Thanks to KiawahIsland for letting me try this beer. He said it was a bit of a goof when he gave it to me. He just wanted me to know it wasn't a part of our beer trade. Pretty funny, I like it.

A finger of foam forms, then immediately settles to a small cap of foam. Bright gold brass color with perfect clarity. There is some carbonation rising to the surface.

Musty, grassy, green vegetal aroma. I believe I smell the sweetness of corn.

After tasting this, I do think that corn is used as an adjunct. Very light sweet flavor that does remind of creamed corn. Not a lot of depth. As I taste the beer the musty aroma continues to get in the way. I think this is a more negative component vs. the flavor. It doesn't taste bad, there just isn't much character at all. But then again, this is marketed to people who value the Ed Hardy brand. I am NOT their target market. Slight mineral finish the more I taste the beer.

Body is light and carbonation is prickly.

It drinks mostly like water and is a beer for the beach or pool. It is what it is.

"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.

Pours to a thin white head that falls to a thin ring and does a bit of lacing. Color is pale gold-straw. Tons of carbonation visible. Aroma is practically nothing with a slight sweet graininess coming through. Flavor is weak adjunct grains and some residual sweetness and no detectable hop flavors. Dry and no aftertaste. Mouthfeel is light. Overall, slightly better than the Ed hardy Light.

look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 2

Appearance: pours a clear pale yellow color with a wispy head that breaks down immediately.

Smell: only a hint of grass is barely detectable by the nose.

Taste: weak malt profile with some hints of grass, green grapes, and almost no bitterness.

Mouthfeel: light in body. Crisp from start to finish with a clean aftertaste.

Drinkability: this is a beer to avoid. Glad I only picked up a single to try. I did not finish the glass as my tongue wanted some flavor with what I was drinking.

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.

They just have to be kidding. This beer is simply a waste of space in the glass. It is less than nothing.

Pours thin and barely (barely) yellow with a bright white fully head that collapses instantly. The aroma is, well, just like a Coors Light - cheap, generic. The flavor is almost nonexistent - there is only the faintest bit of grain to suggest that you are drinking beer and not a funky soda water. The mouthfeel is prickly and carbonated, but there is no finish, no follow-through. Not even the slightly sour funk that usually accompanies cheap versions of the style.

Do not bother with this beer under any circumstances. If you have the need for a cheap adjunct lager (and there is nothing wrong with that), go for Miller Light or Bud Light before lining up for this one.

Thanks to lukaski for the gimmick beer hook up.

Pours a nice golden, pilsner straw color with awesome bubbling and a superawesome head with strong retention. After the look of this beer wows you, theres nothing else worth mentioning. The aroma is of stale, wet, pilsner malt left in the maltsers silo tooo long. This beer tastes staler than it smells. Decaying grassy hops, stale or old lightly toasted malt, and grade F toasted corn and rice. he palate has nothing except adjunct funk and a flat, watery linger. I will never drink this beer again.

Pours a clean/clear golden yellow color, nice carbonation, nice one-finger foamy/creamy white head, with some minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is malty, very slight hop note. The taste is malty, very very slight hop note. Light body. Not Drinkable, why the fuck does the SLS buy this shit.

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.

Pours clear golden yellow with a thin creamy white head that leaves some lacing.

The smell is of buttered corn and husk.

The taste is of corn, husk a touch of soap. Sweet with little balance.

The feel is thin/watery with a bit of late fizz.

This is swill. Not totally undrinkable only because it is so mild. A gimmicky beer with nothing to it. I guess if you want the cool label, having one is tolerable.

A: This poured a clear pale straw color with some white head.
S: It smelled like sweet corn and bready malt and sour lager yeast, with a bit of lemon zest.
T: It tasted like dirty bready malt and sweet corn and sour lager yeast haphazardly blended with lemon zest and a bit of copper. The aftertaste was bland and dirty.
M: It was watery with moderate carbonation. Pretty weak body, but not surprising.
D: This was very similar to Death or Light Lager...and Bud Light. I suppose it was slightly less terrible than either of those, but not by much. This was still a worthless beer with no redeeming quality that I could discern. Aside from the designer label art, this beer was very poorly made and should be avoided.

It reminds me of malt liquor. It has nice straw colored body with just a slightly off-white head. A thin line of lace appears as the thick head disappears. The aroma is corny and somewhat medicinal. It has an average flavor at best. There are little tones of hops and malt and some fruity esters. The mouthfeel is thin with a small amount of bite.

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.

I poured this beer into my tumbler at 45 degrees. The beer had a nice golden color to it like normal beer. The beer poured a fair white head that did not last very long. believe it or not the beer smelled like beer! Just like it. The taste was a little sweet but not too bad. It was an okay beer that I would drink again, but it is nothing spectacular thats for sure.

