look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3

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.

S- Pale malts, slightly sweet, some citrus.

I bought a can of this at a Denver Airport kiosk. It poured a clear golden with white head that is leaving and not much lace. The scent was bread cracker like. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. Just a solid lager. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall I rated this for the beer style and it is definitely a solid lager.

On tap, poured into a pint glass. Light yellow, sticky lacing, a nice grassy smell, very easy drinking, no bitterness but not sweet either. Just a very good beer.

12 oz. Can

Pours a nice yellowish color, pretty nice carbonation, with a nice small thick/creamy off-white head, which leaves some sticky lacing behind. The nose is malty, yeasty. The taste is malty, yeasty. Medium body, with a nice little dry/bitter finish. Overall, a tasty brew.

Golden clpoudy yellow with light head, subtle scent, good flavor and a nice downhill drop through the throat, very nice. I like this one, very good and I look forward to having again.
