750ml oil can into my liter mug.
Pours a clear medium gold with a decent one finger fizzy head. Somewhat surprising head retention and lacing.
Smell is sweet corn with some cereal grain thrown in. A little bit of grassy hops as well. Not too bad.
Flavor is corn and cereal grain along with a touch of toffee and hay. Some grassy hop flavor is way in the background but it is there. A light to moderate bitterness leads to a very crisp, dry finish. Soft mouthfeel with high carbonation.
Overall, it is what it is. A fairly bland, fizzy lager but honestly is isn't half bad. I wouldn't buy it all the time but the oil can is cheap and convenient on occasion.

From the infamous oil can. Brewed in Fort Worth Texas. Best by date Dec 1. 2014. So quite fresh.
Pours clear gold with two fingers of long lived white head. Lacings were spectacular and some head remained to the bottom of the nonic pint glass.
Smell was mostly white bread. Some herbal or grassy hops also.
Taste is mostly malts white bread or biscuit. The hops are mostly noticed in the dry finish.
Mouthfeel is good. Carbonation is bold and the body is light to medium.
Overall a suprisingly good beer for the style. Served as cold as possible. As the beer warmed it still tasted alright with no off tastes.
