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

Appearance: Poured into a shaker. Pours a clear light golden straw with a solidly foamy two finger head that dissipates relatively quickly to a thin foamy cap.

Aroma: Sweet cereal-y malt notes. Maybe just a hint of grassy hops?

Taste: Sweet corn and grain malt notes.

Mouthfeel: Light, light carbonation (a nice change for a beer in this style). Sweetness approaches cloying.

Overall: A simple, refreshing, relatively clean AAL. Could easily knock a few of these back on a warm evening.

Poured from a 16 oz. can into my Duvel tulip glass. Consumed on 8/21/13.

A – Big, smooth, white head that quickly breaks down into an almost rocky texture leaving some lacing. The body is a very attractive deep, golden almost amber color. There is a good amount of visible carbonation.

S – Exceptionally clean but to that point that is becomes boring. I'm only getting some slight sweet grains, but I rather the aroma be clean and boring than bad.

T – A fair amount of tasty flavor for an American Adjunct Lager. There are some sweet, malty flavors followed by a crisp, bitter finish consisting of a hop profile. While the hop profile is hard to identify, it is more than barely present. In my mind, that makes it an outstanding hop profile for an AAL. I also noticed almost a bit of spring honey flavor as it warmed slightly.

M – Mid to maybe even full bodied mouthfeel considering the style. Pleasantly stingy carbonation and dry finish.

O – Definitely outstanding for the style as it is an enjoyable AAL, which only makes it an about average beer. Nevertheless, I wish I could get it more easily in my area, because it deserves periodic rotation in my fridge.
