Pours a pale, clear yellow with a thin layer of soft, white head that hangs around for a while. The nose is grainy with a very, very faint grassy hop aroma. The flavor is light and grainy with a very faint bitter finish. The mouthfeel is light and smooth with a decent amount of carbonation.

I'm not entirely sure how I drank so much of this in college. It's not awful, but it's not good. I wouldn't make a habit of picking this up.

Smell is of old man beer: old wet grains. I don't know what it looks like because I drank it straight out of the can.
It tasted just like it smelled. It had a very nice old man beer flavour. That classic "bad beer" taste. It may have been a little over the top and it was surprisingly bad to pair with hot dogs, probably because it was a bit too boozy for that. But it really wasn't too bad. The taste might have been a little too "bold," but often times I like that in an adjunct lager. I don't know why this is rated so badly. It's got a good, classic taste to it. It's not tasteless or overly carbonated or starch or chemically. It just tastes like a good strong, old fashioned beer. Like an adjunct lager should. Decent stuff. Very...decent.
