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.
