I want to thank my brother in-law, Micah, for leaving this gem, along with 5 of its friends in my fridge this weekend. I think its friends are going to wait for their dad to come back to KC.

Poured a 12oz can into a Miller Lite/Harley Davidson pint glass. This beer poured a fizzy, straw yellow with a massive white head that quickly disappeared into nothingness. One of the worst head retentions I've ever seen in a beer. The aroma is canned corn with a bit of a sulfur funk to it. The aroma kind of reminds me of the funk you get from a green bottle. The flavor is straight up corn flakes. The mouthfeel is light with a decent dry finish. Like I said earlier, I have 5 more of these and I don't think I will finish the rest.

12oz can poured into a pint.

Pale yellow with nothing to it. Quick foam head reduces to nothing.

Very clean. Nothing to it once again.

Very light. Smooth and crisp makes it sorta refreshing. Almost no flavor other than that. Malts and cereal grains are there but the hops seem to be simply "added". Dry finish.

Refreshing and cheap, but not something I will buy again.
