I bought these in cans and poured it into a glass.

For a cheap beer, this is a pretty safe bet. Has a slight sweet, corn taste, decent head, and while not terrific it is quite drinkable. I have had way worse beer and not all of them were as low cost.

It's a great beer to buy in bulk if you are supplying free beer for a BBQ or something.

Well it says on the top of the can "America's Best Tasting Beer." If that was true, I'd move, now. This is one of those beers you should only drink if its free and even then, not always. It's your average watered down, nothing to it beer. Heavily carbonated. There's a hint of hoppiness which is nice but there's a weird sweet/metalic flavor that just shouldn't be there. It's a little malty and is drinkable. The bad tastes that are there aren't overbearing, but that's probably because simply everything about this beer is not overbearing. It smells like someone spilled beer on your couch three days ago, but to it's credit it also smells crisp and grassy, like a corn field. Aftertaste is nonexistent, which is nice, because as bad as this beer is, at least it doesn't stick around.
