Pours a pale golden, crystal clear with a big foamy head. Not bad looking to be honest.

The nose is like a pale lager, crisp and hoppy, with a completely undiscernable malt. Seems almost like corn. Boozey.

First taste is... well now I'm really getting hung up on the corn flavor. Malty sweet with not as much hop character as the smell led me to believe. The ABV is not hidden at all, but doesn't rule the flavor either. I still can't discern much of what the malt is made of.

Lingering pale malt sweetness and a bit of bittering around the edges. Thicker in body and fairly smooth and pretty easy to drink, with a decent alcohol kick, but overall not as bad as I was expecting. For what it's worth, this product does exactly what it is intended to do.

as a person who can drink a fifth of whiskey in a sitting...this beer is a nice light change...and at 8 50 for a 12 pack at cumberlnd farms ...y complain...by no means a bragger but it way better than those that come in a ridiculous 40oz that gets warm half through

2.18/5  rDev -8.8%
look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2

A- Pours pale golden and clear. A foamy white Two finger head sits in top for a bit then leaves a slight cap. A lot of active carbonation rolling to the surface of my brewski. Decent lacing throughout.

S- Typical adjunct lager aroma. That's all I've got to say about that.

T- Same as nose. Sweet malts, bready yeast, minimal hop balance. Overly sweet actually. Not too enjoyable.

M- Light bodied for a brew coming in at 8.1%. Still it's got a fizz like a over carbonated soda.

O- This is the perfect beer to bring to your next beer pong tournament hands down. You get the high alcohol content that is awesome, and absolutely no annoying flavor to contend with. You can get f'd up and not have to break the bank in doing so. So game on man, lets do this! In other words, gross.
