So I found this and the light version for three dollars a six pack each. Appearance was clear with a little bit of fizz but no real foam to speak of. I couldn't smell anything. The taste was mostly rice and water, very bland. The mouthfeel was basically seltzer. But for the price, I wasn't that shocked.

"I like Ed Hardy shirts because they save me the trouble of having to speak to someone before I can determine whether or not he's a retard." -Mark Twain

Having said that, MACRO SMACK DOWN. This vs. OM Light. And, yes, I know that this isn't quite a macro, so maybe just say "adjunct" smackdown or something to that effect. Or don't. It doesn't matter.

Pours pale with an uncontrolably fizz white head. Smells like adjunct grain, a light little dose of hops, and some lightly medicinal nodes.

Tastes like just those medicinal nodes. Only they're not light; they're large and scary. This tastes the way that Band Aids smell when you first take them out of the paper, sweetly astringent and plasticine. Gross.

Drain pour. Avoid. Old Milwuakee light *easily* wins this competition.

12oz can poured into a clear plastic cup. No discernible date.

Appearance - Clear straw body. One finger white head. Decent stick and retention.

Smell - Slight corny musk. Mild. Some sweetness.

Taste - Metallic. Musky. Smooth overall but pretty bad.

Mouthfeel - Light. Watery. Some carbonation, but the metallic astringency really kills it.

Overall Drinkability - Wow. This may be my first and only actual drain pour.

TheManiacalOne sent me a whole buncha CANs to help move The CANQuest (TM) that much closer to the # 500 milestone.

As a heavily tattooed (seventeen and counting) retired US Navy sailor, I CAN get behind the use of some of Ed Hardy's flash, in this case a tiger akin to the one on my right forearm, in marketing.

The Crack & Glug came off without a hitch and resulted in just better than a finger of rocky, bone-white head with decent retention. Color was a deep lemon-yellow with NE-quality clarity. More fizzy yellow beer as part of this ongoing madness. Nose was fairly standard, mostly corn with some lager sweetness underlying the adjuncts. Mouthfeel was watery and the taste was simply bland and unobtrusive. Finish was likewise bland and boring. It was not bad in terms of its flavor, it simply lacked anything to latch onto. Wow, what a ho-hum yawner. Completely unworthy of Mr. Hardy's name and I am sure he would not have approved.

Bought a single on clearance the other day for 69 cent, that should tell you something right there. Pours a straw yellow color with a thick white head and no lacing. Smells of straw, corn, and a little sweetness. Tastes very sweet with a little hop in the background, very subtle. Mouthfeel is medium with a major carbonation. Overall, it isn't the worst adjunct lager I've had.

Poured from a 12oz can into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a short white head that fades quickly and leaves a thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma is of light malts, adjuncts and a very faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready with flavors of adjuncts and grain followed by a light malt sweetness. The hops presence is very faint like most beers in the style. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and a little smooth, light body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

D: Not flavorful, not too filling since there isn't much to it, mild kick, even within such a poor style there are several other beers that I would choose first.

[Best served in a Lager Glass]

The pour was a clear yellow-amber in color with a small fizzy white head and had virtually no lacing at all.

The aroma was of a super light grain malt and very mild grassy hop and a almost non existent sweaty yeast with nothing else really standing out.

It tasted VERY, VERY lightly bitter in the beginning and finished with almost no flavor at all.

Mouthfeel was very watery in texture and extremely light in body with a fizzy carbonation.

Overall a super light, almost flavorless tasting beer. And at $10 a 6 pack, a large waste of money.

ok love the label, wow, but anyway where do these people get off making beer? enough rant but really? i dont even like the clothes.

A - Poured a very pale, super clear golden yellow. Nice big fizzy white head formed on top, faded slowly and left about a quarter inch thick layer across the top of the glass. Lots and lots of carbonation was very visible. Very light, lats of grain, some very light hoppiness in the back, but that was about it. your classic light lager, total maltiness and not much else, slight bready taste. A bit slick depite the carbonation. it was ok, nothing special just an average feel for a lager Very cold on a very hot day I could drink a few of these with ease, but other than that, not enough taste.

Overall very forgettable. This was a macro lager at its finest, which is average, better then a BMC but thats not saying much. If it was free at a bbq, I would have one, but no more buying it for me.
