Pours a slightly golden color with a thin lace of head. Slightly sweet adjunct aromas. Not much taste, but not really any adjunct flavor either. Goes down quite smooth, slightly dry. I reviewed this poured in a glass, but I'm giving this a 5 for overall, because for some reason it's much better out of the can and it's the only good macro/adjunct beer I like.

Flashback #213 - Beverage of choice in my early drinking years, always had a soft spot for it and it drinks well too.

Not terrible; less sweet than typical BMC swill. Still certainly hop-barren and slightly over-sweet, but pretty drinkable. The drinkable but almost full mouthfeel is actually one if this beer's best qualities.
