4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
12oz stubby bottle into a pint glass. Part of the heritage pack.
Pours a clear dark yellow with a one finger creamy head. Tons of carbonation and good head retention for a light lager.
Smells of sweet corn along with a little bit of bread. Really nothing in the way of hops.
The flavor is sweet overall with some corn and cereal grain up front followed by a nice toasted caramel. Bitterness is very light with no hop flavor detectable. Finishes with a slightly sticky mouthfeel.
Overall I was pretty impressed by this beer. It is slightly reminiscent of Red Stripe but quite a bit cheaper. Very refreshing and plenty of flavor packed into this one. Wish I could buy it on its own.

Beer has a golden yellow color with a small head. It has a light malt aroma with some wheat. Taste is malty with some grain. Light hint of sweetness. Light beer that is an easy drinker.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a pale gold, with a large white head that dissipates quickly. Delivers what it promises, "lager with a hint of sweetness". Not as watery as the Fyfe & Drum I just tried, rather this has a creamy mouthfeel - a quality that seems the opposite of what one would look for in a summertime beer. Not very flavorful, but nothing offensive, either.

Interesting change for Genny. Had a different taste then most other Summer brews, wish it was still on the shelves.
