There's nothing wrong with this beer, but there's really not much "right" with it either. It can best be described as "aggressively nondescript."

Termed an "American Golden Ale," it definitely describes the appearance: gold, a slight haze, and scant white head. The aroma is comprised of a low corn and grain background with a slight apple ester, and is very restrained/neutral.

The flavor comes across in much the same way -- naked grain, moderate bittering, and a low level of DMS. The dry finish is fine.  

Nothing to write home about here. Clean and forgettable -- like a hotel room in a small conference center.
