poured as expected. slightly sweet taste, made better by addition of a lemon slice. Will revisit this one in the hot summer months. I have noticed their watermelon beer is only drinkable on 90º+ days.

As an AAL this thing is tasty. Very pale yellow with a quickly disappearing white head and no lacing. The aroma is pleasant with a nice malt sweetness for a lighter styled beer. There is a nice bright, faint lemony scent and some sweet corn flakes notes. The taste is surprisingly sweet and has a nice hint of corn with a clean slightly bitter hop finish. If you know someone that won't drink craft they may drink this. Not really my style but a solid beer.

Very light and drinkable. I had it in the 21st variety back and it is really very different from the other beers in the pack. If I could get a case for summer I think it would be a great beer for the beach. The can design is pretty great as well.

Enjoy by: 6/4/16.

Pours a hazy light yellow with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Tiny streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of grain, earth, and grass aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, earth, grass, and slight frosted corn flake flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a good level of carbonation with a crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty good beer that is tasty, light, and easy to drink.

Serving type: can.

A: Pours a golden yellow color with a fingers worth of head that slowly fades down to nothing

S: Some nice fruity notes along with the bready maltiness and some corn adjunct sweetness

T: Follows the nose. Starts off with some fruity notes and quickly transitions into the bready maltiness along with the typical corn adjuncts and moderate sweetness. Finishes with lingering malty notes and corn

M: Light-medium bodied with moderate-high carbonation

O: Definitely solid as far as AALs go, with the drinkability to boot. Could be very refreshing on a hot day. Save it for the beach

12 oz can poured into a Mad Elf snifter. Enjoy by 2/12/16 printed on bottom of can. Part of a mixed 6-pack - I picked it up because I hadn't tried it before.

Pours a straw yellow color with no head. Tons of tiny bubbles rush to the surface. Aroma is slightly fruity, with no hops or malt sweetness detected.

First sip has a hint of pilsener-like malty sweetness with almost no body whatsoever. Zero hops detected. However, it does taste very clean with no off flavors at all... not an easy feat for many breweries. This is a pure lawnmower beer, and it isn't half bad... except I'm sitting indoors in January.

This was the wrong beer to drink as Winter Storm Jonas bears down on me. Maybe I'd enjoy this more sitting outside at the shore in the heat of Summer.

This beer was included in a variety pack I purchased at Costco. Hard to believe a craft brewer is selling such an inferior beer. Look: straw yellow, smell: slightly fruity, taste: weak very little there to please my taste buds, Feel: like I might use for cooking not drinking.

Sticking strictly to adjunct lager specifications, this one is on point all the way. Piss yellow out of the can, dish-soapy bubbles for a head, no lacing, and enough corn to make you think that you're drinking a cob. This is very light-bodied as well, so I'm sure that it makes for a great lawnmower beer or as an intro to craft for someone that only drinks Natty. Other than that, safe to say that I'll be cooking with the other two from the mix 12 pack.

Just had a Victoria while waiting for my take out; unfortunately, it was better. This was too sweet for me, while very representative of the style, the body was off and/or carbonation was too low. Corn, grainy, sweet.
