look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25

24 oz. can for $1.09 poured into my coke glass.

A - Straw. Minimal head dissipates quickly. Slight lacing stops after a few drinks.

S - Corn.

T - Corn, grains, and hops. Goes down sweet with a tiny bit of staleness at the end.

M - Medium to light. Properly carbonated.

O - Good session beer. It's a bit like Budweiser, except this tastes like a real beer. This would be a great lawnmower beer if I had lawn.
