look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3

355 ml can served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - Pale golden straw color. Close to two fingers of foamy white head was poured and had unexpectedly good retention time leaving at least a half finger of head around for a few minutes. A few bubbles rise to the top and the beer is crystal clear.

Smell - Slightly metallic, some cereal grains and general "beer" aroma. Nothing great here, but nothing off putting either.

Taste - Some adjunct sweetness, corn-like. Otherwise not a whole lot else, with a touch of underlying hops finish. Not great overall, but for the style, definitely one of the better ones.

Mouthfeel - That underlying hops finish mentioned in the taste, coalesces into a slightly dry finish. Otherwise body is medium, carbonation is medium-high (despite appearance).

Overall - On it's own, not a great beer, but as for mass produced adjuncts, this one is actually quite enjoyable and would quaff without hesitation if nothing better was offered.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Hint of corn and almost some malt on the slightly sweet, yet subtle nose. The flavor is pretty much the same – slightly sweet hint of malt, maybe a bit of corn and little generic sugary flavor. The carbonation comes to wash away the flavor almost as soon as I can start to taste it. There is a bit of a metallic (not quite hoppy) aftertaste, but it's not harsh.

I think overall this is definitely a serviceable brew for the category. I don't think it's as “clean” (or perhaps 'flavorless') as Bud though, it has more character. The lingering corn and metallic flavor almost simulate real beer flavors, almost.
