A light gold body with slowly rising carbonation bubbles and and decent, lasting white head; globs of foam sticking to the glass. Smells of old grass clippings. Light grain flavor with a corresponding level of hop bitterness for balance; slight metallic aftertaste. Light bodied; crisp, clean and dry.

An old favorite from my young man days. The beer is still pretty drinkable if unexciting. It borders on blandness but manages to deliver a modicum of flavor. Nope, it wouldn't be my first choice for a light lager beer, but depending on other options, Moosehead is still a fair consideration.
