I got this from a buddy, because I don't think I could ever buy it. Poured into a pint glass.

Color is a clear yellow, very straw like. Thin white head that leaves no lacing.

Smell is very grainy and light. Not to much going on here. Taste is nothing pleasing. Very grainy and no hops seem to be present. I really couldn't drink to much of this beer.

Mouthfeel is pretty smooth, but over carbonated. The taste is really bad, that you can't keep the beer in your mouth for very long.

Overall, I wouldn't ever buy this or recommend it to anyone. I can see this as being a college beer pong beer, but that is about it.

12 ounce can poured into a pilsener. "Best by" date of 09/10-2012.

Appearance: This was a surprise. Poured a pale yellow with about 2 fingers of fizzy white foam that actually rose above the top of the glass however retention time was short. Not crystal but very clear with some carbonation bubbles.

Smell: First thing to my nose was a slight malt aroma. This was soon overcome by a pungent grainy smell.

Taste: Very little.What is there is bland and grainy. No hop bitterness to speak of. No malt.

Mouth Feel: Thin and watery. Very little carbonation bite. Not a dry finish but not sweet either.

Overall: It is a light beer and not one of the better ones out there. The price is good about $7 for a 12 pack so if you want something to quench your thirst with a lititle bit of a beer bite this will do it.

I'm a little embarrassed to actually be reviewing this beer, but since its my granddads favorite (and i feel obligated to drink it with him when he offers) i figured i would go ahead with it.

I usually just drink it out of the can but for reviews sake, i poured one out into a pint glass.

This beer is better off not being seen.

Typical cheap beer straw, piss yellow coloring. Absolutely no head or lacing to speak of.

Smells of corn and an almost sulfur like smell.

Taste is almost non existent. I must say, you could conceivably drink a few of these as they go down like water.
