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.

12oz : pint glass
Clear, golden yellow with a thick, creamy white head with decent retention.
Fairly typical adjunct lager profile. Balanced flavors of grainy, lightly sweet malt and the faintest grassy-ish hop profile.
Medium body, foamy carbonation.
Nothing special, but for an American Adjunct Lager it certainly isn't a bad beer.
