Straw gold color with a pale like effervescence. Cap much smaller then what the tap had, of course the tap was overly carbonated creating much more action, which made it look great, but made the rest of it worse. Lacing in small patchy strings.

Aroma fares about the same unfortunately, very subdued, pale, dull corn-like sweetness with a peculiar bread must lightly bringing some rain soaked carpet.

Taste is decent enough with some corn sweetness and plain barley malt breadyness. Mainly sweet, dulled with a smidgeonly small hint to some Pilsner-like hopping adding a whisp of floral detection underneath.

Feel is light/medium bodied with a favorable creamy sweetness. Not a whole lot of adjunct activity here but eludes to it more so in the finish once the light breads and small hops float off. Low and even carbonation with a weaker, paled down version of what Schell's offers in there own lager beer.

Served In: Pint Glass

Is there a grain belt buckle? Pours a clear lemony yellow color with great clarity. Needed help with the pour but still left with a large bubbly head that quickly dissipated to nothing. No retention, no lacing, no carbonation.

The nose is limited but what aromas you could get were off. Noticeable canned corn mixed with butyric/sewer smells. Some lighter bread notes that was boarder line cereal and boarder line grainy. Feint yeast notes as well.

The taste is on par with the nose. Or well below par in this case. A almost sickly sweetness with strong notes of corn and butter. No real malt notes at all. No hop notes either to balance. To me this is more along the lines of a malt liquor than macro lager. Some minor sewage notes in the end but not as bad as the nose indicated.

The body is closer to light than moderate. Next to no carbonation and a offsetting finish leaves a filmy finish. Overall not recommended. Not recommended at all.
