A: Clear gold color. Big frothy fluffy white head.

S: Grainy skunky malt. Not the best smell from the king of beers.

T: Malt. Lots of malt. Grainy, tangy, bitter.

M: Watery but carbonated.

O: There's a reason I stopped drinking this after my first try. I thought I'd be fair and give it a second go, but it really doesn't hold much appeal for me, even now. It's not the worst I've had (that belongs to Tsingtao) but it's certainly nothing I'd drink unless I was in college and living off of peanuts and 1 dollar bills. In my opinion, the king of beers is a peasant.

16 oz. Can poured into a 20 oz. Imperial Pint. After a long run of craft brews--I have found enjoyment in returning to crisp lager/pilsener beer. This is one of them.

A: Poured Aggressively, producing a decent head which dissipates quickly. Pale yellow straw colour. This beer doesn't win many points on appearance alone.

S: Smells of the can it was poured out of. Other than metallic aluminum, simple graininess hits the nose. Again, nothing special in this category.

T: I can't exactly pin down the taste. The beer has a simple crisp carbonation that hits the palate strong at first--but doesn't overpower. The taste has no overpowering qualities either. But, a nice flavour does produce in a thirst quenching way. Having a hard time saying what that flavour is exactly. It isn't bad.

F: Crisp. Carbonated. What you want a lager to feel like. Could be smoother--kind of foams up in the mouth sometimes, not something I'm a fan of at all when drinking a beer.

O: Overall, this is a nice beer to come back down to earth with after exploring the micro/craft brew market exclusively for some time. There are other lagers and pilseners to prefer, but for the american macro lager, I suppose this is the way to go. Not too bad.
