12 ozers in a suitcase, poured into a Styrofoam cup in my motel one by one. Took about 9 of these before i could swig down a swallow without making a clicking sound with my cheeks. Once i got past that though, it was all i thought it could be. Got me cross-eyed, piss in my roomies sock drawer drunk. Left me with a skull splitting hangover the next morning. Everything I remember from it in college is still true.

Appearance: Completely translucent pale gold color with a small white frothy head.

Aroma: Not good. Stale grains and approaching offensive territory. Not quite skunky per say, but definitely in that ball park. Also a sweet corn smell in the background.

Taste: There is a general sweetness to the palate that helps mask the skunky off-flavor that you get with cheap beers like this one. Yet another American Adjunct Lager that would be impossible to pick out in a line-up of other beers of this style.

Mouthfeel: Surprisingly medium bodied but with lots of effervescence. Pretty crisp and refreshing in it's own right.

Final Thoughts: I have a hard time really slamming this beer too hard because it's basically just another average macro-lager. While not particularly enjoyable, this is just the usual Joe-Sixpack beer. I have no idea why anyone would choose to drink this more than once, but to each his own.
