I have a hard time with the large number of "1" ratings for this beer. I'm not going to do a A-S-T-M-O type review since this stuff will mostly be drank out of the can anyway.

This is a perfectly acceptable "Ice" style beer. I poured a little in a glass and as expected it was pale yellow with fleeting head. The smell and taste are actually quite neutral. The mouthfeel is pleasant due to a moderate level of carbonation. Even several minutes after finishing a 24 ounce can I still have a pleasant after taste.

There is a multitude of malt beverages that make this stuff look like a world class beer which makes me wonder how anyone can rate it a "1".

This is a drinkable, 5.9 class ice beer. No - it's not world class but it's hardly bottom of the barrel either.
