Crisp and light (not too light or watery) with an earthy hops finish. There's a hint of corny DMS, but this beer is brewed with popcorn after all. A fine summer beer.

Poured from the can into a Libbey style pilsner glass. Pop 18th May 2015, so it goes.

Bright dark brass yellow body and crystal clear with a minimal amount of rising carbonation. Head is very soapy but manages some good three fingers of froth and sudsy creation, and even manage a bit of a thick bubbled collar too with and concave indentation.

Mild nose for an aroma, a bit of grass hop bent with a little bit of spice. Not much malt character coming off of this or classic density, but some light airy crisp qualities might be coming. Not clean but also somewhat thick sensing but not easy to pinpoint. Doesn't hint of butter interestingly.

Palate matches alright on taste. A good first taste hits well, clean and full rich mouthfeel but relatively basic and solid. Palate doesn't have much malt character to it and almost comes to slight adjunct sweetness but not much. Hop hinting angle on the nose is lost on the palate with a real simple finish, mild grains and relatively tame.

I wasn't sure what to expect from this, but it comes off as more of just a real basic muted lager with nothing really that unique about it. Decent, but also forgettable, but better than a lot of other things out there for sure.
