Served in a pint glass, poured from a 12 oz. bottle with a little picture puzzle on the cap.
A - clear orange with no head. That's about it.
S - Not much at all smell-wise. Very faint malt and hops, but mostly an overlying cereal grain smell.
T - I went into it not expecting much, and got a decent beer out of it. Adjunct grain is definitely present, but there is enough malty and just a little bit of hoppy flavor to make it serviceable.
M - watery and fizzy. Are you expecting anything else?
D - I wouldn't feel bad at all about knocking back more than a few of these. I mean, there's little substance to it, but it's certainly far more palatable than BMC adjunct junk. Clean taste and clean finish makes it a great party brew.
Overall - I bought it for my cousin because he remembers it fondly as a cheap, decent-tasting beer to enjoy with friends, and I'm inclined to agree with his reasoning. It's by no means an artisan brew, but it's not made to be that. It's a social, party beer. If I were holding a party, I'd definitely stock up on this instead of BMC standard.

I went looking for some cheap beer because money is tight this weekend. I found this, 12.99 for a case of loose cans. At first I thought it was a typo, but it was right. It came out to 13.90 with tax. I saw this beer on an episode of "The Office", so I assumed it wasn't god-awful. and it isn't. It is close, though.
Appearance, I poured some in a glass, just to see for the review. Very light.
Smell- almost non-existent. All I smell is aluminum from the can and a faint Budweiser smell.
taste- Again, almost non-existent. Not bad, not good. Reminiscent of Bud Light or Coors Light, and this isn't a Light Beer. I can't imagine how watery the Light version is.
Mouthfeel- Flat and dull. Swallow fast and keep it cold. Definitely could use more carbonation.
Overall-You get what you pay for. 14 bucks a case, I was expecting worse. If you're in a pinch this is a lot better than Natural Ice, Old Milwaukee, or any of the other cheap and awful beers. If you can afford better, though, then get better.

Just the opposite of most people on this one. Tried it out of a bottle on several occasions, and every time tasted very flat. Bought a 6 Pack of cans for $3.99, and well I think it actually tasted a lot better. For the record: I DO NOT LIKE DRINKING BEER OUT OF A CAN! But this one on the other hand, wasn't too damn bad. The ultimate local budget beer in the PA, DE, NJ area, you really can't go wrong on this one.
