First had: on tap at Legend

Here's the one for people coming in and asking "What's the closest thing y'all got to Miller Lite?" Straw-yellow pour, clear, with a small cap of white bubbles that fizzled out almost completely. Weak aroma of corn sugar and light floral hops. Taste of grains, corn, lager yeast, light hops lacking any crispness or depth. Light body. Any more than a sampler is essentially undrinkable.

12oz bottle poured into a stemmed pilsner glass. Pours a deep transparent gold. Lots of bubbles rising through this, feeding the 2-finger width head. Aromas of wet grains, sugar cookies, lemon rind.

Crisp, clean mouth. Easy drinking, though this actually feels a bit heavier than expected. Sweet beer right off, bready flavors, some husk, and a touch of citrus noted. There's an odd flavor I can't place. Whatever it is, it make me think twice about having many of these on hand. There's so many better clean lighter beers I could get. Probably won't revisit this one.

12oz bottle poured into a pint glass. Enjoyed at home.

A: Hazy golden color with a medium-size white head, which dissipated rather quickly.

S: Sweet-smelling with hints of citrus (lemon) and sweeter malts and a hint of toasty-ness. Perhaps some caramel and/or brown sugar as well. Aroma is pleasant, but not overwhelming.

T: Sweet and bready on impact, with some of the citrus flavors emerging in the end for a pleasant taste experience. Subtle aftertaste that resembles the front end -- a sweet maltiness.

M: Light body and sufficient carbonation. Unremarkable.

O: Solid, if somewhat mediocre, lager. Easily drinkable with limited after-taste, and the light body would allow for easy enjoyment with a variety of foods. Definitely not an irresistible beer, but certainly not bad.

Poured from bomber into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a medium golden color with a gigantic white head. The head was huge but faded fast, so the pour had to take place in multiple step additions. After fading completly the head left only a very light spotty lacing.

Smell – The smell is light and is of a bready an lighter sweet fruit/veg aromas of a apple and corn.

Taste – The taste begins of bread and caramel malt sweetness. Soon flavors of a lighter citrus nature come to the tongue. Mixed with the citrus are some flavors of an earthy taste. These flavors diminish the caramel flavor as the taste advances but a sweet corn and malty flavor takes it place. .In the end, a pleasant sweeter (for a lager) and very lightly bittered taste is left on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is on the lower and thinner side with a very high level of carbonation. The carbonation and body are both very good for the brew and make it quite refreshing and easy drinking.

Overall – Not too bad. A bit on the sweeter side for a lager, but refreshing and very easy drinking none the less. It has nice flavor transitions and a nice feel, which when coupled with the lighter and more refreshing body make for a good session beer.
