3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at PP Carlsbad. It pours yellow wit ha lasting white head. The aroma is grains, lemon, wheat, and a bit of corn. The flavor is crisp and clean with fresh baked bread and a hint of noble hop, corn, and grain in the finish. Nice light lager.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A: The pour is a clear, golden straw color with a short lived white head.
S: Lots of adjuncts, particularly corn. There is a bit of a grassy and straw-like hop note, perhaps some floral qualities too. Sweet apple juice and a touch of cooked grain. Quite a bit of lager yeast, too.
T: Really heavy on the corn and a little vegetal. Cooked grain with lots of straw and a bit of grass. Sweet apple, grain, and sugar. There’s a lot of yeastiness here too.
M: Fairly light in body with a medium to high carbonation.
O: One of those beers made for the Bud Light crowd. Too bad, since I was hoping it was going to be a hoppier lager.
