Pours out a nice golden color with a thick soapy slightly off white head. Darker than an average macro lager in color on both the body and the head. Nice streaming bubbles.
Smell is very bready with a metallic watery smell. Maybe even a bit of sweetness on the scent. The sweet does not smell like a corn sweet.
Taste is also a touch sweet and malty. Maybe the sweet smell is coming more from the malt than the adjunct? The taste also has a slight touch of metallic water taste as well.
Mouth feel borders on the medium side with a slick wet finish.
Overall the beer really does not taste that bad. With a 5.9% ABV there is definitely more flavor than just an average macro lager. The metallic smell is more promininent on the nose than in the taste and really does not detract much. I look forward to seeing what the new recipe of this beer will offer up in addition to a higher ABV.

Good! Flat out! Now that I've had the 6.9 alv 24 ounce it will be my beer until I find something else, and I'm not looking. Great taste, smooth going down, looks inviting, feels light but after a few it's a sledge hammer. Overall 5 star for me. I grew up drinking Old English, Schlitz Malt liquor, Colt 45. So this is in my wheelhouse

For the kind of beer it is I found this better than expected. (32 ounce can was like 1.50 at a local supermarket).

Enough alcohol for a buzz, not so much you become an obnoxious drunk. We'll see how I feel in the morning.
