This is a sleeper . . . really nice on the palate and not too watery for a macro brew. Has some nice mild sweetness to it - low-average carbonation - goes down smooth and easy. Nice session beer and nice to have a 12p on hand at all times. Way better than most macro beers but its not a big flavor or aroma bomb. Better than most in the inexpensive lager cat. Worth the price

Pours a transparent golden color with a small white head that dissipated rather quickly. The aroma is grains, caramel, malts. The taste is very much the same as the aroma. For the style this beer is not bad at all and the drinkability is quite high.

This is the beer to drink if you don’t like the taste of beer. Water with a slight beer taste. Not offensive but you would be better served drinking water.
