10 oz. can poured into a beer mug - this doesn't deserve one of my better glasses.
A: Pours a light straw color typical of a macro lager. The head is a two finger white color. I'm actually somewhat impressed that the head hasn't faded away to nothing in record time, but that just means retention is poor, rather than hilariously lousy.
S: Rice-y, grainy, and kind of sweet, though perhaps not quite as nastily so as others in the style. Still nothing you need to make a conscientious effort to smell, though.
T: Again, it's not quite as nastily sweet and corny as others. If anything the rice (instead of corn) makes it less offensive and more flavorless. The lack of flavor means its pretty easy to drink, but then again, like sex in a canoe, and all that jazz.
M: The general feel is almost good, truth be told. Unlike a lot of bad macro lagers (looking at you, Miller Lite), this isn't oppressively carbonated, rather it's just fairly strong. It actually has the same level of carbonation that Parabola does! Goes down like water, then again, it may well be sweetened water.
O: I half expected this to taste like infected monkey anus with a side of pus (in other words, like BL Platinum), but it manages to be merely bad. If it's offered to me freely at a party, without anything else there worthwhile, I'll drink it with zero complaints. Still, it'll never be my cheap beer fix, especially when Yuengling's lager is slightly less expensive - and far superior in quality.
