I'm not a beer expert, but this beer is very nice for the price. It's much, much better than any other beer I've tasted that's under $1 a can.
The appearance and smell are just average (not like the cheap pee smell some sub $1 beers have). The taste is great. Not bitter. A touch of sweetness and very smooth.

Pours a brilliant golden with a quarter inch white had that slowly dissipates.

Grain, corn, and acetaldehyde form the aroma, with light floral hops at the finish. Smells kinda boozy and estery.

Flavor is unexpectedly sweet. Tastes more like a malt liquor. Grain, corn adjunct, and fruity, apple esters are present throughout, with the finish being lightly bready and a touch bitter.

Body is on the light side, with moderate carbonation and a bit of astringency.

Pretty sweet and estery for a lager. Just too sweet.

Small white head quickly falls into a very thin lacing above a clear straw golden colored beer.

Sour grain malt aroma with some sour fruit (lemonish) style hops coming through.

Sour grains and light sour hops dryish taste.

A dryish aftertaste with a very slight leftover sour lemon taste hanging around on this light bodied decently carbonated lager.

This beer seems like a lemony Bud Light, I'll have to pass on drinking any more of these but I think those Bud Light Lime drinkers might like it.

12 fl oz aluminum can served into a Uinta pilsner glass in me gaff in low altitude Los Feliz, California. Acquired at Trader Joe's in Culver City nary but more than a few hours ago. Expectations are very low. It looks like and seems like shite. A full sixer ran me $3.49 - just over one cent per beer more than the best deal on Budweiser at Wal Mart. That makes this pretty damn cheap for the L.A. area.

Served straight from the refrigerator. Not paired with food.

A: Pours a ~4 four finger of beige colour, poor thickness, little cream (if any), and average retention. Lacing is awful. Colour is a clear yellow with little vibrance. No yeast particles are visible. No bubble show. Far from an appealing appearance.

Sm: Straw, barley, and clean malts. A bit of an apple juice character. Not at all appealing. It really turns me away. That said, it could be worse. Mild in strength.

T: Stale malts, clean barley, a bit of straw, and a little cream. Bland, boring, simple, lacking subtlety, and dull. Why brew this? Swill.

Mf: Clean, smooth, wet, and thin. Suits the flavour only in the most general of ways.

Dr: A clean simple uninspired brew. Would suit beer pong on a good day. It's better than American macrobrew shite like Budweiser, but that's probably the best thing I can say about it. It'd be suitable for cooking. This brewery's simple times pilsner can be had at the same low price and is a better beer methinks. There's no reason to get this again. Avoid.

Can from Trader Joe's poured into a weizen glass

A: Impressive at first. Darker amber than typical of the style. A nice one-finger head, that becomes a half-finger head, then ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Fizzy.

S: Like a nasty barn

T: Apple juice. Seriously. Seriously.

M: Watery apple juice.

O: Want apple juice that says it's beer? This is for you!

2.8/5  rDev +11.1%

Pours a deep golden color with great clarity and a lasting white head. Leaves plenty of lacing on the glass.

The aroma of corn, barley and light hops is parallel in the flavor profile, which is not bod but has too much corn. It does leave a decent bready finish.

M: medium+ carbonation; medium-light body.

O: With appropriately low expectations, you'll probably agree that this hits its target: a cheap but drinkable lager.

2.53/5  rDev +0.4%

Look is a pale yellow-orange with a 3-finger bone white head. Smell is skunky corn and grain. Taste is crisp and clean like water up front, but finishes sweet, syrupy, and cloying - like sweetened corn water.

Not especially bad, but not very enjoyable
