as a person who can drink a fifth of whiskey in a sitting...this beer is a nice light change...and at 8 50 for a 12 pack at cumberlnd farms ...y no means a bragger but it way better than those that come in a ridiculous 40oz that gets warm half through

A- Pours pale golden and clear. A foamy white Two finger head sits in top for a bit then leaves a slight cap. A lot of active carbonation rolling to the surface of my brewski. Decent lacing throughout.

S- Typical adjunct lager aroma. That's all I've got to say about that.

T- Same as nose. Sweet malts, bready yeast, minimal hop balance. Overly sweet actually. Not too enjoyable.

M- Light bodied for a brew coming in at 8.1%. Still it's got a fizz like a over carbonated soda.

O- This is the perfect beer to bring to your next beer pong tournament hands down. You get the high alcohol content that is awesome, and absolutely no annoying flavor to contend with. You can get f'd up and not have to break the bank in doing so. So game on man, lets do this! In other words, gross.

One of my favorite high gravity lagers. It's not that offensive going down for what it is, not heavily carbonated. The alcohol bite is of course there but it's not overwhelming and washes away rather quickly. Up front it has a slightly sweet corny/bread like note to it. For about 2 dollars a 24oz of a cheap drunk it's not bad at all. Great to crack open on a late afternoon with some snacks and music.
