Packaging & Date Stamping: 12 oz. green bottle; Date stamp of "Enjoy by 07-06" (oops!)

Bryan's Notes
The Look:
- one-finger of fluffy white head
- pale golden, very clean looking beer

The Aroma:
- not much noticeable aroma (base malts)

The Taste:
- very clean, crisp taste, but no edges
- slight hint of soft caramel
- easy drinking, mild carbonation
- not much aftertaste

The Verdict: This is just an easy drinking non-offensive session beer. While there's not much memorable about it, I wouldn't refuse it if it was presented to me with no other options.
