Poured from a bottle into a pint glass. Budget day Thursday beer.

A: Clear golden with a nice, soda head. Good retention for a beer of this style. Lacing too. Impressed so far.

S: When I stick my nose into a beer this cheap, I am looking for anything offensive. I don't find anything here. I get a corny nose, a little crackery malt, honey and light yeast. Almost ALMOST reminds me of a pale wheat ale.

T: Right along with the smell, there is nothing offensive here. Not too sweet, but sweet in the middle. The front is creamy and smooth. Perfect carbonation. Hints of yeast and honey on the finish. Most of all, nothing metallic. How much was this beer again?

D: Almost a 5.

Value: You'll be searching for a long time to find a beer that can beat this one for FOUR BUCKS a six pack. Great choice when you're waitin on pay day.

A quality weekend beer used for general partying or getting a little weird. Its for everyone but definitely worth trying.

Comes in a 30 pack | drinkable | good-looking can | outstanding backyard beer | great paired with Cornhole and grilled salmon | the overall experience is greater than the sum of its constituent parts

First review of a beer! What can I say? I don't know much about reviewing but I know I like this beer. Not very ale like; tastes more like a lager or like a red label with a hint of ale.

Goes down easy now; I used to not like it but its grown on me. Tastes creamy. That's all I got. Good beer.

At one time I loved this beer.
It was super cheap and I thought it had a little more going for it than your
typical American lager.

Well, it is still cheap. 99 cents for a 24 ounce can.
When I drink it now, I sometimes get a metallic taste and some funky off flavors.

Looks pretty good, A little darker than your average beer. Fizzy white head that lasts longer than one might expect.
It has a grainy smell and a beery taste.

It is a working class beer that will go well with some pretzels when watching the game.

Overall, it is an OK beer.
The cheap price offsets the off flavors to a degree.
