This beer was surprisingly good for a cheap get drunk kinda beer. It has a clear amber red appearance. there is a this malt smell. It has a malty taste with a dry aftertaste. It is slightly skunky at the end. It goes down pretty hard since it is pretty volatile.

Oct2813 on the bottom. Didn't bother pouring this.

Meh. The alcohol can sort of be smelled and tasted, even though this beer is at 5.9%, which, as we craft drinkers know, really isn't that high at all. It's subtle, but there. The flavor is really sweet... sweeter than most AAL's I've had. Really gets cloying as I drink more and more, actually. Corn syrupy, to be honest. Sure the ABV's a bit higher, but not THAT high. The feel is really carbonated with a foaminess.

I've had worse, but not much worse. The corniness seems to come out of this more than other AAL's I've had. The trace of alcohol in the flavor/aroma confuses me. The flavor is too heavy on the corn. At $1.49 for a 24oz can it's what you'd expect... shitty quality, but it IS pretty drinkable. Probably wouldn't bother with this one again... though I will say that the price is hard to beat for the ABV. I'd rather have this over a Bud Light or mostly any other light beer, for sure.
