Offered one of these in a deeply chilled bottle at a buddy's place after a hot day cutting dead fall on his acerage...what the heck...it was cold and wet.. Looked like weak, chilled urine in color...no odor except a funky corn smell. Highly carbonated, weak little white head. Tasted like a near beer with a bit more body...weak watery tasteless...you COULD down a dozen of these in a sitting and not know you had been drinking beer with the exception of frequent bathroom breaks. About the best part of dowing one of these is the incredible belch you can emit from the ample carbonation....then bite the neck of the bottle off for full effect and in respect of the great "bubba" quaffing tradition. A great drink to take to the tractor pulls or a hog wrastlin match.

Pours a straw gold with brilliant clarity. A soapy white head that fell fast and no real lace just a few spots. Nose is light corn and light grain. Thin and a only a hint of green apple and some corn sweetness. Hops are floral and light and go a bit grassy as the beer warms. Taste is clean and has only a mild hint of green apple, and DMS. NO diacetyl and this finishes with a bit of grass and hop bitter. No real fruitiness and a crisp carbonation. Balance between malt and hops was practically even and only during warming did the hops emerge. There was a touch of light acidity in the finish and this finished mostly dry but with a touch of sugary taste at the very end. Mouthfeel is thin and pleasant and a bit watery.
It's got less of an apple taste than some other beers I have rated but a thinner body overall. The DMS was in acceptable limits and this beer had only a bit of sourness to creep on to the palate as it warmed.
Style notes - the standard lager can have little to no malt aroma, fast fallihg head, light body from the use of adjunct and DMS is allowed in low levels. The dms did creep on to the palate in sufficient amounts to keep from wanting another one of these. BUT the green apple sweetness was less than some other beers like molson canadian an d even heineken so I teetered between 2.75 and 3.0 for a taste rating. I gave it the lower rating because I do nto want another.
