Okay this is cheap beer, but it is what it is. I got this for around 9 bucks a case. Drink it AFTER you have a few or more good beers and it's not that bad. Wait until your taste buds are insensitive. Yes, it's pretty nasty.

I live in Milwaukee. I've tried literally everything. This beer is a small step above urine.

32 oz. can:

Pours golden with a short-lived head. Little to no lacing.

The smell is faint. Nothing really. Barely even a generic "beer" aroma.

The taste is of very light, watered down bread. Not too sweet. No bitterness. Nothing really. Abrupt watery finish.

It is as refreshing as cool, crisp water. Typical cheap beer water quality.

It's a cheap beer. There are better cheap beers. There are worse. Inoffensive as a whole.

A friend/neighbor gave this to me today. For the price I paid, not terrible. For the price it goes for...could be worse.

I really thought I had reviewed this when I lived in Milwaukee. Guess I never put the review in.

Light straw yellow with a billowy head. Smells is sweet corn, malts, rice, faint hops. Taste follows the nose. Very crisp and clean with good carb. Has a bite going down. Some slight alcohol presence. Definitely a solid choice for what it is. I prefer this over Bud, Miller, Pabst, Rolling Rock, Heineken. At $6.99 a 12 pack, how can you go wrong?

Okay, so this is a famously cheap, college beer. We mostly drank Beast Light in college but this is essentially the same thing. Pours too light to be called golden. There is a head but it dies to nothing quickly. Nose is grainy adjunct.

Flavor isn't anywhere near good, and is definitely sporting some corn, but doesn't make me quiver with its wretchedness, so that's a plus. Texture is thin and watery but that's really okay. This is made for keggers and tailgating, and for those purposes, it really isn't so awful.
