look: 1 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1

A - 12 oz can pour out a straw yellow with no head. It is very carbonated.

S - Skunky and of alcohol. Maybe a little corn smell, too.

T - It is very watery. There is a corn taste, as well.

M - It is fairly crisp and sharp on the tongue. It's just sad that mouthfeel is the highest rated element.

D - Drinkable....if you want to get drunk very cheaply. I have had worse.

It pours a truly pale yellow, very uninspiring, and the head sprouts and dies in a flash.

The aroma is very weak, beyond mild, with nothing I could identify besides perhaps cooked grain.

The taste delivers what the smell promises, which simply is not much. There's weak malt that disappears as quickly as you taste it, almost making it unidentifiable. When that goes, there's a trace of hop bitterness making you believe that perhaps it really was beer you just drank.

It is very light bodied, feeling thinner than water, maybe because you expect at least a little more. But you don't get it.

It's almost odorless, which may be a blessing, and terribly bland. There were two cans left in my beer fridge from my parents' last visit, so I figured, what the heck, right? Wrong! The second one went right into the trash. I wouldn't even cook with it. I don't like to trash a beer, because I know someone somewhere likes it, but I just can't help myself here. Yep, it's drinkable, just like water, so next time, failing other options, I'll have the water.
