I have one of these left sitting lonely at the back of the fridge. Thought I'd take time to give it a fair shot.
Appearance (1) - poured into a glass. nothing. No lace, no head.
Smell (1.5) - Smell is faint but includes whiifs of stale cornbread, malts, mildewy grain. Some corn husks. The core of which is wrapped up in an artificial adjunct dextrin smell.
Taste (2) - a cornbread seltzer that quickly evaporates into plain water and then, mysteriously...vanishes. If you drink beers fast, it goes down smooth. I like the fizz, its exciting like pop rocks. But for character and taste, this beer has nothing. Slight malt and slight husk. A mildly artificial sweet adjuncty finish.
Mouthfeel (2) - Fizz. Aaaaand More fizz. Water. Easy drinking and refreshing so it gets 2 points. Mixes great with tomato juice.
Overall (1.62) - a true light beer cut in half. 2.4% ABV, 55 calories. So a 1/4 of a real beer. Naturally a terrible beer OR a refreshing mildly alcoholic seltzer, depending on how you look at it. Good for those who dont like the taste of beer or extremely hot days when you want to pound two or three in five minutes without consequence (enjoyment?) of taste. Again, easy drinking, Ill give it that.
