look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from can into pint glass

Appearance – Pours a golden color with a big white head. The head fades very fast giving way to almost no lacing.
Smell – Some rather unappealing aromas of cardboard and metal shards mixed with a very light corn aroma.

Taste – A very crisp taste meets the tongue. It is mainly sweeter corn malt in nature but has a slight bready flavor as well. Toward the end there is a light papery taste, but it is very light. Overall I was a bit surprised as it was a crisper and more refreshing taste then the nose let on.

Mouthfeel – It has a lighter body with a slightly above average carbonation level. It is very much what you would expect.

Overall – It really has nothing going for it except its crispness. This would be good for right after a run or hard bike on a hot summer day when you want something without too complex a body and that is very crisp and easy to sit, relax, and cool down with.

look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 1 | overall: 1

Ap: Corn, golden yellow and transparent. Very pale but darker than your average light lager. Displayed little to no head and virtually no lacing.

Ar: Virtually no smell. Mild syrup/candy like odor. Hops? What's that?

Ta: The flavor is akin to malt liquor. Syrupy with corn flavoring and the generic adjunct flavors. Does little to entice additional sips. Very bland and watery.

Mf: The carbonation is visible but once applied to the lips, it disappears. Leaves a rather sugary aftertaste with metallic overtones. It fills the mouth no differently than seltzer water. Bland.

Ov: While it's easy to criticize adjunct lagers, this beer is effective at achieving a moderate buzz thanks to the higher ABV. This will forever be immortalized as long as there are frat parties in existence. It appeals to the younger, inexperienced and to the bargain hunters. You could easily buy a similar beer and not feel a thing. At least with this you are guaranteed some kind of result. While staying at this price point I would rather recommend an Old Milwaukee or PBR if flavor becomes a higher priority.
