AROMA: Light amber malt presence. Faint corn or DMS? Clean fermentation otherwise. 9/12

APPEARANCE: Crystal clear amber. Highly effervescent. Large beige foamy head. Decent retention and lacing. 3/3

FLAVOR: Moderate biscuit/toast notes; general amber malt flavor. Some dry bitterness on second half. Some caramel sweetness as it warms, though flaked maize is noticeable. No abrasive flaws. 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Medium/light body. Crisp. Not refreshing, but smooth and sessionable. 4/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Better than Yuengling, almost as good as Brooklyn Lager. Drinker-friendly (which is why this is also the Simpson’s "Duff Beer" at Universal Studios). 7/10

TOTAL SCORE: 38/50