Sampled this at a beer convention and immediately got flashbacks of marketing douche-bags running a beer company, Queer Beer in SF came to mind. I thought it was bad when there was a Von Dutch energy drink, but this is too much. Had the beer, it was light, awful, and just bad, it technical terms it was clear fizzy, lacking flavor, and seemed like it came out of one of those brew your own kits at Cost Plus. But the kicker to this striped shirt, red bull drinking crowd that was slinging the stuff, instead of talking about the beer, they were hyping up the alleged artist with scissors cutting up shirts and making them look all Ed Hardy and stuff, whatever that was. These guys need to be excommunicated from the beer world, if it succeeds I can see an Oprah beer on the way.

No!!! Just when I think the worst is over...
$1.99 at Tiger Qwikmart in Clemson, SC (a lil pricey!! Stone IPA is about the same price!)

A: Pours a 100% transparent straw color that produces a very fizzly and carbonated head that lasts for about 30 seconds and leaves no lacing along the glass. Very standard.

S: Ricey, grainy, wheaty, metallic, and slightly sweet notes. Perhaps corn. As it warms, a slight touch of alcohol is present.

T: Very similar to the nose...not very good at all. Light and plain, watered down and flavorless. Slightly sweet, and corn bready.

MF/D: You know, the mouthfeel is not as bad as I have experienced before. A little fuller (yes apparently it is possible) than the others. Also, the carbonation is less intense, which is a major problem in some of the other adjuncts...But sadly, this is really the only thing going for it.

Overall, not impressed (you won't be either). I am impressed that I managed to drink this whole bottle without throwing a random fist pump or threaten to break a bottle over someones head.

Picked a single for $1.79 at local package store.
The clerk asked me why I was buying that(the beer)?
Explained that I had to review it.

Decanted to a pint glass.

Pours super light gold/yellow with a thin white head that does not lace. Light to medium carbonation.

Generic smell - corn?

Generic taste, but not as punchy as Old Mil.

Really not worth the time, but cool label.

A: A brilliant brass pour produces a seashell white head, initially a finger high, that quickly lapses to a near polished surface within the first minute of pour. A straggling carbonation bubble or two randomly appears out of nowhere and disappears just as quickly. The head dissipates almost immediately leaving not much chance of a lacing, which I suppose is typical per style. Im guessing this is a American adjunct by style so will take that into consideration, but one thing ive learned is that if you have to label your beer as premium, then a yugo has a better chance at being considered a sports car.

S: Dried corn with some leafy green stalks first appear on the nose. The strength is reserved, again typical by style. Held in check at adjunct level.

T: Light mentions of caramel popcorn sweetness come through with hints of honey are detected but still comes off a bit like watered down sweetness with a cheapened caramel grain fix. The palate is light and watery lacking a backbone while there is a fruitiness of honeydew and applesauce on the close with just a touch of hops to balance.

M: Light bodied with a watered down honey slickness and texture void of any effervesce. A still hold and you can almost forget its there.

D: An empty experience im guessing more suited for the local crowd who like their beer weak and watery and on the back of a lawnmower. Was it bad, not repulsively so, but it certainly didn't reach out and make any attempt to show any attempt at craft or quality. Unimpressive, like a caramel sweetened macro beer, which I guess that is what they were shooting for.

Pours a weak, watery yellow. 1-finger head at least gives the appearance of a decent pour. No retention and some lacing.

Nose is corn, rotting vegetation, and lemons. Not awful, but you can smell it from here.

Is this supposed to have a taste? There is literally nothing up front. No malt, no hops, no citrus, nothing. I'm getting weak, weak, weak lemons in the finish. It's not bad, but I've had water with a lemon slice that had more flavor than this.

No feel at all. Same feel as a glass of water.

No reason to drink this ever again. My wife got me a six of this for Christmas (in her defense, she really likes Ed Hardy stuff and she did get me several good beers like Maredsous 12, Anchor Christmas, Heavy Seas and a few others). The bad news is that somehow I have to get the other 5 of these out of the house. Maybe I can marinate meat in them?

My friend received one of the "Beers of the World" boxes in a work secret santa gift exchange. We decided to do a bad beer tasting tonight as a result.

A: The usual pale, pale yellow color with a bit of a white head that then subsides (very quickly). There are lots of tiny carbonation bubbles.

S: The smell is completely awful. It's skunky and has lots of corn and rice. A bit of metal, and just a general odor about it that I can only describe as old garbage.

T: Almost exactly the same as the nose. It seems as though something has spoiled in the bottle--and by something, I mean a compost pile that baked in the Pomona sun.

M: Light, fizzy, and dry.

D: Absolutely the worst beer I've ever had. Normally I try to find something redeeming about the beer, but there just wasn't really anything positive here.
