2011 vintage, so rating set to current average.

Corn adjunct aroma, reminiscent of an American lager. There's a hint of peach and pear esters.

Flavor is similar, an odd pairing, seemingly of an American lager malt bill with Belgian yeast esters and a touch of candi sugar. Very easy drinking, for the style and abv, and no noted oxidation. Belgian esters are pleasant.

I like this better than the score reflects.
