i Bought it walmart in a 12 pack, was wanting something i hadnt had before. first i have to admit i am a fan of IPA and strong flavors. This does not have a strong flavor. it had good carbonation and mouthfeel, almost like a sprite. the flavor wasnt there, none, zilch. if someone gave it to me i would drink it but i wont buy it again. plain old budweiser or Miller has beer taste than this. I expected more from a German beer and now i feel betrayed , let down and disappointed.

Time for another lager. I am going to try to lose weight by drinking more beer and eating less. Is that plausible? I dunno. It sounds fun though!

Appearance (3.25) : Foamy white, almost artificial looking (like school glue or marshmallow creme) head. It's sitting at about 2 fingers. Body is a transparent pale straw color with lots of clarity.

Aroma (2) : I can smell it from here, the vegetal smells and rotten garbage corn. BUT, let's see what it's like up close...

Musty corn, maybe some distant barley. But mostly just musty corn.

Taste (2.75) : Marginally better than the aroma, but the first word that comes to mind is "funky". First taste is washed out corn, then some musty barley notes, and finally it ends with a semi-dry corn/faint hop taste. I really don't have much more to say.

Mouthfeel (2.75) : Stabbing carbonation with a very light creamy underbelly. Light bodied as to be expected. Ends semi-dry.

Overall (2.58) : It's not a bad beer, and it's not something I'd avoid like the plague. I just would probably never drink it again unless it was offered to me for free. It's just got this linear cornfest thing going on, with diaper and musty barley. Can't shake it.
