Type: 12-oz. bottle
Glass: Clear 15.25-oz. pilsner glass
From: Brother-in-Law Ron
Price: N/A
Purchased: N/A
Consumed: Dec. 26, 2015
Misc.: Bottled on Aug. 4, 2015 at 6:48 p.m.

Poured a golden, pale, clear color with 3-to-4 fingers of white, fizzy head. Lots of bubble streams coming up from the bottom of the glass. Very good amount of uneven, foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Excellent retention. A great looking beer. (Sight - 4.50)

Smelled normal lager malts - corn, cereal, sourdough, honey, light grass, crackers and faint apple. (Smell - 3.75)

Taste was nowhere as good as the nose. Got a toned down watery version, leading with corn cereal (Kix or Corn Pops), followed by honey and light grassy grains. Unimpressed. (Taste - 3.00)

Light body. Thin texture. Average carbonation. Abrupt, watery finish. (Feel - 3.25)

I might have overrated this a tad, but it had its moments. Would not have it again on purpose though. (Overall - 3.25)

Aroma is slightly sweet, with crisp lager yeast character and a bit of a corn note.

Flavor is lightly metallic, a touch sweet, finishing fairly doughy and lightly bitter. The lager yeast is really prevalent. Better than a lot of the macro lagers.

Smell of corn (?) Buscuit.

I got a sample bottle of this the other day at work.... not much cold around the house so thought I'd give it a try... (Does anyone else find it humorous when you have to precede a rating with your disclosure of why you would be drinking something of that nature in the first place?)

Pours a weak yellow color. Aroma is difficult to find. The flavor is almost non-existent throughout the sip. It does somehow remind me more of beer than, say, tonic water, but I cannot explain exactly how. The only real notable flavor is a bready aftertaste. Even that disappears quickly.

Mouthfeel is light, but the beer is nicely carbonated.

* I feel as if I was rating this specifically compared to other Gluten-Free beers (which I have never tried), there is an opportunity this would be getting a much better rating from me. However, since it is being listed as an American Pale Lager, I am rating this while considering it as such.

This beer actually has a very nice look to it. The beer has a bubble head that dissipates quickly. The beer itself is a flat out solid gold color. The look is pretty nice.

The smell is pretty nice and simple. Sweet barley note with a light bitter hopness to it. Nothing super complicated but still good.

The taste is nothing spectacular compared to all of the other beers on the market but still good in its own right. The beer has a very sweet malty taste and light but bitter hop note. The hop note is fairly light but strong to keep the taste from being too malty.

The mouthfeel is absolutely fantastic and great. The beer has a light body but with enough weight to give it some body and depth. The crisp carbonation feel makes it fairly refreshing. Overall, a pretty good feel for a lager.

Overall, a much better beer than the ratings let on and certainly light years beyond any adjunct lager. Definitely worth picking up on a hot day or if you're looking for something simple to drink with flavor.
