This beer surprised me! Had it at a party at work--bottle on ice, poured into a plastic cup. Yeah, I know.
Golden colored--slightly darker than most similar mass-produced lagers. No head to speak of. Meh.
Smelled just a hint of skunk, not much else.
Tasted better than I'd imagined. It wasn't skunky at all (which is what I expected). It wasn't great, but hey, who's counting? (Oh, we are. Oh well.)
Mouthfeel was a step above water, and not a big one. It was a little too carbonated too.
Drinkability? I'd have it again, but I'd never buy it. Don't think it would pair well with anything...

330 ml can served cold into a glass.
Appearance- fairly rich golden color, with a nice helping of two and a half fingers of head. This dissipates quickly however. Significant amount of bubbles in the see through beer.
Smell - slightly metallic, and other than that some mild adjunct aromas especially corn and nothing else to speak of. Fortunately nothing off putting either.
Taste- very bland, reminiscent of tonic water with a few adjuncts in there. Bland even by light beer standards. However nothing weird tasting that would give this an even lower score.
Mouthfeel - moderately high carbonation, dry finish in the mouth. Works well with the fizzy water flavor.
Overall - a little more flavor and this could be considered a pretty decent light beer, unfortunately this is extremely bland and water will quench the thirst better. Fortunately enough, there's nothing awful about it either meaning, it serves it's purpose well enough.
