smell comprises corn. tastes sweet, strong corn taste, some maltiness and a nibble of hops. the beer is very easy to drink. perfect on hot days while working the yard or while playing darts with buddies. for the quality, the price can't be beat.
and hey, if it's good enough for clint eastwood, it's good enough for me.

Pours a clear light gold. Head falls quickly after a stiff pour. Thin grain, slightly gamey. No hop aroma. Taste is almost nonexistent at first with some thin grains in the middle and a very slight round bitterness at the end. Some funky flavors in the finish as well. Can't really put my finger on it. Mouthfeel is light with full tingly carbonation.

Overall a great inexpensive option if you want an adjunct lager, but don't want to drink anything by Anhouser-Busch InBev.
