2.73/5  rDev +1.9%
look: 2 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A-Pours a very clear straw color with a sad one finger head that dissipates very quickly.

S-Reminds me of a Munich Helles with a light sweet malt note and a hint of herbal hops.

T-Metallic twang with a slightly tannic grain note and some herbal hops on the finish.

M-Very light bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation, with a crisp, clean finish.

D-Not as terrible as I imagined, but nothing mind-blowing either. One plus is that the alcohol is not noticeable at all for 7%, which I thought would be very present in a beer this light bodied/colored/flavored.

3.08/5  rDev +14.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

24oz can purchased at Binny's for $1.79. Served in a Glunz taster glass.

A - Quick-dissolving white foam settles to a thick collar, and some wisps, as well as a bit of spotty lace. Transparent golden color.

S - Corn, yeasty bread, biscuits, and perhaps a vague hint of herbs and rotting garbage when it warms up. Still, much better than many adjunct lagers I've had in the past.

T - Taste is actually a bit better, as it's largely devoid of off-flavors. Generic adjunct character, with corn, buttery bread, sugar, ad honey. Manages to avoid being cloying, which is a pleasant surprise.

M - Smooth texture, medium-bodied, with pleasant, albeit gritty, carbonation. Surprisingly solid for a beer of this style. No obvious alcohol, although I didn't expect any at 7%.

D - One of the better tasting malt liquors I've had, although I suspect the lower ABV is a huge advantage. If this was 12% and tasted the same it'd be seriously impressive; as is, it's merely an above average higher-ABV adjunct lager. Would consider purchasing this at a ballgame over many of the other horrendous options (although US Cellular actually offers some good beers).

Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

I'm a ChiSox fan and quite the ticker. This is not a necessarily good combination when random, new, Sox-themed beers come about. This one arrived in my area a couple days ago. $1.79 for a 24oz can. Based on experience, this is not a good start. It pours a clear pale-ish golden straw topped by a finger of white, craggy foam. The nose comprises corn, flour, corn syrup, light biscuit, semi-sweet flowers, and grass. It's not too bad, so far. The taste, though, finally brings the quasi-expected storm: notes of corn syrup, sweetgrass, flowers, rice cake, honey, hard water, and fresh-from-the-cob corn. Wow, this stuff is somehow both sickly sweet and mineral-laden-ly vegetative. The body is a stolid medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a somewhat syrupy feel. Just like the taste, the feel is kinda oxymoronic, feeling both smoothly flowing and thickly stiff. I'm definitely not smiling with this stuff on my tongue. Overall, Big Frank said he wouldn't put his name on a bad beer. Looks like he was right: This is a downright crappy beer. Of course, with that ABV and the other options around, I'd probably still drink this at The Cell if the Sox don't start improving soon: Something's gotta take my mind off of the sadness on the field. Definitely sadness here in this can...
