Bottle. Better than some standard domestic lager but that’s not saying much. Still rather plain.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours gold with a thin white head. Very much in the Helles-influenced grouping of American craft lagers, with mildly sweet bready malts, some grainy hints, and faint floral bitterness. Relatively clean and easy to drink.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Pours clear, wan yellow with a thick and frothy but effervescent white head. Aroma is crisp and malty with a subtle fruity undertone. Flavor is malty, less fruity than the aroma - nothing special, but refreshing. Texture is weak and not very fizzy. Definitely not the brightest star in Ballast Point’s constellation, but will take the edge off a hot day.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Right away I get that grainy aroma I get from most lagers. This brew is super clear and super blonde with no real head. It's taste is grainy with slight sweetness and a very light bitterness. The body is slightly heavy for a lager in my opinion but it is a very decent brew.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Looks and smells fine but that's all. Grainy flavor. Far too sweet. Palate is heavy viscous. Not good.
