3.58/5  rDev +5%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

I've been drinking this beer for 20 years and it was pretty much all we drank in college, and I can't believe I've never reviewed it. But hey, I'll take the opportunity now. Review is from notes taken on 5/22/2013 and poured from can to a pint glass.

Appearance: Fairly dark coppery color as expected, near perfect clarity, moderately strong carbonation bubbling up to a thin wispy and incomplete skim of a head. Head died down really quickly and leaves now trace of lacing, and I know my glass is clean, so that's one of the only faults I can find with the appearance. Solid and looks like it should.

Smell: Grainy and a little toasty, slightly sweet corn. I mean, there's not a lot going on here, but it's clean and simple, and there's nothing wrong with that.

Taste: See smell. Pretty much matches it to a T. It's nothing that's ever going to blow anyone's mind, and it's probably best enjoyed while riding around on a lawn mower, but when the 12 pack is less than 10 bucks, you can't go wrong.

Mouthfeel: Pretty good, really. Body is light (compared to most beers I drink) and it's crisp and refreshing. Doesn't linger, doesn't coat, doesn't leave any nasty aftertastes.

Overall: Like mentioned earlier, it's never going to rock anyone's world or make any top beer lists, but sometimes simple and cheap is all that's necessary for a night of enjoyment. Take something for what it is and be realistic, and you too can enjoy the simple things in life.
