Straw filtered with little carbonation, and 5 fingers of off white head, with great lacing.

Corn, corn syrup, malts, hay and straw.

The taste follows the nose. A decent bitterness on the finish.

Medium body, with little carbonation.

Got at BevMo, drinking in Redding, Sept 12th, 2018.

Pours a bright clear gold with very little head that quickly settles.

Smells of grain, corn. Taste is very similar.

On the dry size, highly carbonated. Pretty crisp and refreshing.

Overall I’d consider this a very neutral beer....it’s not offensive, but there’s also not much to love about it.

I tried this beer at the Beer Hunter in La Quinta, CA. It poured a clear golden with white head that did not leave any lace. The scent had touches of grain. The taste was nicely balanced and easy to drink. The mouthfeel was lighter in body with good carbonation. Overall its an easy drinking sessionable beach/lawn mower beer.

330ml Bottle at Umeda Sky Building, Osaka, Japan (¥500):
Quite an enjoyable beer that was basic but surprisingly fresh & drinkable, going down easily with little sign of any skunk or off-flavours. There was some subtle sweetness from the corn & touches of biscuit malt worked well with the usual grassy hops & hay flavours. It's enjoyable for what it was & is definitely one of the better mass-market pale lagers out there, I'm glad I stumbled across this one.

IMHO, to rate a AAL to style, you have to embrace the grainy qualities. This one pours a deep straw with a soda pop head that dissipates without lace. Nose is very grainy, with a touch of corn and honey. Taste is light and crisp without and skunkiness. Taste is grainy as well, with a very light malt sweetness and a little hay and citrus. Overall, nothing special, but not a bad AAL if you want a lawnmower beer on a hot day.

From a bottle dated best before 5/7/17. Clear golden color with a finger of white head. Smells of malt and grain. Light feel. Taste has grainy sweetness, lemon, and a slightly bitter finish. Compared to other AALs, this is not bad. Compared to beers in general, it rates a "meh".

For the style it looks about right. It is pale yellow and fizzy with a white head that fades quickly and leaves no lacing. The aroma is decent for an AAL with grain, grass and a bit of citrus tartness. The taste is sweet, grassy and it is surprisingly bitter at the end. Pretty decent for the style.
