A: Pours a clear medium golden yellow in color with moderate to significant amounts of active visible carbonation rising quickly from the bottom of the glass and some faint medium yellow highlights. The beer has a two finger tall sudsy fizzy foamy off-white head that reduces to a medium sized patch of thick film surrounded by a very thin film covering the majority of the remainder of the surface of the beer and a medium thick ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of slightly sweet grainy malts and corn adjuncts with a light aroma of herbal hops. Hints of something slightly metallic, alcohol, and light fruit (red delicious apple).

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of slightly sweet grainy and corn adjunct malts with some lighter flavors of cereal grains. There is a very light amount of light fruit (red delicious + granny smith apple) and it is slightly metallic (maybe coppery like blood). There is a light amount of herbal hops which contribute a light to moderate amount of bitterness which fades quickly. Hints of alcohol towards the finish.

M: Medium bodied with heavy amounts of carbonation. Crisp and smooth.

O: There is a harshness to the alcohol of this beer which is surprising since it clocks in at only 5.5% but I guess I cannot be too surprised considering the price ($.67 for a single can). Not offensive but not a beer that I would seek out again. I could see serving this at a tailgate where the majority of folks were not into craft beers as something different but still enjoyable (maybe a slight gateway beer to trying something different).

Better than PBR for the value; quite impressed for the price. Quite a basic pilsner taste, but there is a definite pilsner-like taste there, more so than say PBR. Typical grassy, light taste, yet pretty drinkable.

Overall: There is taste there, doesn't feel watered down, and is of extremely good value. Great budget buy.
