I'm getting classy today, guys. PBR tall boy, in it's infinite glory, poured into the appropriate glassware.... a pint sized plastic cup.
A - Pours a clear, light, yellowy gold. A quick 1 fingerish head that dissipates almost instantly with the tiniest hint of lacing. The epitome of eye twinkling glory for the flat broke college student.
S - Pretty clean on the nose. Not a lot to detect. Some light notes of roasted corn with the coarseness of corn husk, and a touch of aluminum type metal. It's enough to make your mouth water.... if you can smell it over the Marlboro smoke.
T - Coarse grains, and corn husk - much like the smell. Same metallic sensation with a a hit of hops almost trying to break through. Not sweet, not bitter, just coarse grain and corn husk. A nectar of that gods that sets your tongue ablaze.... if you can keep your mullet hair out of your cup.
M - Fairly noticeable carbonation at first which, strangely, falls flat on the tongue pretty quickly. Fairly thin, but enough to know it's there.
D - Drinks like water. You could have at it all day, and many do. Pairs wonderfully with that Ballpark frank, fried bologna sandwich, or pimento cheese.
For what it is, it's a good, easy drinking beer for those lazy summer days. Definitely better than BMC.

Ok. This is not a top shelf beer. This stuff is cheap, corn-heavy adjunct lager. That being said, it's dang tasty when it's hot out, has a little more ABV than your run of the mill 3.2, and I love that when I bust one out, very few people swarm around to get their hands on one, making it an even better value! Pale yellow in color, It's got enough malty body to separate it from the miller/coors/bud barley pop, while still being easy to drink in quantity. No real discernible hoppiness, especially compared to my standard IPA/DIPA fare. Refreshing, but not a light beer. Taken for what it is, I believe it to be a great beer, when limited to class-comparison. I'm drinking one right now, as it's 85, sunny, and I'm grilling. Boom.
