1.7/5 rDev -25.4%
Thanks to swalden28 for sharing this can.
The beer pours a clear yellow color with a white head. The aroma is awful. I get some grain, grassy hops, corn and a very off flavor that I can't identify. The flavor is not any better and may actually be worse. I get some corn and something that resembles skunk urine. Not sure how a canned beer was skunked, but I am also not sure how this beer made it to market. I guess there have to be some mysteries out there. Watery with medium carbonation.

This beer is a drain-pour. Its only use is in ice-fishing houses where one's tastebuds are numb.
The appearance is similar to any yellowish-fizzy beer in a can. Small head, no lacing.
Taste- some bready grain perhaps- surprisingly there was a minute hint of hop abstract noted.
Mouthfeel- Thin, highly carbonated.
Drinkability- High when taken through a funnel or when a hole is poked in the bottom and the top is popped- otherwise the taste gets in the way of consuming several of these.

had a beer tasting at a friend's house on 3.28.09 - had this beer more as a joke.
it actually looked pretty decent. nice creamy head - nice crisp clean yellow color. lots of tiny bubbles coming up from the bottom and nice lacing to boot. not much to smell - some minor malt and very light hops.
the taste was very macro lager-ish. not much in the flavor department. very bland and very basic. the mouthfeel (outside the bland taste) wasn't half bad - a bit soft and creamy with a little edge at the end.

a: pours a light golden color that is typical of the macro lager catagory with an eigth inch of head that dissapears fast leaving no lacing
s: corn adjunct malts no hop presence
t: corn malts at first, the hop bitterness that follows is very light and barely detectable
m: light to medium bodied with a little more than average amount of carbonation
overall, this is a cheap macro lager, $4 for a 6 pack, something that I will probably never buy again
