look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

A- Pours a light to medium yellow-gold in the glass. High clarity with about a 2 finger head that doesn't stick around very long at all. Little lacing.

S- Very light and grassy scent is primary and dominant. No hops detectable in the smell, and maybe a hint of skunky, light-struck scents. The scent does not linger and is very light.

T- Pretty much your standard AAL flavor right here. Very light malts up front, even though I hesitate to call them malts. Then there is a progression towards the lighter, grassy grain notes before moving quickly to a crisp finish that has very minimal hop flavors.

M- Very light and highly carbonated, this is the weight and feel of either a summer or college party pounder. Won't fill you up. Actually a little smoother than most AAL's, and I suspect that is the reason for the "draft" branding.

Overall, just a standard AAL. Not much to write home about here. What can I say? Drink these fast, get drunk, forget what you did the next day.
