"APR0912" printed on the bottom of the 24 oz. can. $1.49

Poured into a mug. Straw colored urine color, bright clarity, thin flimsy head that fades immediately to nothing. Rapidly rising column of carbonation, yet strangely there's no head at all.

Bland aroma, toasted popcorn kernels, wet grains.

Tastes like wet paper, white bread, a vague inkling of grassy hop bitterness. Ghostly aftertaste of malt, but it's more like stale bread. Clean aftertaste, a little dry, but no alcohol presence. Overall bland but not offensive, thin bodied with a medium carbonation level. Best served super cold in warm weather, then it's drinkable. Not the worst of the worst, to be sure.

KEYSTONE TO DA DOME!

Apparently just opening the can has resurrective properties. Gonna have to try this tomorrow with the inevitable hangover this beer will cause...

Bought this from the Frontier Saloon in Folsom, PA; 24 oz can for $1.50, figured why not? Apparently, according to the can, it was specially designed on the inside, yeah right...

I poured this into a standard pint glass.

Appearance: Poured a clear, piss-colored yellow (this really is the most accurate description of the color). A two finger head that quickly dissipates into soapy suds. Boo

Smell: Smelled of corn and metal. That's it, really. Pretty horrible.

Taste: A bit better than the smell, but not by much. A strong taste of corn, followed by a metallic aftertaste. The alcohol taste is pretty well hidden, though.

Mouthfeel: Watery, but it leaves a sticky kind of residue. Weird, and not in a good way.

Overall: A terrible beer of this style, but if you're looking to get smashed, it's an ok option. I almost poured mine down the drain, but felt the alcohol coming on, and decided to finish it based solely on that.
