Do not know why this beer has sun low ratings. I don't think people realize it os not suppose to be a flavor monster. I love this beer when it is freeking got outside and I go in to one of my favorite restaurants and get a 24oz glass and it is freezing cold. It goes down super smooth, light hoppyness. Great beer if I'm looking for a light yet complex smooth flavor.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Poured from 24oz tall can into a pint glass.

Appearance: light golden hue with no haze and a moderate effervescence. Head poured a quarter inch of white foam which dissipated immediately. Eh.

Smell: bland, slightly sour grainy aroma. Not enticing.

Taste: slightly sweet, grainy and a little bit sour. Not totally disgusting, but it's bland and uninspiring.

Mouthfeel: light body with a light-medium carbonation. Refreshing enough.

Overall: moderately refreshing but not good enough to warrant drinking a ton of it. That said, this is by far not the worst adjunct lager I've had.
