Poured a 500-ml can into a Stella Artois chalice. Chalice rests on a glass Stella Artois coaster.
Appearance - golden straw colour with sudsy lacing up the sides. Moderate carbonation.
Smell - Corn and straw dominate the bouquet here, with some grassy notes thrown in. A great partner for nosing some Scotch - brings back objectivity during an intermission.
Taste - much better from a can than the bottle. More depth to the straw-grassy malt flavours with less overt bitterness than the bottle version. Light waves of a slightly bitter finish continue.
Mouthfeel - peppery up front with smoothing effects along the sides of the mouth just seconds later.
Drinkability - a few cans like this in an evening is never a bad thing, just don't over-do it. The taste and refreshment doesn't go out on this great beer.

appearance is no better than say Budweiser. perhaps even worse.
That aside, this beer smells fantastic, such a surprised. The taste is at first a reflection of the smell then immediately dies down to something far less impressionable. Undoubtedly does that kill a point or so in the taste score. With a beer of this piss yellow hue of course it will be a tad watery. And so the mouthfeel lost a point or so. Overall since this beer has some perks, I say give it three stars. Try it at least once. Its okay.
