12oz bottle undated poured into a can glass at fridge temp. This bottle came from a closed 12 pack so light damage is not a factor. The beer is straw colored and bright. The head is white, short lived and leaves no lacing. The aroma is slight grain and more specifically corn. The taste follows with a corny malt base, no bitterness and a very subtle taste approaching tart on the end. The mouthfeel is good for AAL with lots of carbonation, a hint of oily slickness and moderately dry finish. Overall, okay. I wouldn't buy this regularly due to price point, but I have had many AAL with many more flaws. Just for fun, I squeezed and dropped a lime wedge in after my review. It certainly makes a difference, but whether or not it's a welcome change, depends on your tastes.
