Used to have a few here or there as a kid when it was on special for $1... this beer usually meant the night was not gonna go to well for my stomach. Kicked it old school at a beer pong tournament and this was the beer of choice (not mine, someone elses)...

Bright golden yellow in color, almost artificial looking hues. Huge plume of frothy head, leaves quickly with no trace. Smell is of light grass, stale water and bland corn. Taste is a relatively ineffensive light grass and corn flavor with just a hint of the before mentioned stale water. Somewhat bitter bite at the end. The body is light, ampley carbonated and very dry finnish. Drinkability is low because it always seems to do something to my stomach that i wont review here.

When I open this beer, it just smells like a wet dog. Every one I had smelled the same. And while I know it's probably just from adjuncts or grain, that's what I'm getting.

Taste....mostly of corn in the body. You don't expect much flavor out of this beer and you won't get it, but the predominant flavor seems to be corn. There's a small hop bite at the finish with at least gives it a bit of crispness. Some cracker is also perceptible.

It's a cheap beer, so you can't expect a lot. It's probably better than other macros, but not by too far. Honestly, I'd hoped for more.

12oz can into Olde Hickory pint glass, BB May 28th.

Vigorous pour gives a nice frothy white head. Beer is crystal clear and a light golden yellow. Surprisingly it keeps a small head/big skim for most of the drink. Smell is light, sweet, and bitter; reminiscent of a light beer actually ad most boring. Taste is fairly sweet and light, not much body to it at all. I assume the light sweetness is the corn coming through. Hops are very light giving just a touch of bitterness. Body is very light and well carbed.

A boring beer with just enough taste to make it palatable, somewhere between a light and adjunct lager in taste and body. While not a beer I would refuse if offered, this is also not something I would imbibe of my own volition. Quite simply there are better beers in the same price range or cheaper.
