A: The beer is slightly hazy pale yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high white head that died down, leaving a patch of bubbles on the surface, a collar around the edge, and a thin film covering the remainder of the surface.
S: Light to moderate aromas of rice adjuncts are present in the nose.
T: The taste roughly follows the smell and has flavors of rice along with hints of floral hops and a light to moderate amount of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little crisp on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This is a good "craft" representation of an adjunct lager. It has a healthy dose of hops, which provide bitterness in the taste and mask any sweetness from the adjunct malts.

Can dated 7/17/2017. Poured into pint glass. It pours a hazy straw color with a thin, milk-white head and soapy lacing. The smell reminds me of Budweiser, probably due to the rice. I also smell some faint cereal and light hops. The smell is where the comparison to Bud ends. This is much drier and hoppier. It has a faint taste of lemon peel and a slightly bitter, slightly sour finish. Only as the glass warmed did I note any sweetness from the rice. Because it's unfiltered and recently canned it has a super fresh taste. The flavors are much sharper and more distinguishable than in mass produced AALs. It has about as light and crisp feel as imaginable. The carbonation is pleasant and at only 4.9% you can drink it before, during, and after cutting the lawn. I commend Kings County Brewers collective for taking on a much derided style beer and producing one that's truly "craft:" flavorful and really enjoyable to drink.
