Poured from big 750 ml can into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a straw colored brew with a huge diffuse white head. The head fades quite fast to leave only the lightest amount of lacing.

Smell – The aroma was heaviest of some malty aromas, corn, as well as a lighter caramel smells.

Taste – The taste begins of some bready and corn notes. The sweetness intensifies as the taste goes on with a corny and caramel sweetness coming to the tongue. These flavors take the taste to the end, where some flavors of a lightly bitter herbal hop as well as a light biscuit flavors come to the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the beer is on the lighter to average side with a carbonation level that is average. It is rather appropriate for the style as it makes it easy to drink and on the more refreshing side.

Overall –A pretty standard adjunct lager. Rather bland as there is not too much going on in the flavor profile section, but refreshing and easy drinking, making it a decent session.

Bottle poured into a pint.

A - A translucent gold with a thin, pale head.

S - Some barley and sweetness. Not pleasurable.

T - Some sweet malts hit the palette for a few moments only to fizzle out with some grainy hops. Finishes smoothly, I guess.

M - Light body with moderate carbonation.

O - This beer is like a sweet carbonated beverage. Nothing really here to offer unless you like bland sweetness atop of alcohol.
