Bought this at a HyVee in middle Missouri. Only bought it because I've never had it before.

Extremely underwhelming. Smells off. Taste is cloying sweet crystal malt with little to no bready finish. Hops are non-existent. Taste reminds me a little bit of bud light platinum.

Will not repurchase. May not even finish the 6-pack.

poured from 12oz bottle into pint glass

A-amber colored with a less than finger head that fades quickly to a partial ring

S-faint carmel malt and bread but nothing that really stands out

T-starts out with nothing much like any BMC but this one actually provides some flavors as it stays in your mouth like the smell it is a little carmel and bread

M-ok carbonation a little thin though

O-not bad for what it is, I have definitely had worse and will probably get some more of this

Sampling right now on 1/16/14. Promoted by Hy-Vee's here in the mid west.. Single bottle cooled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a pilsner glass.

This brew doesn't list the alcohol content (ABV) at all, so I am guessing around 5.3%. This "Vienna Lager" style brew pours a pretty amber in color with about a finger of foamy off-white head. Some lacing was seen with each sip. The aroma of caramel hits your nose at first and bread. the taste is about the same with a good caramel malt taste. No harsh or bitter 'hoppy' taste at all as I wasn't sure of how this one was going to be. Carbonation is right where it should be. Overall, a decent brew.

Pours to a golden, coppery look. Not much aroma, no matter how far you stick your honker toward it. Well-balanced amd good feel, but it ia lacking something, wish I could put my finger on it.

I poured a bottle into a pint glass.

Appearance- Clear amber color with about a 1/4 inch of quickly disappearing head. Hardly any lacing at all.

Smell- Faint aroma of caramel malt and bread.

Taste- Bread-like flavor with some caramel malt sweetness and some hop bitterness at the finish.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied with a light amount of carbonation.

Overall- Just an average lager, not bad but not great either.
