25.4oz can
Served in a pilsner glass

A - It is a clear, golden elixir. A fleeting white head makes an appearance and vanishes.

S - I get some soapy grain.

T - There is not much to speak of. I think I've had light beers with more flavor. It pains me to this this beer had more flavor when I was in college. What a delicate and untrained palate I had.

M - Thin

O - I haven't tried this beer in years thinking that I did not like the taste. Hell, I would be happy with some sort of taste.

On tap at The Outback with my folks
Comes to the table a clear pale golden color with a smallish but disappearing white head and a steady stream of carb bubbles. The aroma is lackluster at best, sweet grainy malt with a hint of corn and some light floral hops. The flavor is mild lightly sweet with hints of honey and a grassy grainy flavor thrown in there. Medium to light body with a moderate to heavy level of carbonation and a sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Not the greatest beer in the world, but it was a step above the other macros offered on tap. Note to self Sam Adams was the better choice today.

Poured from the can into a nonic pint glass, one of those big 750ml suckers... sigh the things I do sometimes... can says product of USA.

Out of the big can it looks like a gusher but it actually holds up with control pretty good. Shocking white head three to four fingers deep, quite varied sized bubbles, and some retention, but very soapy and falling. Body color comes off more of a bright crystal polished brass, very hard to see the fast rising carbonation it looks microscopic. The beer doesn't look that bad at all, it looks like something I could drink.

Nose is a strange spice and almost phenolic hop presence, mixing with a very dry arid grain. It seems kind of burnt and toasty, mixing with a very light lager sense. Interesting, odd, doesn't smell too bad, but nothing real inviting.

The mouthfeel on this is a good solid thickness to it, carrying a malt density well. Finish is very fleeting with a spiced strange hop but not bringing much else. A real strange burnt almost but not quite vegetative taste. Hints of cigarette ash, and a real medicinal bitter on the tongue leave on the aftertaste.

Overall this is odd in that it's a real easy drinking beer, but strangely the aftertaste is not sitting well with me. However, if I continue drinking it, it masks this, until I swallow. Strangely passable but a real weird aftertaste on this brew. I could live with it, but there's more to beer than this.

Poured from a 25.6 Oz. can into a lager glass. Beer pours a standard yellow with a massive, bubbly white head. The smell is strongly of skunk and some corn flakes, And perhapsa faint amount of grains? Nothing impressive. The taste is pretty good. Some grains, Perhaps some creamed corn in the mixture? Pretty standard of an AAL. The mouthfeel though, Pretty much feels like any other AAL. Over all, Would I buy it again? Sure, If I needed an easy drunk for cheap
