I've had many beers.... Both lagers and ales.... From porters, dunkels, stouts, tripels, l sorts of lagers, and much more.... Not a big fan of many lagers.... Mostly an ale guy.... Prefer "nourishing" beers over "quenching" beers.... I like top-fermenting brews more so than bottom-fermenting brews.... To me, this lager is not too much of my liking.... It doesn't have much of a taste to it.... Yes, it's crisp, clean, and refreshing.... It just doesn't have much to it.

Poured from a can into a pint glass.

A - Pretty standard light yellow-golden color of inexpensive lagers, not much head that didn't last long.

S - Light hints of corn, sugariness, of course the metal of the can, also standard for an inexpensive beer of this type.

T - You get a touch of corn and grassiness, definitely a watery weakness, but better than most beers of its same type, imo.

M - Also similar to other beers like it, and the colder it is, the better. Crisp but icy, if you made a chewing motion you might expect to hear crunching like snow or crushed ice.

O - I don't know what it is about this beer exactly, but there's something about it that just seems higher-quality than others it's related to. Nothing spectacular, but if you just want something you can take in quantity to a get-together or a night of hockey-watching that's a little better than average but not too expensive, this is it. Better than the sum of its parts.
