Brief initial impressions. Full review to follow.

A: Pours 8 fingers of foam. Beige colour. Good frothiness.

Body colour is a translucent clean transparent yellow. No yeast or hop sediment is visible.

Sm: Pilsner malts, a metallic off-note, clean barley, grains.

T: Clean barley. Syrupy malt extract. Generic grassy hop character. Crystal malts. Meh.

Mf: Smooth, wet, crisp, direly overcarbonated, slightly syrupy, moderately thick.

Overall: This is in the - err - "student" category. A budget brew with one intended effect, it's best avoided by the discerning drinker. Not undrinkable.

Cheap swill. I've had worse, but I've had many better even at the same cheap-as-dirt price point.

In the hierarchy of lowbrow beers, I'll peg it as superior to Jacob Best (the most putrid swill ever brewed), Pabst, Milwaukee's Best, Piel's, Red Dog, and Stoney's, but worse than Busch, Old Milwaukee, Goebel, and Genesee.

Overall it is an average player in the lowest category. Drinkable on a budget, but not enjoyable. I remember it as being pale yellow, fizzy, and bland...of course back when I drank swill like this I wasn't going for taste.

An OK "swill" beer. Nothing remarkable, either good or bad. Certainly better than other stuff that comes out of Milwaukee.

This beer is fine for an all day beer drinking marathon. Nothing special about it, other than the memories you create while drinking it.
