Pale yellow appearance with a large amount of head. Grainy, corn smell with a hint of sweetness.
Adjunct taste with lots of sweetness. Has a boozy taste to it as well with a hint of corn and metal. Surprisingly light bodied with poor carbonation. Aftertaste is metallic and has a lingering sweetness.
Felt greasy buying this, but overall it's pretty light for borderline malt liquor. It's good for getting drunk for cheap, but it's a little more tolerable then other beers in its class.

355ml can. Sometimes a guy just wants an old-school backyard pisser kind of beer, and that time must be now.
This beer pours a clear, bright pale golden yellow colour, with three fingers of puffy, thinly foamy, and yes, sudsy bone white head, which leaves some random splotchy lace around the glass as it quickly blows off.
It smells of sweet creamed corn and rice, um 'malt', natch, an acrid paint thinner alcohol edge, wet metal, and that whole cooked veggies masquerading as hops thing. The taste is pretty sweet, some real barley malt poking its nose in, and seeing all the adjunct bros running this party, promptly hailing a cab home. The unpleasant industrial solvent essence from the nose seems to have thankfully abated, leaving a simpler gas station fume character amongst those hardy over-cooked, skanky vegetables.
The carbonation is quite low, as to be almost absent, the body light in weight, yet averagely dense and cloying in its sugary bearing for such a lager, so 'smooth', I guess, for what it's worth. It finishes sweet, sweet, sweet, and softly boozy, those baddies I've been ragging on having the good sense to keep out of sight for at least a little while.
I can totally see the general, base appeal of this sucker - the first gulp or two are pretty harsh, sure, but then the 'flavour' somehow mellows into the background, especially if you don't think too hard about it. Unfortunately, this here is a thinkin' man's beer site, and neither the affordability nor the palate-numbing flavour of this offering can dull me enough to recommend this as anything other than a leftover from the woe-begotten ice beer trend of the 1990s.
