Look: Pale yellow with bubbly white head, effervescent and leaves a lasting ring of lacing
Smell: You get a little bit of the malt bill and not a whole lot else
Taste: Sweet, slightly yeasty, very mild hop profile with a slight bitterness
Feel: Medium body, bubbly carbonation
Overall: Would take over a mass market beer any day. Good backup beer or just a simple, no thinking beer.

Crisp
Refreshing
Great malt
Just sweet enough
It's like a Motörhead clone. A clone of a band famous for doing the same song a variety of ways for 30+ years. This is the band cloning and copying that. Just because it's small variations on the same few ingredients doesn't mean this isn't operating in a genre as capable of profundity as any other.

T: Toasted and white bread, a light bitterness with some floral hops at the end.

F: Crips, light and clean, very easy drinking.

O: A good easy drinking summer lager.

Pours a golden straw yellow, good amount of carbonation. Smells of grain and corn. Excellent tasting, grainy with just the right amount of bitter kick to offset the malt. One thing I noticed about this beer is the mouthfeel, not comparing it to a macro but the thing that sets this beer apart from a macro version lager is its mouthfeel. Its richer and fuller in a good way. You definitely know your drinking something with a little more thought put into it when it hits your tongue.
