look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a chilled pint glass. Thin yellow color with a quarter inch head, which dissipated very quickly with a touch of lacing. Smells much like a typical american corporate beer. Tastes somewhat better than the smell. Again, typical corporate, but a hint of pale coming through with a bit more body than expected; hops detectable. Overall decent lager. Would be refreshing on a summer day.
