Believe it or not I found this surprisingly … ok. After drinking far too much Bud, Bud Lite, PBR and Lone Star over the years (how’s that for brand loyality?) I found this a refreshing break from the same musty flavors I’m used to in mass produced lagers. Not saying this was incredibly good (oh lord no!) but I’d have another one if it was ice cold in a cooler at a friend’s birthday party and that was my only option. Which is how I ended up drinking this in the first place.

It pours a piss yellow gold with foam that disappears without a trace.

There’s what I can best describe as a musty lager aroma. It’s faint but there.

Flavor is smooth with a clear finish. It’s slightly musty and some corn sweetness round it out. Honestly, there ain’t much here but what there is does not offend my delicate sensibilities as much as I had expected.

16oz can into pint glass

Look is a pale golden color with a 2 finger pure-white head. Suprisingly good lacing. With a little more golden color this would look like every beer you've seen in a commercial, ever. Smells like a barnyard; hay, must, corn, more metallic mustiness. The feel is all water at first, with a slight heaviness to it, with a crispy carbonated finish. Taste is a palatable mix of corn, hay, and musty underarm.

Overall, this beer does what it intends well. It is light, inoffensive, beer-y tasting beer. Plus you can get a six pack of pint cans for around $5. Not too shabby.
