Poured from a 12oz bottle into a pint glass.

A: Its a very pale yellow with little to no head and no lacing. Not a very remarkable appearance.

S: It has a hoppy and slightly spicy aroma. Again nothing too special, but not bad.

T: Hoppy and slightly grainy flavor. It is similar to a Budweiser or something similar.

M: Nice carbonation and decent drinkability but nothing spectacular.

O: A decent beer but nothing entirely spectacular or remarkable to talk about with this one.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pale yellow, with decent foam but little lacing.

Smell: Grainy with a hint of spice.

Taste: Pale malts, with just enough sweetness and hops to give it a good balance.

Mouthfeel: Light bodied and crisp with a minimum of aftertaste.

The Verdict: Not bad. A good, solid, well rounded lager that would make a good session beer, party beer, or kick back in the hammock after mowing the lawn beer. Nothing out of the ordinary, but nothing to complain about.
