Too many times I get a summer beer that is too heavy to drink in the summer or has a foul back end. This is a very nice summer brew although not too complex.

A: [3.25] Looks a lot like Bud in the glass. The classic yellowish brown color. There is a 1/4 of finger of head but it is gone if you blink. The bottle lists the ABV at (4.5%) and there is a born on date (04/06/15). The born on date is really prominent on the neck.

S: [2.25] Creamed corn scent. It is still following the Bud play book.

T: [2.50] There is some sweet up front. The beer has no bitter at all. Maybe some oyster cracker taste and malt sweetness.

M: [2.25] The carbonation seems too high. The beer is watery.

O: [2.50] If I didn't pour this I would say it was an American Adjunct Lager. I have had some Blue Point offerings that I have really liked. This is not one of them. Even on a lawn tractor I might pass on this. There is just not much going for it.

Pints at Havana's in Winter Haven with supper. A little to "pale-ish" for my tastes, though it's an acceptable drink with dinner. I wouldn't have it as a stand-alone session beer.
