2.68/5  rDev -5%
look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Serving type: One 32-ounce can. “JUN1112” is the best-by date printed on the bottom of the can.

Appearance: Poured into a 200 ml sampling mug. The color is clean, clear straw yellow. Three fingers of fluffy white head dissipated to leave trails of foam along the inside of the glass, a billowy lacing, and eventually a ring around the edge.

Smell: Sweet adjunct grain. It mostly smells like corn. There is a little lemon zest, some grassiness, and maybe a few toasted grains (it is actually reminiscent of popcorn).

Taste: It has a nice beery/grassy bite to it. It reminds me of drinking my first beer. The beeriness persists along with sweet adjunct grain, some toasted grain, and a little lemon zest.

Drinkability: It is not much, but it is cheap and decent. It’s a good lawnmower or tailgating beer — something light and straightforward to provide a good buzz before a game.

Serving Type is from a bottle into a pint glass

Appearance - Light gold with a lot of white head, lots of carbonation, very little lacing.

Smell - Smells like corn

Taste - Corn and not much else

Feel - Lots of carbonation (which I am partial to) very thin, goes down easy.

Overall - For the price it is not too bad.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Poured from can into pint glass

Appearance –Pours a medium golden color with a big white head. Big carbonation bubbles could be seen coming up through the brew. The head faded very fast leaving no lacing.

Smell – Nothing but corn here.

Taste – The taste is much of the same in the nose. Corn mainly, although there is a slight bit of citrus hop flavor that comes in at the end of the taste.

Mouthfeel – Thinner body and lots of carbonation. Easy to drink and good for the style.

Overall – Since I paid $1.50 for 32 oz. what should I expect? Slightly subpar in comparison to the standard American adjunct lager.
