Lean yellow brew, nicely carbonated. Grain character all way through. Not much to expect but not too bad either. Good while playing slots.

Pours a straw yellow, good carbonation, not much head. laces nicely. Light aroma. Nice balanced taste, flavorful. good mouth feel. Nice bittering on back side. Would like it a bit smoother. Not a bad beer overall.

12 oz. can thanks to WillRunForbeer. Hazy cloudy gold with spotty lacing. Aroma is corn husk and lager yeast.

Flavor is about the standard for adjunct lager. Rice, grain, shunky yeast, with a funky finish. American lager indeed.... No thanks. If you want to brew craft beer, brew a craft beer!!

Pours light blonde color. Taste is somewhat bitter with a not so pleasant after taste. Not something I would reach for.

Can from my trip to Vegas. Shared at my place. Pours straw with a white head. Aroma of adjunct lager. Taste of adjusted not lager. Don’t bother.

radarsock (1101) - Massachusetts, USA - NOV 1, 2014
Thanks, WillRunForBeer, this shit was drinkable but made me want to punch a seal. To oversized snifter, it pours a pale white-yellow with which a fluffy head barely a finger in length stood. Aromas of LME, depression, noble hops, wet spring grass, and cardboard. Tastes much the same,

"the manage to not jack up the look or aroma of this one as much, but the flavor is still subpar. just generic,not offensive. if i’m drinking this style, i’ll still pull a labbats, molson, or coors before this...and for less $."

PorterPounder (5960) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Las Vegas, NV - Total Wine - Summerlin - 12 oz. can. Slightly hazy light golden pour, soft white bubbly head. Aroma of grain and fresh lake water. Standard lager flavor, some grassy notes, a bit of nuttiness, some biscuit-like breadiness. Mouthfeel is crisp. Refreshing after a day of hiking in Capitol Reef National Park.

tmoreau (2784) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - JUL 31, 2014
12 oz. can poured to a Czech-pils glass, displaying a fairly clear, golden color, with lively effervescence to the rising bubbles, a fairly persistent, frothy, white head, and ribbons & spots of lacing. The nose was light grain & Pils malt, with a bit of corn scent, and a touch of sweetness. Light bodied, with a seltzer-like quality to the carbonation, the taste presented a low hop bitterness, retained the hint of sweetness, and offered a bit of creaminess to the mouthfeel, which helped elevate the thinner texture. Also sensed just a touch of lemon in the flavor? No complaints as a light, sessionable lager.

maxwelldeux (4082) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JUL 13, 2014
Can. Pours a somewhat hazy dark golden color with a fairly thick off-white head on it. Nose has some corn in there, as well as a smack of sake, which I take to be from the rice. Taste has a bit of sweetness throughout, but a moderately harsh sake taste that is off-putting. Not actually enjoying this at all.
