12oz can picked up as partof a 30pack at Hannaford's in Derry. Pours a light amber crystal-clear body with a good inch of off-white short-lived head. Aroma is dominated by biscuit and cracker, tinged with some hints of adjunct, hay/cut grass, and a small bit of DMS (cooked corn). Flavor is fairly bready with slight hay-like flavor in the background, and just the slightest hint of cooked corn in the background. Light-bodied with moderate to high effervescent carbonation. Extremely drinkable, even for the style, since it has such a pleasant flavor and a clean finish. Tastes very good, an easy drinker, better than your average American adjunct lager, and probably the best thing going for the price (50 cents/12oz can).

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

The beer is extra gold, literally. It has a nice light copper color to it with slowly rising bubbles. A fizzy white head dissipates quickly to a breath of bubbles. No lacing.

The beer smells slightly metallic with a sweet malt presence and some rich bready grains.

The beer starts off with a touch of the typical metallic adjunct lager notes. The body is composed of toasted grains, sweet malts, and barley. The finish is a touch bitter from the hops that adds balance.

The mouthfeel is light and carbonated.

Overall, this is my #1 camping beer when I go to Colorado. I think it's a great tasting AAL for the price point.

An average macro from start to finish and well deserving of a 3.0 score. Certainly drinkable when watching the game or any other social type function but lacks character.
Medium/light body of a bright golden hue and light carbonation.
Very limited head/lace/ring/&cling.
Slight grain in the nose.
Sweet complete with some evidence of the hops but limited.

Another favorite "cheap" or "lawnmower" beer of mine. Great iced down in the cooler on those hot, hot Summer days. Gotta love the 30 pak for $10 on sale where I live (NJ)
