weitz15 (382) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Light everything. Almost no taste, aroma, malt presence, or hop presence. Generic in every way.

Block (1489) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 12, 2011
Light aroma with an equally light flavor. Pretty ordinary pale lager but lacks the weird fruity flavor some cheaper pale lagers pocess.

pkbites (694) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 20, 2011
Smelled like cake batter. Had some dryness to it, fruit, grain, and bakery. Looked no different than any macro. A little unusual flavor but nothing offensive. Slight watery mouth feel. Extremely quick finish. The flavor disappears immediately upon swallowing.

Pailhead (5062) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Bottle: The aroma is light and consists of grain, mustiness, and a touch of straw. It pours a pale yellow with a half inch white head that lasts a minute or so. The flavor starts lightly sweet with a touch of corn. The finish has some faint grain and grass notes. Pretty bland and pretty close to tasteless. Light bodied with lightly fizzy carbonation. Nothing offensive, so I suppose it could be an okay thirst quencher on a hot day.

obguthr (4073) - Staunton, Virginia, USA - JUL 31, 2010
Corn aroma. Pale yellow, headless. Light lemony tartness, weak malty finish. Weak.

Steve_Brew (6) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - FEB 17, 2010 does not count
Pillowy white head. Sweep hoppy aroma. Almost tastless aside a slightly sour fermented backdrop that is just enough to let you know youíre not drinking a club soda. A snap of tasty hops jump out towards the end of each sip, but itís brief...very brief. Would be great for a college kid to throw in the line up somewhere between the 3rd or 4th Bud Light.

   AROMA 4/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 6/20
Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 15, 2010
From bottle. Stale metallic aroma, with some corny notes and oxidized hops. Light sweet pale corn-malt notes. Pale yellow clear, dull, with thin white foamy dissipating head. Medium-light watery body with medium-high carbonation. Starts a bit sweet, with corn and mild pilsner malt. Light carbonic acidity and mild fruity hops to it. Finish is lightly sweet, fairly clean, with a mild bitterness. Mostly dull. Reminds me a lot of the pale lagers of Europe. Cold is better for these.

ben4321 (4092) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Location: 12 oz bottle from Trader Joes (Short Pump), 12/14/09

Aroma: Aroma has some stale grain, crackers, some floral
Appearance: Pours a clear, pale yellow color with a wispy white head
Flavor: Taste is weak, some sweet macro-like flavor, very mild hops
Palate: The body if this one is very light, almost non-existant
Overall Impression: I didnít realize when it said "ordinary" on the bottle they were making an attempt to compliment their beer, but ordinary would certainly be a compliment to this weak attempt at a beer. It will remind most of your standard macro swill. Donít bother...

WabashMan (1014) - Noblesville, Indiana, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Very mediocre. "Ordinary" is hardly something to shoot for among beers, but this didnít even stand equal to most "ordinary" beers Iíve tasted. Thin, watery, and more reminiscent of a BMC beer than something youíd expect to find amidst a decent selection.

Bottle. 12 oz. Honestly, one of the worst beers I have ever tasted. Pure garbage. Aroma smelled like straight urine. I had to pour it out. Avoid at all costs.
