1.57/5  rDev -15.1%
look: 2.25 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.25 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 1.5

Pours hazy golden, minimal head with ample, champagne like carbonation. Smell is sweet corn, metal, white bread. Taste is bland, step up from MGD, a bit more acidic, I get a pervasive postage stamp glue flavor. Mouthfeel is cidery dry. This is a churched-up BMC, don't expect any flavor or character from this.

Into a pint glass. Hazy, light straw colored with two fingers of head. Head quickly gone though.
A strong alcohol smell (weird for the low ABV), caramel and lemon sugar cookies. Not particularly pleasant.
The taste has a drying effect, sweet dominates and light sourness in the finish. Amazing combination but not enjoyable.
Fizzy and sticky texture. Light bodied.
Too sweet and light with an unpleasant smell/taste mixture.

Pours to a sudsy white head that lasts and very pale but slightly hazy straw color. Aroma is acidic, metallic, oxidized malt and hops. Flavor is a slight bump up from cheap light lager. Not much there but faint grains and metal. Mouthfeel is light and pleasant. Overall, this beer is not up to craft beer standards. It is certainly drinkable but has enough flaws to make it not up to commercial standards.
