2.68/5 rDev +5.9%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance- Pours a golden-straw color with a one finger fizzy head. The head of the brew fades quite quickly to leave only minimal lacing.
Smell – The aroma is sweet of corn and has a decent bready smell. Mixed with these aromas is a light caramel as well.
Taste – The taste is quite sweet up front and remains so throughout the taste. It begins with a light bready taste mixed with a strong sweet corn taste. As the taste advances the bready fades with the sweet getting stronger. As the taste sweetened with flavors of caramel and more corn, it became a little cloying. The flavors were never really off, just a little too sweet. In the end a light metallic taste joins the sweetness leaving a sweet and light metal flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer was on the average side in terms of creaminess and carbonation. Both were good for the style and made for a rather easy drinking brew.
Overall- Well nothing really all that fantastic and definitely nothing to go out of your way for. For 50 cents a bottle thought, you can’t expect too much, and it could be good for a party style brew I suppose.

12 oz. bottle poured into a pilsner glass.
I don't understand the "poor" rating this beer has.
This beer pours like a lager should. Nice head, clear and yellow. What are lagers supposed to look like again? Last time I checked, this!
Smells of corn and barley. Smells like Mickey's. If that's a bad thing, I don't know beer. Smells like it's going to be easy drinking yet give you a generous amount of alcohol.
Taste: oh my. Think of malt liquor, without the cloying sweetness. Or off putting aftertastes for you purists. This tastes great! Little hit of alcohol, but the watery mouthfeel washes it away nicely. Malty. Spiffy! Clean water, light hop bitterness (it IS there), picking up hardly any corn taste, just a nice mild beer flavor. Very good ice brewed beer.
Overall I'd say go and try this if you're tired of drinking bitter pinetree-esque brew for a quick buzz. Not too shabby on price, and it's easy drinking. Definitely not deserving of it's "poor" rating. That's reserved for Big Flats or Beer 30 for crying out loud. GET SOME.

2.7/5 rDev +6.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2.75
Poured from 12oz brown bottle into a pint glass.
Appearance: medium golden hue with a light effervescence and a thin layer of creamy white foam. Not too bad for the style.
Smell: a little bit of sweetness and a little malt character. Not many obvious flaws, but essentially no useful aroma at all.
Taste: sweet malt with a little bit of adjunct off-flavor. Hops are nonexistent and bitterness is almost unnoticeable. Not great, and not a lot of character, but otherwise not gross or anything.
Mouthfeel: light body with a big carbonation and, while not creamy, it's interesting enough.
Overall: this beer is not horrible. It doesn't have a lot of flavor, but that means it's not disgusting. Just kind of blah.

3.18/5 rDev +25.7%
look: 4.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
Poured into a tall pilsner glass: color is straw, big effervescent bubbles and a big bright white head that lingers pretty well.
Smell is very underdone, some thin malt, adjunct type flavors, corn, off grains.
Taste is pretty good, i prefer molson to many other adjunct lagers, and the ice version is decent, some of the malt flavors are concentrated a bit more than standard adjunct lager: some light malt like flavors but the adjunct flavors take over.
Mouthfeel is a bit less crisp, in a good way, than many other adjunct lagers, the strength probably helps this bit.
Overall, a good adjunct lager with some softer mouthfeel, but still uninspiring flavor profile. Score are based on to style rating.
