The mouthfeel is the best part about this beer - because when it's cold, you can practically drink it without noticing...

Problem is, it is watery, and swill-y, and has a metallic taste to it. Also some dirty corn/ grain flavors.

Way to carbonated. No real taste. Mostly feels like water. Would not drink again.

Note: review #900

Consumed 1/20/15

A: Pours absolutely crystal clear, as any self-respecting American adjunct lager should be - pale gold - moderate, but not high carbonation yields a big, fizzy, white head, fades to a nearly solid cap, and actually leaves lacing

S: Cooked grains, cereal, hints of corn, and some sweetness - not much to report here, not surprisingly, basically smells like lightly sweet water with a touch of corn - not exactly the highlight of this beer

T: Mild, with minimal flavor, but what's here is not bad - lightly grainy, with some cereal, some faint hints of white bread - vegetal, sweet corn, and some light sweetness - almost could pass for a light lager, almost could pass for sweetened water - appropriate for the style, and actually less offensive than many others

M: Light body, with some prickly, crisp carbonation - perhaps one of the most memorable things about this beer, the odd dry/bubbly mouthfeel that makes you need, not want, to drink multiple in one sitting

O: Champagne for the classiest of gatherings

I drank a lot of this back in 2007. Because I just turned 21. And college. And it cost about five cents for a 30-rack. It's not my favorite dirt-cheap lager any more, but it still holds a place in my heart. It tastes like sweet corn and nostalgia.

I love this beer. I'll never understand the negative stigma this beer gets or how Miller Lite (which is LESS of a beer) COSTS MORE?!

The carbonation is the real gimmick of this beer, which just makes it extra easy to chug. When this beer is ice cold there are few better. Very pleasing to the palette, but its GOTTA BE BOTTLED! When you have it canned, you miss a little of the effervescence. This is right up there with Grain Belt Nordeast as the best AAL. Nothing that will blow you away but you could have 20 of these at a cookout and not feel full. I'm craving one right now.

Look is typical of American adjacent lagers. Smell is if metallic copper and iron with hits of stale grain. Taste is even worse at first you get dank grains then taken by overpowered metallic funk. This stuff tastes like a result of a bar fight, just metallic blood and left over beer. Feel is very much like champagne like the name suggests. Overall is terrible. I would have to be very sloshed to drink this and not want to punch a stranger from the funky twang it leaves in your mouth.

Of course this doesn't stand with expensive craft beers. It's a mass-produced American beer. But it is not offensive, and it goes down easy, and it tastes like being young.

Obviously you don't want to buy this if your looking for a beer drinking experience, but for an inexpensive brew that is a known quantity, you can do worse.
