Served in a can at This Little Piggy Likes Roastbeef in New York, NY

A: Pours a deep golden yellow in color with moderate amounts of visible carbonation. The beer has about a finger tall fizzy white head that reduces to small patch of very thin film near the center of the beer.

S: The beer has aromas of bready malts with just a hint of corn adjunct along with some light notes of floral and grassy hops.

T: Light to moderate flavors of bready malts with some notes of corn as well. There is a light bitterness which does not linger contributed from the hops and just a touch of citrus rind.

M: Just slightly heavier than light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Super easy to drink and a definite session beer. Refreshing and pairs very well with lots of meaty sandwiches - probably would be great for a cook out.

A friend of mine gave me a 6-pack of this the other day. Poured the final bottle into a pint glass for review. Pours a pale, translucent gold with fine lace on top. No head or lace left behind on the glass. Nose is of cheap grains and freshly-cut honeycrisp apples. The mouth is crisp and thin. Very light, not surprisingly. Very sweet beer. Light apple juice, mild corn, sweet finish. This drinks like flavored water, and it is refreshing. I'll give it that. Decent enough to wash down some wings or something, but nothing I'd stock the fridge with on a regular basis.

My favorite part of this beer was the pictorial riddles under each cap. Nice little touch to an otherwise boring beer.

Can't believe I'm actually pouring this one into a glass...
Pours out golden with a minimal white head that diminishes quickly to a faint layering. Aroma is grainy, light citrus, and creamed corn sweetness. Tastes very mild, grain husk, some light malt in there, surprisingly it doesn't have that nasty corn sweetness that I noticed in the smell...Bit of a citrus twang thrown in also, but very hard to find. Mouthfeel's light and with good carbonation. Overall, it's a damn good light beer.

16oz can into kolsch glass.

Not bad. Nice golden yellow dusk color.

Smells like Beer.

Nice mellow beer flavor. Muted frosted flakes with a faint hint of hop. Alcoholic dollar store apple juice maybe.

Like flat seltzer water. Just a bit of fizz.

Easy to drink and not offensive. Much better than any mass light beer. Cheap too.

The CANQuest (TM) rolls on, thanks to my having gotten the hang of resizing photos for submission. I have a bunch of CANs that I was holding in abeyance until I could get a picture uploaded since they look better unopened, IMHO. This was one of them. CAN you dig it?

The Crack & Glug left me with a finger of bone-white head that was disappearing pretty rapidly as I typed. Color was a medium golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Nose was very corn-adjunct filled, but nothing new or disturbing about it. Mouthfeel was medium with a very mild sweetness on the tongue. It was obvious that it was a diluted version of a standard AmeriCAN Adjunct Lager. The finish had a corn flavor that did not do anything to enamor me to it. I understand that this type of beer appeals to a large segment of the public, but it just left me kind of cold.

Pours very light gold and has a small head that disappears faster than anticipated. The taste is surprisingly refreshing at a price so cheap. The taste is pretty straight forward cereal grains sort of has a zest at the end. Feels good in the mouth and is super easy to drink. Good beer anytime of the year.
