24 ounce can, best by date of April 25, 2011 printed on the bottom of the can. Served in a pint glass, the beer pours a clear light gold color with an inch and a half frothy white head. Head retention and lacing are both OK. Aroma is mostly sweet and grainy malt, and a bit of corn and grassy hops. Taste is pretty much like the aroma, except that I don't pick up any hop flavors. No offensive aromas or flavors that I notice. Mouthfeel/body is light, it's thin and a bit watery. It's also well carbonated. Drinkability is good, it goes down pretty easy. For the style, it's a decent brew. I've certainly tried much worse! Not bad for $1.49 a can.

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.
