Not exactly pouring out like Dark Lord, this one is a flimsy water that looks like someone spilled a little bit of a yellow beer into it.

Aroma, lacks in every department, but hey, there's nothing offputting about it, there's just no substance to the aroma. If you cooked canned corn in the can, this is kind of what the aroma leads you to think.

Mild sweetness, no hop taste, not really any bitterness, the massive water addition really smoothes the beer out, but even with that, there is still a weird metallic note to it.
Man back in the day you could score these so cheap, like $29.99 a keg at Discount Liquors in Milwaukee. Mouthfeel is just some sweetness, metallic corn insides. Probably ok for beer pong if you're young and dumb. I've had worse beers, but not too many. This beers main sin is that it lacks any substance. I'd recommend only if you need a palate cleanser. Even on a hot day, there's plenty of flavorful yet light options out there.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

12 ounce can poured into a pilsener. "Best by" date of 09/10-2012.

Appearance: This was a surprise. Poured a pale yellow with about 2 fingers of fizzy white foam that actually rose above the top of the glass however retention time was short. Not crystal but very clear with some carbonation bubbles.

Smell: First thing to my nose was a slight malt aroma. This was soon overcome by a pungent grainy smell.

Taste: Very little.What is there is bland and grainy. No hop bitterness to speak of. No malt.

Mouth Feel: Thin and watery. Very little carbonation bite. Not a dry finish but not sweet either.

Overall: It is a light beer and not one of the better ones out there. The price is good about $7 for a 12 pack so if you want something to quench your thirst with a lititle bit of a beer bite this will do it.
