4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Poured out of bottle into pint glass. Clear with slight yellow color. Developed short head on pour that lasted a minute or two after.
Smells good for an American Lager. A slight note of apple or pear. It doesn’t have that harsh smell that accompanies so many of the lagers made by others.
Taste: Soft and smooth. I can’t pick out any distinct flavors though.
Less carbonation than other lagers, which is good. Goes down easy.
I could drink this all day long. It’s a session lager, so it’s doing its job well. Personally, I would tend toward with their Session Black Lager because of it drinkability combined with a little more flavor.

Bottle sample at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Thanks kerenmk. Clear yellowish gold. Aroma of cardboard, graininess and a bit of skunk. Sweetish grainy flavor with cardboard and a bit of bitterness. Rather light-bodied.

3.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a clear light gold yelow, white head quickly disappears. Smell is light, sweet and pleasant. Tastes of slight hop bitterness, honey, sweet corn and a pleasant malt flavor. A slight astringent note can be detected. Very affordable and above average for this style. As the name suggest it is highly sessionable and you will be reaching for a second not long after you pour your first. A very well made to style beer, it's just not a style a lot of people are crazy about.
I have enjoyed this beer for many years. It is always stocked in my beer fridge for any occasion. Pairs well with almost any food due to its light neutral flavor profile. It is a beer I will hand to non beer drinkers and they often are swayed from the opinion that all mass made lagers are tasteless garbage. Added bonus is that the short stubby bottles can fit on a rack the same height as a 12 oz soda. Cheers.

As others have said, this is what industrialized lighter lager should be. Corn and soft grassiness on the nose and flavor. Super light bodied, dry and definitely watery, which makes it extremely crushable and desirable for a hot day. Light, thirst quencher that wont break the bank, this one does what it’s supposed to!

Pours clear gold with a whipped white head.
Sweet grain malt aroma.
Taste is sweet, honey, grain..a little fruit, very malty.
This is what popular American Mass-Produced Beers should taste like.....

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Aroma is a little on the skunky side maybe I got a bad bottle or something. Taste of sweet malt but cloying on the palate as well as some astringent hop bitterness. Overall disappointed but maybe just got a bad bottle I hope as it was part of a basket.

3.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Clear light gold with a big white head. Typical pale lager aroma with a hint of fruitiness. Taste follows suit and adds some grassiness and bready malt. Crisp palate. Excellent representation of the style.
