2.31/5 rDev -1.7%
look: 2.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.25
Poured from a 16 oz. can into my Duvel tulip glass. Consumed on 8/21/13.
A – Big, foamy, white head. Carbonation clings all over the inside of the glass. Pale, straw yellow in color, and as clear as the glass it's in. Head dies down fast and leaves lacing.
S – Slight cooked corn, skunky grain, but still mostly clean. Not much there, and no hops aroma. Mildly off putting, but clean enough to not be too offensive.
T – Very clean and crisp. Not much going on, but what little is does have going on is very agreeable. A little sweetness transitions into some mild bitterness in which the slightest hop flavor can be detected in the dry aftertaste.
M – Very light bodied. Low to medium carbonation. Pleasantly dry in the finish.
O – This is a very cheap beer with a bad rep, and I would argue a bad rap as well. I think it is great for the price point, which is $3.99 for a sixer of pounders by me. That makes it just about the cheapest, not-on-sale beer I can buy. However, it is light years away from great or even good, and I would likely be telling a completely different tale if it wasn't just out of a cold fridge.

Poured into a shaker pint glass.
A clear golden colored body with a lot of rising bubbles. A white fizzy head disappears quickly. No lacing.
The aroma is slightly metallic, with notes of corn and cereal grains.
Thankfully, the taste is slightly better than the aroma. Slightly metallic, maybe a hint of corn adjuncts. Not much else.
Mouthfeel is watery and carbonated.
Overall, I rated this in comparison with other adjunct lagers, and quite frankly this beer tastes as clean and refreshing as all the others at a cheaper price. This will be my cheap go-to beer when needed.
