Some friends left this in my fridge. Really. But I'm too damn cheap to throw it away. So, after pouring, I'd wished I'd left it in the can. Its shockingly clear, but has marvelous carbonation, and a quick, clean head. The aroma is somewhat corn-like and canny(?).

The taste is much to write about. Its got a very simple profile, like straining beer over the tongue. There are lots of subtle off flavors, but nothing too offensive. What is surprising is how quickly the beer makes my feel bloated, gassy. Possibly due to the speed with which I drank it.

Pours a macro yellow with a white head, nothing much to offer but a 5.9 abv. Nothing I would write home about. But nothing that is totally objectionable. It is cheap,and available everywhere. I would drink this beer on a hot summer day when I am short on cash.

Terrible. Burnt corn taste mixed with rubbing alcohol. Absolutely awful. I'd drink any 40 of malt liquor before I touch this again. Sometimes, I wonder why I try these low-end beers. Every once in awhile you find a diamond in the rough, but this is just rough, period.
