Pours a medium copper color with a white head. Retention is fair, receding to a light topping and a bit of lace . Aroma of spent grains and corn. In the taste, adjunct rice and grain mix with faint malt. Hops are somewhat sour but faint enough to hang in the background. Light bodied and crisp mouthfeel though watery. Overall, this is a very average offering.

Optics are what you would expect. Not much of an aroma to speak of outside some generic caramel malt. Flavor is in the same vein, though there is a bit of a fusel punch at the end. Pedestrian but fine if knocking back a few with some buddies.

Out the can and in the glass the brew appears amber-brown with a mahogany hue. Looks thin, with an off-white head that thins to a rim.

Smells sweet with an herbal hops aroma. Toasted bread. Faint in the nose with subtle hints of brown sugar and cinnamon.

Lightly hopped. A little caramel sweetness, a little hops. Simple, but balanced. However, watery and thin.

Notes: similar to Yuengling Traditional Lager, but not as good and not as hoppy.

A: Pours I am amber color loads of Bubbles that make a nice soft layer of foam which quickly dissipates.

S: Sweet malt and Light hops, nice balance between both. cops have a white citrusy burst to them.

T: the first thing you taste as sweet mall then a slight corn taste. followed by a light citrusy hop flavor.

M: mouth feel is medium to light bodied, slightly carbed.

O: Overall a very drinkable and smooth character with a decent price tag attached.
