Review as I drink. Really disappointed to find out this is an adjunct, not a vienna lager. Oh well.

app- darker yellow. Golden, almost. Looks almost as bubbly as champagne. Head pours bright white and disappears in seconds. Sound familiar?

sml- Grainy, corn smell is prominent, as is some weak malt. Grassy, I suppose would be a word to describe it. No hop, of course.

tst- Sharp but inoffensive hops kick the back end. Up front is the malt and grain sweetness. The rest is water. It's actually a decent flavor for what it is.

mf- Watery, light, flaccid.

Could I drink this? I think so. I might even be okay with it. But I wouldn't stock it in my house. It's just too weak, too scared to be a beer. That's why I dislike adjuncts and even some lighter lagers. Actually, a pure lager would be a godsend right about now. Bitterness is there and is kind of impressive. I think I admire it, I just don't like it.
