Notes / Commercial Description:

Superior light beer. Does not lack flavor and has an extremely crisp and clean finish

25 ounce can into lager glass, canned on 8/24/2017. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice and pleasant aromas with good balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Fairly crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from lingering bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and light-medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is good. A bit thin, but not watery finish. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 4.3%. Overall this is a good light lager. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Tastes like a more flavorful version of Bud Light/Regular. Supposedly all malt, and it's noticeable. Clean malts and solid earthy hop balance for the style. Definitely one of the best macro light lagers I've had. A nicely enjoyable offering, and great style example.

I bought a six-pack of this on my honeymoon, which I drank along with the near-case of leftover champagne. Enough said. Hard to find recently. I would buy it again, though.

I think people just have not given it a chance, also confusion of the select 55 which is nasty.
However select is smoother and less after taste. I love this beer and I don't think it's getting the attention it deserves.

Listen...it's not the greatest but I like a light beer on occasion where I can drink 2-3 and not feel full or in the early stages of wanting to take a nap. On a hot Summer day it's refreshing...and there's nothing wrong with that.

More golden than the pale yellow that's common. Smell, eh, not much, rice, grain. Taste is clean enough, typical adjunct lager. A little bite and carbonation on the feel.

You know what this is. Would I trade one imperial stout for three of these? No. Would I rather have a nice craft ale? Yes. But it's very Consistent, relatively affordable, and ok if you drink it Cold. It is what it is and for that reaSon I'm ok Giving mid range marks
