Appearance - Light gold. Clear and bubbly. Reasonably tall foamy white head. Good retention for style.

Smell - Light. Mainly corn and sugar.

Taste - Vague, artificial-tasting sweetness. A little like sugared corn. And not in a good way. I guess it's not especially off-style, but the flavor is somewhat off-putting.

Mouthfeel - Light and fizzy.

Overall - In a style designed to not offend, this one offends. Corn dominates, dehanced by the trademark Minhas over-sweetness. If you need to drink this for drunkenness attaining purposes, keep it in the can and avoid giving it your attention.

No freshenss dating on the Boxer

A= Pours your typical fizzy yellow with a thin whispy white head on it that falls fast and leaves little lacing.

S= Smells a little sweeter than your typical AAL. Not bad. Not good though. Smells like a little sweeter beer.

T= Tastes like beer. A little sweet again. Somewhat akin to a Grain Belt.

M= Typical of AAL. A high carbonation keeps the tongue happy.

O= When a beer comes in a 36 pack I know I have to buy it. This was one of those. A freaking 36 pack for god's sake. I love it. Super cheap and doesn't taste any different than your typical AAL. If you stumble upon the Boxer pick her up.

This is a cheap 5% Beer. It is nothing to write home about, but it's certainly better than a lot of the other beers in its class. Smell and appearance are nothing. The taste is a bit too sweet for my liking. At about $.40 a can it's worth it, otherwise I would pass.

Since the can says "Imported for..", I'm going to go ahead and put this in the Wisconsin listing for everybody's favorite panderer to the lowest common beer denominator. Commercials for this beer plastered my television a year or so ago, looking all local and shit. Would have fooled me, but...

This beer pours a slightly hazy pale straw colour, with two fingers of unbrowned meringue-like white lace, which leaves some surprising swaths of inkblot lace around the glass as it recedes. It smells metallic, grassy, and faintly grainy. The taste is sweet adjunct grains - more rice than corn, which is weird, given that the place where they make this stuff loves all things corn. Also swimming around in there are some faint citrus esters, mild sour, grassy hops, and soft fusel alcohol. The carbonation is on the low side, the body medium weight, slick, a bit oily, and only a tad cloying. It finishes more or less clean, the malt and hops doing their small part amongst a growing hollow booze edginess.

I'll grant that my initial disposition towards this particular offering was not good. Having actually now consumed it, to use a version of the tired axiom, it's just not as bad as I had assumed. Average at best, to be sure, and too sweet, but nothing overly offensive either.

Appearance: Not bad. Pretty thick and pale (very pale) yellow. Great foam that sticks around a bit.

Smell: Pretty good. Definitely sweet, with very few (but some) hops. Normally I might find something like this gross, but there's something endearing here.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Taste is like sweet corn, actually kind of good. The thick syrupy feel makes this a little less than average.

Drinkability: The sweetness could make this difficult to pound. That said, I actually find this pretty enjoyable.

Overall: I'm rather impressed, as I did not expect much. I would definitely drink this over some alternatives.

It's really cheap. It will get you drunk. Hard for me to drink unless i put lemon or lime juice in it. Slightly better in a glass then the can. My wife had to the finish the case. She can drink anything. This beer proved that lol. This mandatory 250 character response is lame. I was fine at hard to drink!

Poured from 12oz can.

A- Pours a pale golden yellow color. One finger fizzy white head that dies down almost right away. No real lacing on the sides of the glass.

S- Heavy cereal grains in the front. Light green apple aroma in the middle hints from time to time. Sweet malts in the ending make this beer simple and to the point.

T- Sweet cereal grains in the front shows up loud and clear. There is a light sourness in the middle of beer that goes with another blast of sweetness. The ending of this is fried veggies with one last blast of sweetness.

M- Light mouthfeel. Carbonation is fizzy but fits the beer. Sweet malts and veggies left on the palate with a light alcohol in the aftertaste. Crisp and clean tasting. Light alcohol drying on the palate. Flavor is balanced well for the style.

D- This one is easy to put down. A little on the sweet side but it tastes like a Bud with a little extra sweet side to it. ABV is low enough to drink a sixer or more of this no problem. NOt good but not bad...pretty average.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a light golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is of plastics, green apples, some grains. Taste is a typical Minhas flavor profile, green apples, grapes, plastics, not very good. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a bargain at this price, but not very good.

Discount bin novelty buy for cheap. "12 339" code printed on bottom of the can, appears to be a best by date.

Pale gold, bright clarity, thin feeble head.

Smells like sweet apple candy and cooked vegetables, soggy wet grains, corn silage.

Mealy grainy sweet flavor, apples and envelope glue. Wouldn't be surprised if this was brewed with feed grains and table sugar. Flavors of puffed rice cereal and manila folders round things out. Watery and flaccid, unpleasant artificial aftertaste.

Another lowest common denominator piece of crap from Minhas.
If you're on a budget like many, there are far better options out there.
