Bought a 24 FL. OZ. (709 ml) can of this from a Shell Gas Station in St. Louis, MO for $1.89 (happy hour early!?!). Poured from the Gold/Maroon colored can into a 12-14oz clear cup. Has APR 16 12 on the bottom of the can.

Aroma- Tons, tons, tons of malt. Light grains in the background.

Appearance- pours a 3 finger, frothy head that lasts for an unusually long time. Crystal clear, light golden body. Leaves thick lacing.

Flavor- Light grains, touch of sweetness, and strongly malted. No bitterness or anything special.

Mouthfeel- Light bodied, Medium-High Carbonation, Smooth, but then finishes with bit of grit and not anything I want to remember...

Overall Impression- Just wanted to fit in as I left the ghetto gas station with a 24 ozer in my hand with a lottery ticket. Would NEVER come back to this brew but was still interested in trying. I would avoid if I were you!

Used to be my go to brew when I was younger. Actually used to sport an O.E. shirt in those days. Man, I was cool. Anyways, it's been a while, so here we go...

Poured from a 24oz can into a FW pint glass...

A - Pours yellow with a one finger head that dissipates at a hasty pace. Lacing is minimal...

S - Sweet malts and corn. Alcohol doesn't come through very strong...

T - Pretty much follows the nose. Malty with a good amount of corn in the mix. Very earthy tasting. Alcohol is pretty well hidden here...

M - Very watered down. Light bodied with a good amount of carbonation...

O - I remember this one being a little more sweet. Not half bad. For the price, you can't really beat this if you looking for a cheap buzz. Thinking I will drink the rest out of the can...
