2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 bottle. Hazy, deep gold color with yeasty residue on the bottom and a small, white head. Aroma of pale malts, butter, caramel, some spices, and a lot of barnyard scents too. Taste is basically a followup of the aroma, kind of malty with a touch of butter, vanilla, and cheese. Medium body, thin texture, and average carbonation. Finish is a tad sweeter than the rest but also a bit more yeasty - hardly noticeably could be just an effect of the circumstances. Overall the beer is alright but as the description says, nothing more than a better substitute for common pale lagers.
