A - Poured out a pale yellow color with a bubbly, white, one-finger head that did not last long nor leave any lace.

S - It smelled of corn and grain adjuncts. Also, slightly metallic.

T - It tasted very bitter, but not a good bitter. It mostly tasted of corn and some very weak hops.

M - It was fairly crisp and dry. A very light-bodied beer.

D - This is not a good beer, even for a session or lawnmower beer. Drinking a couple one night did not make me feel good.

Pours a nice golden color with moderate carbonation and a lace of head. So far so good. Smells like all the other putrid adjunct lagers. Goes down kinda harsh, highly carbonated, dry and a little bitter. One of the worst adjunct lagers let alone light lagers...avoid

Poured into a pils glass from a 12 oz. can. The official brew of my dad and thus the official brew of me back in my thieving highschool days.

2.5 A: Clear yellow color. This is actually a good bit darker than most of its bretheren. Two fingers of frothy white head that didn't last very long, but did leave a few whisps of lacing.

1.5 S: There's no getting around the fact that this doesn't smell good. Big rice component and without much in the way of malt. Hops aren't even worth mentioning, but I just did, so oh well.

1.5 T: It's definitely as bland as the nose, but it doesn't taste as ricey as you would expect. That said, there's still no sign of malt or hops. A sorry excuse for beer.

3.0 M: Light body (obviously), but it's not too bad overall. It's quite creamy for how light it is. The carbonation is high, but not as obnoxiously high as some.

1.5 D: It is what it is. I'm just glad I'm not in highschool anymore.

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.

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.
