quickly. Aroma is faint, corn and biscuits. Flavor follows the nose. Feel is light bodied. Overall just an average summer beer.

Looks the part: pale, gold-yellow, and completely clear with a shining brightness to it. A soft whitish head lasts as a layers for a minute or two and fades off. It doesn't reaally leave much by way of lacing.
As advertised, it's mild with a bit of sweetness and little to no bitterness. There's a slight note of leaf coming off the end, maybe grass, from a moderately sweeet beginning-middle that carries notes of light fruits and perhaps a touch of caramel.
The body is light and appropriately crisp, lively without being overcarbonated, and clean. There's not really anything lacking from the feel, and the body is right for the style. It may fade just a bit at the end of the sip.
Pale lager may not be great, but this as good an example as I've had.

A=Nice golden color, equal to most AAL's.

S=Hops, floral, citrus

T=Very watered down...not much not flavor at all.

M=Very little carbonation; smooth, and a bit slick...but no body to speak of.

O=Very bland and tasteless...hard to even call a beer...if not for a bit of aftertaste, I would have thought I was drinking water.
