Served from a 24 ounce tallboy into a shaker pint. A semi-aggressive pour produces about one inch of frothy head which actually proves quite sticky. The beer is a pale straw color with moderately high carbonation. It looks like beer.

Lots of fruity alcoholic, corn mash and cooked veggy aromas and flavors, along with maybe just a tinge of metal. A general corny sweetness becomes more apparent as it warms. In general, the alcohol content is well-masked, though a definite bite can be detected in the aftertaste. There may be some light floral hops at work here, as well.

I've been drinking this beer on rare occasions for many years. The old buzz bomb forties aren't available in my area anymore, but I wish they were. It is what it is and it ain't half bad. This is my go to beer for tomato juice beer cocktails.
