I have to agree with many of the reviews here, for a bottom of the barrel, bargain basement brew it's not half bad.

It looks like apple juice. There's odd golden brown color to it with excellent clarity and vibrant carbonation bubbles. No head whatsoever. Faint cereal grain lager yeast aroma. The taste is a mix of cereal grains. Like a sweeter version of honey nut Cheerios. The mouth is moderately carbonated and yet designed to be quite smooth.

Poured from 25oz can into a pint glass. This is billed as "Category 5" -- yet somehow I don't expect to be blown away.

Appearance: light gold hue with no haze and light effervescence. The fizzy white head dissipated almost immediately.

Smell: light and sweet with just a little plastic. Mostly inoffensive.

Taste: sweet and plasticy with just a general off-flavor. Ugh, I'm really not fond of this. It's also sour -- and not in a good way.

Mouthfeel: very light body with a moderate effervescence. Not interesting.

Overall: this is just an unfortunate beer. Its flavor is bad *for the style*, which is really saying something.

Better than expected, smooth flavor, amber color. This is meant to do one thing and it does it well. Drink one of these and you will feel it. Weak aroma but that isn't unusual for malt liquors.
