Draft at Western Collective, batch brewed in Idaho. Bright golden pour, skin of white head. Bready, grainy aroma, hint of citrus. Taste is more of tbe bready, biscuit grainy notes, straightforward lager with a decent, creamy feel.

Poured cold from 12-ounce can into a stemless wine glass to assess appearance. Very pretty clear golden color, with a finger of evanescent white head that disappeared without a trace. Aromas of apple juice, bready malt, and grassy hops. Lots of apple juice on the palate as well, with an understated sweetness that is mitigated by a pleasant touch of bitterness. Good carbonation, medium-light in body. The finish is clean and crisp, with no lingering off-flavors. This is extremely "poundable," very refreshing, and good with food. What could possibly go wrong?

L-Looks like any adjunct American lager. Bubbly with a small fizzy head. Straw colored.
S-Malt and some grape. Obviously there is some wheaty-ness, but nothing too deep. Doesn't really need to be though.
T-Wheat with a slight sweetness from the grain.
F-Refreshing and nice when it's cold.
O-Man, nothing really to see here. It's way better than any big corp adjunct lagers. There was literally nothing offensive about this beer at all, and it also had a nice sweetness with a good freshness so I can't hate on it. Just doesn't have anything interesting about it. Pretty much a game day chugger. I enjoyed it. If I'm going out to a lake somewhere this summer and it was available I'd snag it.

This is rated to style-dang good adjunct lager.

Had it from tap in a tall glass. Beautiful head and lacing atop a clear yellow body. Slightly sweet but fresh smell and taste. A bit bread and a pleasant slight bitter finish.

Yeah, it tasted best ice cold, but it was still good after it had warmed, something rare for an adjunct.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Appearance:
Crystal clear, straw color. Tons of carbonation rising. Thick bright white head that sticks around, leaves a good lacing.

Aroma:
Crisp and clean. Some sweetness, just a hint of corn.

Taste/Finish/Body:
Sweet grain, white bread, some corn. Clean lager yeast. Hop bitterness is super low. Finish is very crisp and clean, just a hint of dryness. Light bodied, well carbonated, refreshing, super drinkable.

Overall:
It's very good. One of the better American Adjunct Lager.

Can. May 22nd.
Typical light gold colour, not so long lasting head of foam.
Smells of grain and corn. Ever so light hint of hops.
Tastes like a typical AAL. Better than some, worse than others.
I don't get the Texas-Denver connection.

We just started selling 6 packs of this beer at my work, and after hearing my bosses good feedback, I decided to take a pack on my day off.
The look is as you'd expect of a lager, with a clear wheat-gold color and a foamy head.
The smell is similar but not as corny as some of the other lagers I've tried, with a bit more of a natural, almost crafty smell to it.
The taste is where you can really see a difference. It's a bit more flavorful in themes of the malt characteristic, and even had a slight hoppiness, but not so much bitterness.
The mouthfeel is nice and even, with a definitive lighter body than a typical Budweiser. Feels easier on the mouth than a pbr or even a coors.
Overall, this lager has much more character than any I've tasted so far. The drinkability is high, and while it is a bit pricier than the BMC norm, it's certainly worth getting a taste of.
