From notes taken 01/08/17:

Clear, slightly amber gold. Off-white head, fairly fizzy at first but given a full pour, more fluffy and with moderate retention. Light grain and grass, some honey, pinch of lemon. Much the same to taste, extremely watered down. Better than your standard Bud but not by terribly much. Light to almost medium in body, lot of spritz and foam.

A pretty ordinary adjunct lager, but I find it better than most American macro brews. It pours straw yellow with a fizzy head that dissipates quickly. It smells like beer! Makes me think of college days. The taste is mainly sweet but clean and crisp, with a clean finish. Overall, this is one of my favorite beers to chug when it's hot, or have with food in a pub.
