A - Pours a straw yellow with a white one finger head that dissipates very quickly no lacing.

S - Yeast very very very light hops not much going on.

T - I haven't had many adjunct lagers at all, but this one seems extremely good towards the style, light hops, wheat, and buttery corn on the cob. No skunk at all which surprised me because of the green bottle.

M - Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation considering I don't like over-carbonated stuff.

O - Wow, I would like to drink this with some Chinese food.

I had this with some Japanese food the other day. Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. It is straw yellow with a thin fizzy white head that dissipates immediately leaving no lacing. It smells slightly skunky with a hint of Noble hops and somewhat grassy. The taste is similar to the nose as there is a hint of hop bitterness but is dominated by the malts. Not a lot of flavor. The mouthfeel is thin and carbonated. Overall, nothing special but I didn't expect it to be. I will probably never drink this again.
