Pint can. Grainy malt aroma with notes of corn and a little bit of grassy hops. Pours pale golden colored with half a finger of white head that has excellent retention and some lacing. Starts with with grainy malt and corn adjunct flavors. Finishes smooth with smooth with some grassy hop flavors. Nice pilsner but not much going on overall. onceblind (10697) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 13, 2017
Clear light golden with a foamy thin white head. Adjunct filled cornish and lagery cracker nose without much depth. Flavor is bland, crackery, heavily lagered and slightly corny adjunct filled. Making a great replica of shit beer is still shit beer. Super clean, yes, but boring as, and corny. NachlamSie (3581) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 23, 2017
Can as a gift. What a crystal clear beer. The body is near-transparent, very light yellow with a long lasting white head. Carbonation is assertive. The aroma is mild with rice, cereal, a kiss of papery hops, and mineral water. La Cumbre nailed their objective. This is definitely an American adjunct lager and not anything else. It’s super fizzy, malts are grainy with minimal pilsner quality, hops add a nice earthiness and light citrus. No DMS, acetaldehyde, or other undesirables you may find in the macro lagers.

Poured from 16oz can into pilsner glass. Ernest (7861) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 11, 2016
A 1" white head drops quickly with some decent foamy lacing. Color is a hazy straw with moderate streaming carbonation. Aroma of biscuit, grain husks and grassy hops. Light and silky mouthfeel with a dry finish. Flavors of bread crust, biscuit, some lemon and citrus rind hops. Overall a really enjoyable lager.
Can. Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, grain, husks), lightly hoppy (herbs), with light notes of DMS and metal. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, slightly husky, slightly unclean. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. 3fourths (9358) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 7, 2016
Well, I suppose it’s to style in that it smells and tastes fairly unpleasant (although though there *are* decent, drinkable pale lagers out there). This has a touch of hop aroma to help a little bit, but otherwise it doesn’t seem to attempt to actually be enjoyable. Presumably made grudgingly to appease Bud drinkers.
From can it’s clear pale gold with a short white head of little retention. Aroma is lightly malty in the way of saccharine and toasted cereal with apple and pear-like touches that seem ester-derived (not acetaldehyde). It’s minimally hoppy and seems cleanly fermented, the malt lacks depth and the aromatic hops are difficult to distinguish, but you can’t say it doesn’t hit the mark for the style. Clean, lightly sweet, bubbly, and simple. Frank (4240) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 21, 2016
Craft cheap style beer that tastes like real cheap beer! I am too excited about this. It reminds me most of Budweiser with it’s slighly apply note and light texture. I’m into it. This beer is Frank approved. maltman53 (472) - Corrales, New Mexico, USA - JUN 23, 2014
: Pours light straw yellow, with a grainy aroma, and a medium-bodied buttery-biscuity malt middle and finish. Overall, this is the gateway craft-beer drug for Budweiser fans.
