A: This beer is surprisingly sexy. I was expecting pale straw, but received copper. Lacing is lively and active, but the head could use a bit of retention. Sexy nonetheless.
S: Yeast bite, a touch of cereal grains, and a dash of creamed corn.
T: Not what I was expecting. This is much too clean to be an ale, I'm calling shananegans. To me, this seems like a flawed amber lager, falling somewhere between Yuengling and High Life. The creamed corn that was in the nose has become the dominate player.
M: Very light and clean, with a touch of lively carbonation.
D: Not a terrible beer, but I wouldn't say that it's worth importing, we've got plenty of our own swill already. This would be a fine beer for whenever else a lifeless, imbalanced brew is called for.
EDIT: Immediately after reviewing this beer, I checked out the can and found the description, "Ale with caramel color added." In my eyes, this is cheating. Since this copper color was based on lies, rather than malt, I am deducting 2.5 points from the appearance score, bringing it from a 4.5 to a 2.

This beer is purely a novelty. I picked one up at the store with that in mind, no high expectations. It looks amazing, has a nice, dark amber color. Everything else went downhill- smells like a 40 of malt liquor, tastes kind of like one as well, im not going to get into detail its just not worth it. Mouthfeel is a bit better than the taste, overall, I give this a 2.5 below average.
