About what you would expect- light, sweet grain and straw but diluted down to a thin, beer pong/beer bong worthy chugger.

Can, bonused by some dillweed :). Pours pale yellow, small fizzy white head, some lacing. Aroma is fear and water. Flavor is water, corn, water. Water. Very light sweet, light bitter, no real flavor going on at all. Weird. Light body, high carbonation.

There are worse things in the world than mass produced gutter beer. This one does have a very faint fruit hint, maybe the people who say apple are right. I donít know really Iím just compelled to write this. I ran out of mine and she said I could have hers, hahahaha!

Terrible sample pour... Thanks for nothing Luke. It smells like dirty water, maltish. No hops... Flavor is dirty and unpleasant. I quit.

Max comes through with a sick BMC tick. Pours gold with a white head. Plain and actually relatively clean, with low sweetness and plain grainy notes. Really not that bad with almost no "off" notes.

Bottle at Maxís. Pours a clear yellow body with no head, some minor light white lacing. Aroma is dirty malts, cereal, corn and plain grass. Mouthfeel is lightly carbonated and a touch dry and grainy. Overall, not too offensive.

Leighton (12580) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 18, 2014
Bottle shared in Hoboken - huge thanks to Max for this one. The aroma has some simple dry cereal notes, paper, lemon. Light sweet flavor with some white bread, slight hay, cereal. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet finish with some doughy white bread, minimal bitterness, cereal. Meh.

Draft at a dive in the middle of the midwest. Itís cold, itís gold, itís beer like. For some reason they had the same thing on tap, in bottles and cans, but I couldnít care to taste the others.

So clear, so light, so tame. It has a white fine bubbled head w/ good staying power and tons of lace. This was served to me super cold at the brewery and in this condition it was exceptionally light and crisp. There is not much going on here aside from a faint note of apple amongst the miniscule contributions from grassy hops and Grape-Nuts malts. Unless you consider the apple note a flavor flaw--and many do--this is pretty much devoid of any problems aside from the fact that it was brewed to be pretty much tasteless but it is exactly what itís supposed to be and I respect that.

Draft pour at the Anheuser-Busch Biergarten in St. Louis. Pours a pale clear gold with a white head. Pale malts, a lot of hay, with grass and lemon. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel that finishes dry. Not much to say here. Itís fine for what it is.
