Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 6/10
Palate: 2/5
Overall: 9/20

Poured a clear sparkling pale yellow with a large fizzy white head that was mostly lasting and had fair lacing. The aroma was pretty straight forward for a lager, it consisted of grain malts, piney hops and a soapy yeast. It tasted lightly sweet and grainy at first and ended about the same with a mild bitter hint at the finish. Mouthfeel was light in body and watery/creamy in texture with a fizzy carbonation. Overall just a basic lager with not a bad flavor, nice on a hot day.

    Mark We used to drink this all the time at the beach in FL. A better alternative than Corona.

    KajII I agree, I actually bought a 6 pack the other day for something a little lighter.
