2.38/5 rDev +36.8%
Sampled from 25oz can into pint glass.
Appearance: pours a sudsy white 1" head that falls fairly quick with some lacing left behind. Color is clear pale straw. Plenty of streaming bubbles.
Aroma: mild aroma of corn sweetness, white bread and not much else.
Mouthfeel: light and frothy with an easy dry finish. Quite watery.
Flavor: some light barley notes, plenty of corn sweetness, maybe a bit of husks, with a hint of hops in the end. There is a slight alcohol presence in the finish.
Overall: First time I have ever tried this. I wasn't expecting much, so was surprised that it was not offensive at all. Definitely want to drink this one ice cold.

Natty with flavor? We will see.
A- Straw yellow fluid with massive carbonation that falls into a soapy top. Very small amounts of lacing stick to the glass.
S- Not much there, metallic scents followed by a corn and light malt smell.
T- The taste is ok. Just ok. Reason being the very appearent corn and grains upfront. This is then followed by a ricey flavor and ultra mild hop bitterness with metallic notes.
M-D- Mouthfeel is Naturally smooth and easy to drink. Mild carbonation feel as the alcohol level taints the tongue with little to offend the mouthfeel. Drinkablity is great for an ice beer in the U.S. I could drink this if offered as a party beer.

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.
A: Pale translucent gold with poor head and retention. It does have some lacing however.
S: Adjuncts ( Corn ) and booze.
T: Same as the smell except the corn has a slightly rotten taste. Not good.
M: Very watery but it is crisp and slightly refreshing.
O: Another poor AAL. I really need to stop reviewing this stuff.

This is a beer game beer. It's really watery, and you can slam it down while you're playing beer pong or flip cup. That's the only time this beer is acceptable. All other times you should drink something else. Anything else. It's just so bland. Water tastes better and doesn't give you a hangover.
Anecdotal note. I have a friend who can never make a decision ever. We were throwing a party, and we needed beer. He hands me a ten dollar bill and tells me to get something. I ask him what he wants. He just says, "whatever." So me and another friend go to the liquor store to buy the beers. We bought mostly relatively acceptable macro brews, I want to say probably miller lite. Him, we bought a case of this saying, "This'll teach him." We get back to the appartment and he says, "NATTY ICE IS MY FAVORITE!!!"
I guess the lesson is is that somewhere out there is a guy that this beer is the perfect match for. Watery, and flavorless. That's how he likes his beers.
