Malty aroma, some noble hops. This could be a German-brewed beer, but it's too thin for that.

It has a sweet Pils malt aftertaste, and bitterness up front of Tettnanger, but if it were sold in Germany, it'd be on par with Oettinger, a REALLY cheap beer sold in Germany and usually seen in the hands of street people, and that's not good.

Heavy corn taste and smells like a Taco Bell. I dare you to double blind this with a Tecate. Literally liquid Fritos.

First had: can, sample tasting at Edgemont Beer

Golden-straw color, clear, with a thin layer of bubbles on top. Plastic cup, so no real lacing going on. Aroma was pretty "lagery," sweet with bready malts, almost doughy, and some light floral hops. Taste of cereal grains, sweet, more of the bready malts from the aroma, light floral hops. A pretty basic lager. A bit bland and dull, no real crispness to it. Light body. I guess it was okay, if you like lagers, but I wasn't really digging it, and I wouldn't even call it a lawnmower beer. But it was a free sample, so I couldn't turn it down.
