2.83/5 rDev +26.9%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4
Appearance: The beer pours with a good thumb of head that retained and laced somewhat, which is nice for a buck a beer. Decent carbonation and has a clear straw color. Distinctly average.
Smell: The smell of this beer is decently strong, but I wouldn't call it pleasant. It has a straw and grain scent with a mix of skunk and metal to it.
Taste: Nothing overly great here, but it's not offensive. Pretty much your standard adjunct lager. Starts with a hay like taste that turns to a more corn and grain mix and ends with the barest touch of hops. However there is a definitive plastic and metal taste to the whole beer.
Mouthfeel: Well, the beer transitions well enough and the carbonation is decent but it leaves a plastic aftertaste that while not strong, does linger.
Drinkability: Well the beer does go down smoothly and doesn't cause bloating or gas issues. It's fairly refreshing and the low price gives it something of a free pass. Certainly the most redeeming part of this beer.
Final Thoughts: Pretty much your standard buck a beer fare. It's not really meant to knock your socks off, it's meant to be guzzled down and get you drunk. As far as buck a beers go, this one is pretty average. If you are on a budget, you could certainly do worse, but there isn't anything special about this beer.

473 ml can served cold into a pint glass.
Appearance - Clear, pale golden yellow color. 2 fingers of white head with some retention. Sparse lacing. Lots of bubbles rise to the top of the beer. Looks decent.
Smell - Some adjuncts and light grassy and grainy aromas. Nothing offp putting and nothing powerful here either.
Taste - Fairly bland with some corn which makes the beer a bit on the sugary sweet side. Retains a clean and refreshing taste too.
Mouthfeel - Clean crisp and refreshing. Medium- high carbonation.
Overall . Not a lot to say other than a better than expect AAL and definitely preferred to many of them.

2.17/5 rDev -2.7%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2
Appearance – Clear light yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is a below average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fairly good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.
Smell - Grains, bread, corn, malts
Taste & Mouth - The beer has a high amount of carbonation. I can taste bread mixed with malts, and lots of corn. There really isn't a whole lot of tasting going on.. it drinks like a light beer. It ends with a corn syrup sweet aftertaste.
Overall – Figured I'd give this one a shot based on the 'Bros' review.. but it's really nothing special. Its very light tasting and has a lot of adjunct qualities. I guess it would work well for a camping/lawn mower beer.
