Poured with no head.
Taste is a medicine hop flavor. Flat and thick tasting. In the glass, it appears to be nothing more than a glass of colored water. This is either a bad bottle of a fair beer or just an overall bad beer.
Not worth trying again to find out.

Thanks to AndrewNations for bringing this bottle back. Served in a tulip.

Pours a clear golden color with a pretty good white head and some spotty lacing. The nose is dominated by DMS and the accompanying creamed corn character. Not much else. Maybe some grain. The taste is nothing but corn and quite gross. Really just bad. Feel is creamy and full of things reminding me of vegetables. Light with not enough carbonation. Drinks very, very poorly.

Really, really bad beer, evil infact. Really uninteresting stuff, and a bit edgy in its taste which doesn't help the beers cause.

I had high hopes for this one and it fell short. I was hoping it was surprisingly tasty like PBR but it wasn't. It looked like most of these lagers do with a pale gold color and a small, white, fizzy head. No lacing. The smell and taste were mostly corn and unappealing bitterness. An okay mouthfeel, crisp, sharp and very light. This is not worth trying unless you are attempting to sample every beer around.

1.63/5  rDev -41.6%

Appearance: No head at all, looks like a soft drink. Pale yellow colour.

Smell: Only a very faint smell, of hops I think

Taste: Tangy and somewhat unpleasant. Sharpness at the back of the mouth, doesn't really even taste like beer.

Mouthfeel: Flat and insipid

Drinkability: NothIng about this drink would encourage me to have another bottle. I'm not even sure if I want to finish this one.

1.68/5  rDev -39.8%

Sickly pale yellow, very small whitish soapy head, spotty lace. Odd nose, very sweet like honey mixed with corn and cooked veggies... plus it is rather potent (a bad thing). Poor palate; malty but cloyingly sweet, no detectable hops, it gets husky at the end. Smooth, weakly carbonated, light bodied, watery. This is just an awful beer. Avoid it, one of the worst beers I have tried.

Below average lager (?). Not really sure what to make of this one, as I could detect none of the attributes touted on the label. Guess I'll have to try it on its home turf some time to see if it is any better. I'll drink it with some gumbo.

The clear darker straw / light golden hued brew is topped by a meager head. Sweet yellow corn in aroma w/ mild notes of sulfur and cooked veggies. A touch of 6- row huskiness is perceptible towards the end of the aroma. The flavor profile is comprised of borderline cloying corn sweetness since hop bitterness is very subdued. The malt foundation is sorely lacking in this brew, most likely due to the highly fermentable but body lightening effect of ample rice in the grist. There's no hop flavor whatsoever. Dixie finishes sweet, w/ mild grainy notes and lingering unappealing generic American lager DMS. This is quite a dissapointing brew and is certainly no better than macroswill.

This beer pours a clear medium orange/yellow with a slowly dissipating white head. The smell is metallic, sulphurous, and sour. The taste(while trying not to breath in) is sweet and malty with a mild hoppy and metalic finish with a thin mouthfeel. This beer looks bad, smells bad, taste bad, and drinks bad but it could be a Hidden River Pale. I will give it another shot-maybe I got a bad one.

Poured into oversized wine glass (not to sure why though)

Pours clear brownish yellow with a lot of bubbles and no lace. Smell is mostly corn, but very little. Taste is rather blah, a bit of corn and maybe some malt. Mouthfeel is light and sticky. Overall I'd rather not have to many of these, although not sure I'd notice the difference.

12oz bottle, at Pizza Brew in Calgary.

This beer pours a somewhat hazy, medium golden yellow colour, with one finger of weakly foamy, and mostly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves a few specks of islet lace around the glass as it quickly burns off.

It smells of rancid butter, turned corn mush, paint thinner, and little else. The taste is musty corn and rice cakes, diacetyl up the yin yang, stale yeast, a touch of plastic phenols, and a dry, non-hop oriented mustiness.

The bubbles are pretty low-key, barely registering on any level, the body medium-light in weight, and way more pithy than smooth. It finishes semi-sweet, the corniness sort of apologetic, but hardly making up for the lingering musty plastic notes.

Another Minhas contract brew, where they seemingly just rename one (I'm not about to investigate which) of their large stable of skanky adjunct lagers. This time, it appears to be one whose corners are thoroughly and duly ravaged.

Beautiful bottle, nostalgic of New Orleans and the Old South.

No head to speak of; no real smell (or taste)

Absolutely, positively, without a doubt, the worst beer I have ever tasted. Light, like water (or piss). Touch of metal and chemicals. The cypress is long gone due to floods, factory problems, etc.

I was with a friend in New Orleans who just had to try it, despite my warnings, and the bartender described it as a "novelty" because of the bottle and name, and strongly advised him not to try it. Despite our protests, he did, and we all three agreed it is the worst beer you can get. Nice bartender, gave him something else anyways.
