Really only bought this beer for the can for my collection. I had heard nothing but negative things about it. I was not disappointed; it was bad.

A standard lager with nothing special to offer but definitely a refreshing beer and fun to drink out of a massive can.

Reviewing this one based on the style, not compared to other beers.

Did a bit of a hard pour, and poured a light straw yellow color with a large white head that did leave some lacing.

Smell is corn and grain, reminds me a bit of bread.

Has a definite taste of corn and malt up front, but has a bit of a funky aftertaste. It is a touch on the sweet side.

Feel is a bit watery, but the carbonation does add a tingle that improves the feel a bit.

Overall, one of the better examples of the style. Seems most mass beers like this are very watery and have almost no flavor, this one at least has flavor. I can see how something like this would appeal on a hot day, it goes down easy, and at least to me, is a bit more than just water with a touch of beer flavoring.

750 ml oil can into an imperial pint. Bottom stamped Apr2015

A- A sloppy, partial pour creates a huge, fluffy white head atop a clean, straw body with medium-heavy carbonation. The head drops to a thin foam that leaves some pretty good rings. A more controlled, second pour makes more like a 1 finger head.

S- A mix of husky grains and sweet and slightly tart, berry-like aroma. Some cooked corn when it warms up a bit.

T- It starts out pretty good for the style, lots of malt sweetness with some creamed corn flavor. It gets really dry and a little overly clean in the finish with some light, grassy hops.

M- Medium-light body with a bite from a higher level of carbonation and a little hop tingle. Somewhat "pop-like."

O- This used to be a splurge-type beer in college. I could see drinking one after mowing the lawn or around the grill, but it doesn't set itself apart from its truly cheap, domestic counterparts. More of a thirst quencher than something to savor.

I think my rankings are off because the system detected an outlier, but to me this is a reasonable AAL. I haven't drank one in many years, but I preferred it to Coors Lite way back when.

Pours a straw yellow slightly on the dark side compared to other adjunct beers. A frothy head of modest size ensues, the lace retention not so much.The smell was the only thing that really bothered me. It had a graininess to it that didn't feel fresh. In addition, there was an odor of cooked vegetables that was not so pleasant. The taste surprised me however. A smooth and clean taste that was malty and grainy. Not complex at all but not so watery that it rendered it flavorless. The feel was light bodied with moderate carbonation. Fairly drinkable beer. Not my favorite but not as bad, for me at least, as it's portrayed here.
