A -Pale yellow-gold with a decent sized head that exhibits deplorable retention. Doesn't look half bad for a macro ice beer though.
S - Vague corn sweetness on the nose, with a barely-there hint of funky hops.
T - Again, sweet corn on the cob with some funky off-flavors that don't offend as much as annoy. Really, really tastes like corn...maybe even with a hint of diacetyl butter smattered on top.
M - Light bodied, highly carbonated, but not really watery like some other macros.
D - For the price ($5 for a 12 pack at the gas station), this is eminently drinkable for someone on a budget. This straddles the line between over-boozed malt liquor and watery low-abv macro brews.

I bought a 24 pack of this for $13 at the local liquor store just to try it out. I've drank it warm and cold, straight from the can, and from my beer glass.
It's a golden yellow color, similar to what you'd expect from most cheap American macrobreweries. Brief high head that settles down really quickly, leaving just a circle of thin foam around the edge of the glass. Minimal lacing. I wish there would have been more. Smell is similar to most cheap beers, sweetness, corn, and malty wheat, but I thought it was stronger and more defined than I usually expect from cheap beers.
Taste was overwhelmingly metallic(probably because of the can) water, corn, malt, and kinda a weird understaste that reminded me of bubblegum. A sweet short-lasting aftertaste. The mouthfeel was ok. Not too impressive. It was fairly smooth, which I liked.
As far as cheap beers go, this is my favorite. I don't expect much for $.50/can, and this one surpassed my expectations. It's got the strongest most defined flavor IMHO, a higher alcohol content than many of the other cheap beers, so it's great for a party, but also really easy drinking for just a day relaxing.
