Do i feel lucky?
Macro color and look..very fizzy head. Started pouring a bit on the agressive side and thought whoa..overflow...nope...just slacked off the pour and the fizziness took care of the rest. Noted a hint of lacing though.
No real aroma noted..which is good ( no corn, skunk, cabbages, sewage) and bad ( what the hell is in here...vodka, methanol, ,) So i can neither slam or endorse.
Taste..pretty innoculous..no real bad flavors, but none of the good one's, ( bold cracker like malt, crisp hop) that make a good macro lager. This has a bit of a bite @ first, nothing nasty, and then a hint of sweetness..again nothing nasty. Finish is quite drying.
Given how fizzy it was on the poour, the carbonation level seems a bit flat.
Scoring it average on drinkability given it's A: Very affordable read: cheap) and goes down much easier than most of it's cheap brethern

Picked a 473 ml can up from the beer store since it happened to be $2.00 CDN and I was return 20 cans @10 cents apiece. Poured in a pint glass.
Appearance - Aggressive pour yielded over 2 fingers of foam which did dissolve quickly but was nonetheless decent. A weak off yellow color is featured. The beer itself just from its appearance looks thin but we will see. Some lacing in the glass.
Smell - Grains, grassy notes. Both are faint and there's not much there. This would be expected from a light beer but at almost 5%, I was expecting something on those nose for better or worse.
Taste - Like the nose, thin tasting a vague sweetness that assuredly comes from the adjuncts.
Mouthfeel - Wet, thin with minimal aftertaste. Almost feels like it should be a light beer because there is very little of substance. Some carbonation and its probably the right amount, but still just "meh".
Overall - Wet and would do the job on a hot summer's day but unless you're looking for a a cheap fix of mediocre beer, I can't see anyone sitting down and enjoying this. On the positive side, if you don't mind the beer, at almost 5% it could be a cheap drunk beer.
