Crystal clear, pale yellow body; moderate carbonation; thick, sudsy, white head, some sticky fingers of foam line the glass. Pleasant, unassuming aroma of gentle malt presence with a tiny note of herbal hop presence. Plain tasting as far as the malt and grain go; moderate hop bitterness; a slight sense of lime. Light body; lager smooth; very mild sweetness; finishes semi-dry.

Generally a nicely balanced adjunct lager. It delivers great looks with a somewhat bland flavor but with a nice hop bitterness kick. Nothing exceptional, but makes for a great warm weather thirst quencher.

Pouring temperature: 41 °F; canning info: CANNED ON 05/23/22

Mostly clear golden active pour with two fingers of white foam that die down quickly, crown lacing. Corn and lime aromas. Corn and lime taste. That's pretty much it, I guess general sweet malt too. Paler and lightly hoppier in feel save the mouthfeel from having the same bland fate, but still uninspiring.
