Can: Poured a light yellow color lager with a foamy head with better then average retention. Aroma of adjunct is quite powerful and dominated the aroma. Taste is also heavy on the adjunct with some corn and some light alcohol notes. Body is creamier then most macros. Overall, this is another bland macros with maybe a bit more of a creamy body and better head retention.

It was on sale for 99 copper Lincolns for a 24 oz. can at Lowes Food. That's why.

Decent head and color. Golden straw and thin but present lace. Nose is noxious corn and rice or something else unpalatable. Flavor is a dull sawdust and sweet maltv sludge. Plenty of carbonation is actually a benefit, which is rarely a good sign.

I expected little when i bought this and it met my expectations perfectly. It was cheap, however.

Pours your usual piss yellow colour, common with most adjunct lagers. Smells of corn, corn syrup, and metal. Tastes of breads, grains, and metal. Mouthfeel is thin and watery. Overall, your typical iced beer. Meant to get drunk off of. A shame this was one of the few offerings at a wedding I attended.

look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5

A small amount poured from the 22 oz. can into a pint glass for appearance and aroma, the rest consumed from the classy can.

A - very pale, translucent gold with a mountain of bubbly, white, dense head that has decent retention

S - warm, metallic, grainy, sweet

T - warm, apple, metallic, sweet, grainy

M - smooth, crisp, light to medium bodied, warm alcohol

This is really not good. The metallic and apple notes dominate and the alcohol is far too warming and offensive. I'll never pick this up again.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

Brewed in Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Clear straw yellow with a fast disappearing cap of white foam. A bit of streaky lace. Aromas of corn and grain, slight fruitiness. Bitterness was light, more corn and grain sweetness, plus a sharp mineral finish and light sourness that didn't sit well with me. Light bodied, carbonation a bit on the higher side of average, dry and slightly coarse in texture. This is not a beer that I enjoyed and I doubt I'll ever go back to it. It's not even "fun" in a slumming sense, like Molson XXX or OE800 are.

Unremarkable pour, yellow, no head despite plenty of bubbles. Aroma would make you think this beer was 11% abv at minimum, no hop smell, no malt, cooked/steam vegetables like they had in the lunch line at school.

Taste, not as bad, a little sweetness tempers the alcohol heat, which isn't all that much for an ice beer I guess, but damn if the aroma had me scared. Colder the better with this one. High carbonation allows the beer to not get stuck on your palate. Bitterness grows exponentially for every degree warmer it gets. Keep 'er cold, and they stay slick.
