Pours a finger of surprisingly creamy off white head. Color is a clear gold.

Aroma: Grains, corns, and metal. I also get a slight chick pea aroma.

Taste: Taste is similar, but worse. More awkward flavors blending together. Kind of reminds me of a liquid shepherds pie with the corn and pea flavors blending together.

Mouthfeel: Bland and crisp. Light bodied with a high amount of carbonation. Ends buttery.

Overall, this was a terrible beer. Much worse than any other adjunct lager. Just not drinkable.

Oh man, another CAN from Minhas to make me wish that I had never begun The CANQuest (TM)! I kid you not, their beers leave me sadder than any AmeriCAN Malt Liquor ever has.

The Crack & Glug came off without a hitch and I had over a finger of foamy bone-white head briefly until it just passed over like a cloud on a windy day. Color was a deep golden-yellow with NE-quality clarity. Nose smelled like green apples. That's it. Acetaldehyde and probably due to their yeast strain. Mouthfeel was fizzy like pop and had a bunch of bubble gum-like flavors on the tongue, including apple and grape. Jeez-O, man, but this bordered on flat out disgusting. Finish was Gag City Central, leaving me thankful for something to eat to kill the taste. My oh my, but Minhas never fails to disappoint. I wanted a beer real bad and I got a real bad beer, as is their standard. This is not going in my cooler or in the cooler of anyone with whom I am associated if I CAN help it!

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!

This is the worst beer i've ever had, the initial taste is like rotting bananas and the after taste like rotting pears, just absolutely atrocious. I paid around 8.50 for a 8 pack and it still wasn't worth the price.
Nothing good about this beer, other than the alcohol.

Reviewed from notes.

A. Deep golden color yet transparent. Brief surge of foam falls apart in twenty seconds without any lacing.

S. First sniff reminds me of the odor of those horrible stale 'circus peanut' mushy candy mallow things. A second later it resolves into a green apple jolly rancher... This is NOT how a lager should smell. A lager smells clean and fresh, not like candied fruit.

T. Sugary sweet corn and vague rice krispies styled cereal grain. I'm actually somewhat surprised at the fact that I can detect some grain content in the flavor given how the aroma was. No hopping was detected. A chalky sort of mineral aspect appears in the finish as the brew warms up somewhat.

M. Thinner side of medium body, light carbonation. Finish remains sweet and sugary throughout, which is not a great lager characteristic.

If only the can did not have the word 'lager' printed on its side I would have been allowed to be a lot more lax with rating this one. It would have made for a fairly decent malt liquor, for example, but it just isn't marketed as such.
