Another grocery store bargain I couldn't refuse....a whole dollar for 22oz cold beer!

A - Golden yellow and clear with a flimsy white head that's gone in 60 seconds. Tons of tiny bubbles stream up to the top of this headless brew as if making an effort to bring back some semblance of a cap, but it ain't happening. Looks pretty blah.

S - Sweet corn and some Saporro-like ricey aromas. Pretty damn good effort for the style and price. Unlike many macro lagers, I don't really dislike the smell of this one. It's sweeter smelling than most of it's brethren.

T - Well, more of the nose really. Sweet rice-cake blandness at first with some sweet cooked corn at the end. Has a bit of tangy metallic detectable hops on the back end. I'm actually pretty impressed. Goes downhill quickly with warmth, so drink up!

M - Fizzy, light bodied with a syrupy coating sweetness that I don't care for. Finishes clean after a raspy carbonation. Like eating crackers.

D - This is one of the least offensive macro lagers that I've had. It's not really tasty, but it's basically flavorless....so it's hard to like and hard to dislike. Does that make sense? So for those who just want to slake a thirst and get a buzz, this is highly drinkable. But for me, it just doesn't hold my interest. Labatts Blue, PBR, and Stag have much more character.
