Sampled this past Saturday on 11/21/15. Comes in a 12-ounce bottle. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a 12 ounce flute glass.

brew pours a typical pale-golden yellow in color with a thin white head that is common for this brew style. Very minor lacing is seen after each sip. Aroma is of sweet grains and corn. Taste follows the nose also for this one. Very drinkable and much better that a "Bud" was this is the same style. Lighter-bodied with average carbonation. Overall, a decent brew.

A - Apple juice amber body super clear. Teeny tiny fine bead head with some lacing. No continued carbonation. 2.5

S - Slightly reminds me of smoked gouda. Some faint vegetal off smells. Generic lager malts. Vienna malts gone bad. 2.25

T - Like a marzen gone bad. Malty and highly caloric but stale and hay like. 2.5

M - Not enough carbonation. Otherwise nice thick smooth malty mouthfeel. 2.75

D - Meh. Unremarkable. A good enough substitute for Bud or Miller but hardly worth seeking out. 2.25
