This beer seems promising (for what it is) when purchased, a cheap $6 pack of tall boys that should be better than your typical rolling rock or High Life cheap sixer. It unfortunately isn't at all. This beer has very dirty undertones. It's actually the most prominent flavor there. If their motto is "It's the Water", maybe they should invest into Brita filters. Not recommended.

THE choice for alcoholics of yesteryear! The only people who drink this are legitimate drunks and hobos, and well....... you get the point.

you know, for a cheap and adjunct beer, this is one of the lesser of all evils. its consistent, its clean and light, and it is entirely devoid of the usual metallic and corny off flavors we are all accustomed to in these beers. no skunkiness, just boring bland yellow fizzy beer. i quite like the mouthfeel of this one, light and very active with the bubbles, good morning beer, beermosa stuff, and one of those beers you can just hammer all day and never get real messed up from. im not sure i could drink enough of this to get seriously drink, especially given all the carbonation, i might pop first. good as an afterthought beer, or a no thought beer, and frankly far better than the bud light of the world for this purpose. i see the appeal, and i think its better than most others in its class.

Best by 1/5/15.

Pours a clear gold with a foamy off-white head that settles to a partial film on top of the beer. Foamy streaks of lace form around the glass on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, cooked vegetable, and sugary aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, corn flake, and sugary flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer that is fairly drinkable, but there is definitely a strong element of sugar and corn flakes that I am getting from this one.

Serving type: can.
