2.42/5 rDev +3%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3
Presentation: 40 oz cheap brown glass bottle with a twist off soda pop-like cap. No freshness date.
Appearance: Very pale yellow in colour, the clear clarity of a beer that was ultra filtered. White lace surprisingly stays for a while and sticks a bit.
Smell: Cooked corn in the aroma, an off smell of DMS (cooked veggie) also.
Taste: Very smooth with a feigned medium body that actually turns out to be light as the crisp carbonation unfolds. Corn grit flavour is all over the place. Malt? Very little malt on the palate, just some grainy flavours. Hops are light and seem to let a bit of cloying sweetness in the middle. Hint of alcohol flares out with a clean presence.
Notes: As close to not having much flavour at all, oddly it was not that bad going down compared to other cheap American lagers. This is the stuff to get when you only have a couple bucks in your pocket … good to have every once in a while to get the flavour of cheap lager and realize that there are so many great beers out there other than this.

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.
