Look- Pale gold with a finger of bubbly white head.

Aroma- Sweet corn, white bread, no noticeable hops.

Taste- Like the aroma, dominated by cereal grains (mainly corn) and an odd sweetness that lingers for a while. Sweeter than most macros.

Feel- Could use more carbonation. Felt flat and watery.

Overall- A little too sweet for me.

A thin yellow beer with a light white head. Much better on draft than by bottle. Torture yourself if you really want to.

Pours a thin yellow with big white head and thin lacing. Tastes of cereal grain and corn. Smells of thin light beer and some vague malts. Not a great beer. Not even a good beer. Thin mouthfeel.

Pours golden yellow with a white head. Smell is none existent. Has a sweet corn taste too it. A little bitter after taste. Mouthfeel is watery and light. Overall, this beer is mid table beer. However, I prefer this too most adjunct lagers.
