This was probably my first beer. I hated it and it made me stay away from beer for several years. Now that I've developed my taste a bit, I've decided to revisit this one and see if it was really as bad as I remember.

a - medium gold bodied with a pure white head that dissipates after a few minutes.

s - Sweet malts, syrup, just kind of smells like general baked goods.

t - starts sweet, has a corn like bite that I don't like. Strong linger.

m - not much there

o - well not as bad as I remembered it, but still lacks character and fullness, and has a weird aftertaste to it.

Serving type: can
