2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells light and toasty, some bitter hops notes. Taste is light and refreshing, somewhat of an acrid or sour thing going on too. Nothing special, appropriately priced.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This poured a light golden color with a white head. The aroma contains some corn and light citrus. The flavor contains some whipped cream, corn, and a good malty backbone. The finish is slightly sweet. Overall it beats BMC but not much going on with it.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Light in color with thin white head. To me this is rival to you macro lagers without that corn ingredient. Really didn’t get much out of this one.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 oz. bottle. Pours a medium gold color with a slight haze to it. There is a small, quickly fading head. Very light nose with hints of malt and perfume. Medium carbonation with a medium-light mouthfeel. A little vegetative note, more perfume, perhaps a light bit of citrus, and a touch of dryness all on the palate. A medium short finish with a bit of lingering bitterness. I am not sure what is supposed to be premium about this as I found it rather forgetable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Pours light gold with a thin white head. Light grainy malty aroma. The flavor is crisp, and has a hint of sweetness, but mostly just bland grain like malt. Rather generic, but easy to drink.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (Total Wine & More-Ft. Myers, FL). Poured as a small white head with poor retention, transparent body, very little carbonation observed, spotty amounts of lacing, and the hue was yellow. The aroma was malty, fruity, sweet, lightly spicy, lightly hoppy, some toffee, and crisp. The flavor was sweet, fruity, some malt and hops, toffee, and a crisp, dry finish. The mouthfeel was tingly and this is a light-medium bodied beer. Easy to drink, somewhat refreshing and a so-so session beer.

Pours clear yellow with a foamy white head. Smells earthy. Tastes the same. Not much to say.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Overall a decent lager. Bit of a dull taste to me, but not bad. I tend to like beers with more bite to them.

Not a fan of more hoppy tasting beers but this beer strikes a good balance between bitterness and drinkability. Very smooth and somewhat sweet. Light orange color and mild aroma. Good Beer!
