12oz can into a Duvel tulip. A friend of mine brought a sixpack of this over to watch a game, and left one in my fridge. Always fun to tick off another brew from the Bottom 100, right?

A: Clear, pale, watery greenish-yellow body under a finger of fine white froth. Mediocre retention, very light lace. Boring.

S: Wow, light is right. This has practically no aroma at all - only some faint corn and a hint of fruitiness. Really weak, even for the style.

T: Light, chalky, corny, and thoroughly boring. Light graininess on the aftertaste. Unpleasant.

M: Watery at first, with some slow-building carbonation filling in behind. Meh.

O: Not the worst cheap beer out there, but certainly not the best. Boring to the max.

Cheers!
