Nothing impressive. Mild smell, taste, and feel. Slightly citrusy hops at first but loses all flavor halfway through.

Had on draft at the local baseball game and was better on draft than the can, but still was hard to finish.

1st half of the beer is a solid 3.5, second half dropped the score to 2.5 for me.

Middle of the road American lager in the style of Budweiser....

Ice cold this would be ok around the pool...that being said, it's more expensive than Budweiser which it's trying to mimic so I know which one I would choose...

Very pedestrian and rather boring....there's just not enough to keep me interested here...

Slightly sour finish...just sort of less than ordinary...

Picked this up on my trip while passing through the Diamond State at - where else - a Walmart since they're in nearly every town there. Didn't expect much from a Lager from Dixie but sure enough, this was pretty enjoyable and certainly better than the Macro examples of this style that tend to flood shelves across this country.

However, this was clear and straw like those more popular examples of the style as the head was minimal and the carbonation not as present as only a few streams of tiny bubbles could be seen in the liquid from the get-go. Part malt, plenty hops, and capped off with subtle sweetness, this felt as much as Cream Ale as a Lager and that was true once I took a few sips of this. Yes, there's grain, bread, and a bit of earthiness here but gosh, it's so refreshing to have an Adjunct Lager without the...adjunct! Good luck finding much of any corn or rice here as this was clean, crisp, with a hint of mineral water and stickiness in the aftertaste that allowed this to stand out from it's BMC counterparts.

Some cracker and grass came through in the back and aftertaste but darn, this would have been easier to review on here had it actually been able to stay in my glass. Yeah, this was hard to pace myself through as I enjoyed it an didn't feel the alcohol in it at all. Thank God I have a few cans left that made it home with me as I look forward to having this again. Even without a date on the bottom, this felt fresh and the label was as stylish and appropriate for this beer and brewery as could be. This deserves to be rated higher in it's category on here as this was a clear winner that would be great year-round, and maybe even good enough to redefine the style. Glad I picked this up on the road!

Poured from a can. Straw in color with a white head and lacing. Smells of malt, grain and a hint of sweetness. Taste follows the smell, very smooth and enjoyable.

Pours up to a creamy head that falls to thin layer and minimal lacing. Clear medium yellow.

Low clean malt and low hops, which smell of lemongrass. Not corny or adjuncty.

Crisp and dry with low grainy malt upfront with an easygoing counterbalance of soft noble hop bitterness.

Light mouthfeel, CO2 is nominal. Very slight astringency but not bothersome.

A solid easy drinker. Don't know whether or not this was categorized correctly. It is not a German Pils, but not a typical AAL either. Good job!

Pours a clear golden color. There was minimal head when poured from the can. What was there was white, but not long lasting.
The nose is kinda citrusy. Nothing too strong, but the hops are the star of the aroma.
Taste - The hops seem to take a lead, but on the backside is a pleasing malty sweetness.
Body. The hops and malt do linger in my palate, and the body is decent. Not even close to watery.
Overall this is a pleasing, and easy drinking beer.

Thanks Russ.
This was poured into a becher pint glass.
The appearance was a nice looking golden light yellow color with carbonation seen rising at a nice pace. Sly half finger's worth of white foamy head sliding off at a decent pace.
The aroma had a sweet biscuity to cracker-like malty sweetness up front with a stealthy amount of grassy hops and a sweet earthiness.
The flavor mildly leans towards a crisp sweet maltiness up front. Mellow lemon to earthiness flowing in underneath. The aftertaste was crisp sweet and cracker malty.
The mouthfeel was between light and medium bodied with a great sessionability about it. Carbonation felt good. ABV felt as projected. Smooth crisp sweet finish.
Overall, odd AAL since I didn't get any "sweet corn" anywhere. Is this better than the ones I had before and I can congratulate the owners of this brewery for creating a stellar lager? I might have to.

Pours a bright gold with 2 fingers pillowy pearl colored head. Pretty good lacing head retention

S: Grassy, a little perfume,

T: Slight pear sweetness, a little white grape, dryness & a touch of soapy hops up front. Grassy, a little light grainyness & dryness as this warms. Finishes with sweet grainyness & dryness

MF: Medium body, crisp carbonation, good balance

Drinks easy, not enough flavor to really keep me interested was hoping this going to skew more German
