BBD: 11/6/2017

2015 BJCP Category: 1A American Light Lager

AROMA: Lightly sweet corn cereal character (though far from cloying). General base malt. Aroma is fairly mild overall, but clean fermentation. 10/12

APPEARANCE: Pale straw hue; very clear and effervescent. Moderate white foam quickly dissipates. 3/3

FLAVOR: Light corn cereal taste and light base malt presence. Fairly sweet, but certainly not cloying. No hop flavor; no discernible bitterness. Slight corn syrup flavor on the finish (possibly DMS). 15/20

MOUTHFEEL: Light body; high carbonation. Slightly refreshing, clean aftertaste. Highly quaffable. Sessionable at 4.2% ABV. 5/5

OVERALL IMPRESSION: Though not what I prefer to drink, this is certainly a classic example of the style. 9/10

TOTAL SCORE: 42/50
