Clear, light golden color. Small head, lingers for a bit. Some lacing. Citrusy aroma amd taste. Crisp. Very much like a light beer. Slight tartness in the aftertaste. The bottle says, "specially brewed for the unique flavor of an ale and a lager"but I'm not getting it. This is a garden-variety pilsner all the way. Drinkable but unremarkable.

Aroma of cereal, grass, corn, leaves, corn, malt. Taste sweet corn, malt, biscuit, caramel, grains. Ok Pale!

A: Pours a clear straw yellow color with 2 fingers of head that quickly fades down to a thin cap

S: A bit of cereal grain and barley up front, along with a bit of sweetness and corn. Not too much else

T: Starts off with a bit of herbal hoppiness along with the cereal grains and barley malt. Goes into a bit of sweetness and light corn syrup notes. Finishes with lingering light sweetness

M: Light bodied with moderate-high carbonation. Fairly standard for the style

O: An easy drinking brew for a get-together or gathering. Has decent flavor and good drinkability. Not bad, but certainly not my first choice either
