3.15/5 rDev +28%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Pours golden yellow (slightly darker than most macros) with a thin white head that soon disappears to a thin patch, then nothing but a thin white ring.
The smell is of typical overprocessed hops and corn-like husk.
The taste is of watered-down slick processed hops, corn-like adjuncts and a slight hint of sweetish malt.
The feel is fairly smooth. A hint of body becomes apparent in the feel. Plenty of watery. A slight oily texture is left.
It's a cheap macro. For three bucks and change for a six-pack and easy accessibility, it could be worse. It's acceptable enough for me to bring to the community pool in the heat of the summer occassionally (where only canned beers are allowed). A cheap "beat the heat" beer, but otherwise forget about it. I found this left over in the fridge from the summer, so decided to review it. Won't be revisiting this again until next summer by the pool. That's about all it's good for.
Scores based solely on being a cheap macro.

Not sure where this can came from, but here it is...
It doesn't look bad. It's nothing spectacular, but the clear and bright dark gold brew holds up a decent layer of foam that manages some spotting.
The smell is clean, but it's got little but corn, something like dry grass, and tangy sweetness.
For a beer with a less than impressive aroma, I'm surprised that there's some substance in the taste. For the style, the roasted malts, grains, husk and mildly soapy flavors are better than most. Add to that the fact that hops can actually be tasted and add a light bitterness that's easily detectable, and you might have the best tasting beer of a crappy genre out there.
Dry and husky on the tongue, it's light in body but nearly medium. It has a bit of graininess to it but nothing too harsh. It's quite crisp and even somewhat smooth.

3.11/5 rDev +26.4%
look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3 | overall: 3
Appearance: pours a 1" fluffy white head which recedes moderately. There is a moderate amount of lacing. Beer is a deep golden color with noticeable streaming carbonation.
Aroma: roasted barley, corn husks, clean water and a bit of hop aroma.
Mouthfeel: light and crisp. This brew goes down easily and finish is quite dry.
Flavor: pleasant taste of toasted bread crust, a bit of buttery toffee, some corn sweetness. There is a mild hop bitterness in the finish and aftertaste.
Serving type: bottle
