Presentation: 12oz brown bottle, twist-off cap, no freshness date.
Appearance: Crystal clear, light gold in colour with very little head -- just a very thin white foam lace.
Smell: Grain, fusel alcohols, light herbal hop aroma.
Taste: A smooth and creamy mouthfeel. Light-bodied. Malt sweetness is dextriny, a touch fruity and estery, but not overly sweet. Beer goes slightly crisp, a bit dry, then breaks into a light limey citrus rind bitterness, with bite and herbal-like qualities. Bitterness rides in on a fizzy carbonation. Fusel alcohols can be detected. Picking up some possible corn and/or rice adjuncts too. Aftertaste is oily, grainy with tannins.
Notes: Ah ... the memories. I remember my step-dad drinking this stuff out of the can back in the late 70's / early 80's. Given this, I can't hate this beer. It's not all that bad, for what it is. But would I keep it in my fridge all of the time? Hell no.
