Drank from a 16 ounce can.

Look - Green, yellow, and red blend nicely for a good mix of color. The diagonal stripes also make it look extra nice.

Smell - Inviting hits of mild sweet malt. Smells like a decent and relaxing beer.

Taste - Sweet and slightly sour malt. Tiny bit of peppery piney hops bitterness to round it out on the end.

Feel - Very strong carbonation, on the verge of too much but still bearable.

Overall - An all-around decent beer. Good alternative to some AALs if you want an easy to handle drink for beer newcomers.

Poured from 16oz can into glass. Stamped on bottom of can is '100318'.
Clear, medium amber colored body. Two finger white head settles to thick, creamy cap. Leaves behind spots and small strings of lacing.
Aroma of sweet malts, similar to green apple.
Taste is sweet and bready malts, and a little green apple fruit. Sweet, mild hops. Very little bitterness.
Medium, creamy mouth feel. Leaves a little lager bite at the end. Good carbonation, with lots of rising bubbles to feed the head.
Very easy drinking lager, with quite a bit of bite in the taste. Quite refreshing.

Poured into pint glass, A darkish copper color, nice head that settled quickly. I smelled the mellow malts when pouring. Nice clean, kind of sweet malt taste with little bitterness. Clean mouthfeel as I would expect for this type of beer. This is a great beer for this weekend in WI. Hot and steamy with an ice cold Grain Belt Nordeast. Cheers!

L: A brilliant gold pour releases streams of bubbles rushing to refresh a 1" white cap with fair to poor retention.

S: It smells of faint corn, light grain, bread dough and very light bread crust

T: lightly sweet, starting with light fruit, bread dough, and a hint of bread crust. A very mild bitterness arrives mid-palate finishing slightly drier with a touch of tartness from the carbonation

F: medium light body and medium high carbonation

O; a drinkable beer with slightly more flavor and character than an American lager, but not much
