12 oz can. Light grainy lager, refreshing with clean taste and medium smooth mouthfeel.

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.

Poured from a 12 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a pale gold with a small white head. The aroma is AAL corn and grain, but a nice aroma. The taste is crisp and very smooth. Like a Miller Lite but with flavor. Overall, I believe this is the first adjunct lager I have had from a micro brewery. It was a good beer.

not a bad brew, I like when craft breweries do this kind of thing, taking a page out of the BMC book. I certainly like this a lot better than anything those big guys make, but its a pretty average beer even if it is a craft one. yellow and clear in color, but it looks flat, and there is no head on it at all. unimpressive for sure. it smells alright though, a little corny sweet maybe, but pretty standard. two row barley and just a slight bittering hop presence. the flavor is fresh, which I like a lot, mild cereals and a little sweetness like the nose suggests. grassy hop on the finish, something of the European persuasion there, and even though its woefully under carbonated, I find it refreshing because of how light it is. more bubbles would be ideal, but the light body and low alcohol make it real easy drinking, a good segue into or out of a session of heavier beers. good not great, which is my general consensus on 21st amendment overall so far in my experience. nothing has really floored me, but none of it has been bad...
