look: 2.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Appearance - thin head, orangey/amber pour.

Aroma - has a doughy breadiness, perhaps denoting a higher grain bill? After a moment of set up, some vanilla notes come out - light, extract/artificial in nature or at the least very diluted. Still, I like vanilla, so it is a pleasant smell to me.

Taste - I'm thinking back to Michelob's winter bourbon cask ale I had years ago, and wondering if they just recycled the recipe using a lager yeast and renamed it. Maybe. This has a light vanilla sweetness, perhaps some bourbon/oak character, it is hard to tell. A bit of nuttiness as it warms. It does have a glimmer of hope with some different flavors, but not enough of any one worth going into detail over.

Mouthfeel - proper lager body and carbonation.

Overall - so many tastier options, why mess around with this? Well, maybe if you find some on the 50ยข shelf...
