Good stuff if you simply want to drink a tasty GD barley pop.

12 oz can dated BB 11/14/18. Poured into Budweiser shaker pint :-D

Appearance is right on cue. Crystal clear straw-gold with just enough "gold" to give it some deep pop. The head is creamy and 1/2 finger, and recedes to a fingernail and stays there. Swirls of the glass leave brief sparse semi colons all around the glass.

The aroma brings the typical sweet malt profile of creamed corn, flaked corn, and barley, but adds a beautiful element of "dark peach" to the equation.

Man! I forgot what it was like to drink easy beers. There's not much to ponder, you just want to slam it down. It's delicious, in a simple way. To sip it slowly would be a shame. There's some apple pie right off the bat, followed by some flaked corn, slight celery, then a really nice toasted bread finish. Slight corn sweetness and plain cereal on the finish.

Feel is crisp and effervescent (haven't used that word in awhile), with a discomforting starchy cling that hangs on at the finish. Probably the beer's biggest flaw.

Overall, as an ADJUNCT LAGER, this beer excels. It's a fantastically flavorful, clean, delightful treat. Would I drink it every night? No, I don't typically drink lagers. But it stands up there with some of New Glarus' great lager offerings that implement those nice fruity flavors and toasted bread notes. Almost zero bitterness. Not watery. Easy to drink. I'd send some in a trade but people look down at lagers (don't judge a can by its style). Pretty damn decent for what it is.

On-tap @ The 1up LoDo in Denver, CO.

Straw yellow with lively carbonation that keeps its white head in tact. Not much to speak of in the aroma but some faint grainy malt and floral hops. Clean, mild flavor that's inoffensive but lacks much character. Its dry finish with a medium-light body makes for an easy sipper.

I tend to rate things within style. I also am really digging lagers and this is one of the best in the state (to be fair there aren't a ton). This is extremely well balanced with grainy, cracker, slightly sweet malt and what tastes like some noble hops. This taste like a really well made Pilsner, although not quite as sharp on the hops. It's crisp, dry but not watery which is an accomplishment for it's 4.8% ABV. I think because it's "just a lager" and it's widely available, this beer will never get a lot of love on here.

Poured from 12oz can into a dimpled mug. Best by 10/13/17, so we're safe there.

Appearance: light golden hue with no haze, a light effervescence and a thin layer of frothy white foam. A little extra fizz would be nice here.

Smell: lightly sweet and malty; not bad or anything but without much in the way of distinguishing character.

Taste: sweet, right up front, with a bit of a malty character and a bit of a fruity character that I can't exactly place. It's alright, but it doesn't blow me away.

Mouthfeel: medium body with a decent carbonation and creaminess.

Overall: like I said, this is not a bad beer, but it just doesn't have enough going on to really appeal to me.
