Poured from a 12 oz can into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours translucent straw with a fluffy white head. Smells of sweet cereal grain, a tad bit of corn, very sweet. Tastes of cereal grain, but much more flavorful than most adjuncts. Beer is light bodied, easy drinking, good carbonation. Overall, a slightly above average beer.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 3.75

A: very pale, dandelion-gold liquid - crystal clear... fizzy, open foam that settles quickly into a thin cap, then slowly dissipates, breaking up

S: bubblegum, at first - that just about fades away, leaving a sweetish, corn bread aroma

T: initial hit of light-toasted lager malt, corn meal... the bubblegum soon emerges, as a highlight around the edges... low bitterness, more of a presence of light, syrupy sweetness... notable degree of tangerine-like citrus essence in the aftertaste...

M: light-medium-bodied, compact roundness... light, foamy wash... disappears moderately dry... drinks much like an import Helles

O: not bad... the fruity-ish, bubblegum/citrus peel elements could be toned down a touch, but they're not all that off-putting... actually, the level of dryness balances that out nicely... would prefer to have more of a grainy, bready taste here, but this has enough flavor not to be completely insipid

look: 3.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Pours a clear, light golden body with a flush of white foam fed by steady streams of effervescence.

Smell: Conjoined nose of lightly malted barley and ground corn with meager, meager backing of hops.

Taste: Cereal malts, a spoonful of corn, a sip of clean spring water, a faint kiss of hops with little imparted bitterness. Faint hint of sweetness on the otherwise clean, crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Overall: Well, it's chuggable and cheap.
