This was an ok beer, but not memorable in any way. It would be a good tailgating beer to have with some bbq or nachos, but I wouldn't seek this out again. It's one of those beers I would drink if it's all a place had, but would never buy a bottle again.

I was generous in my assessment, there was no option for 0. Why even bother putting this mess in a bottle? Simply gross and "buttery" as another reviewer pointed out. Yuck.

Total diacetyl bomb. Tasted like licking the artificial popcorn butter you get at the movies off the bottom of the tub.

On the positive side, the new packaging looks nice.

4/1...pours clear gold see through, light white foam. Bright floral nose, sweet, fresh. Clean malty taste, light pils taste, small bitter to finish. Very nice.

This one pours a very clear and lite golden color. The head is shallow and short lived. There is no lacing down the glass.

The nose is crisp and moderate hops with some grassy notes and hints of bread. not much complexity here.

The taste is also average and dry with some earthy notes and a moderate hoppiness.

The moutfeel is a tad watery for my taste.

Overall not a great nor a bad beer. Just an average beer. I would say slightly better than Stella Artois.

Clear golden purity in the glass. Pours with minimal head. Tastes like cereal, a lot like wheaties or total.
