From my rating book back in 1984. poured to a golden color, was clear in appearance and did not develop much of a head. Aroma was fruity and somewhat stale. Taste was sweet and on the bland side. Aftertaste was mild. Reminded me of a weaker, lighter version of Genesee Cream Ale.

One and half fingers of head, clear yellow tinged colored body.
Smell of candy corn.
Not too bad of a taste. The mildest bitterness, corn and mild honey.
Smooth texture, low carbonation for the style and light body.
For the style it's not a bad beer. I'd entertain drinking this if I had something productive to do on a summer afternoon. Descent flavor and low ABV.

Its a basic beer, I mean sure, its nothing your going to write home to mama about,...but with these hard economic times, you could collect cans all day, as me and my friends have done...then with the deposit money and the recycling that you have accomplished... you could have a few 24 oz brew-skis at the end of the day Vs having nothing.

Taste: Like rotten corn, drink fast, get it over it over with

Smell: Like corn fields after and heavy hot rain.

Head: Forget it, just drink

Overall this beer is cheep and does the trick if you are out of cash, or have been hunting for change all day in the couch.

Did you find 4 bucks in change? Great! You're going have enough money to get loaded from ( 3 ) 24 oz cans. ;-)

Oh - Get your favorite aspirin or headache medicine ready, The Hangover from this beer is nasty...

$6 for the six pack of stubby bottles.

A light gold colour, 2 finger head of shrinking foam, it leaves some lacing behind.

The smell has a lot of corn in it, some other graininess, a non descript bitterness. It smells average for the style.

It tastes of corn, grain, about even with sweet and bitter..both lightly done. Easy drinking, for sure while it's cold, not so much as it warms up. A decent brew to have on a hot day but so are MANY others and there's the odd one that excels. I like their Cream Ale more.
