I did not pour this into any glass. However, i give it an average rating for appearance, due to the typical ML label design and the color of the brew.

Smell is also average, for the style, very faint corn notes. No hop presence here.

Taste is rather smooth and malty. Not at all harsh and it is rather pleasing.

Mouthfeel is kind of thick, but not offensive. Goes down easy.

This is an entry level malt, but a good one at that. I've you've only ever had Magnum, then you are in for a treat with this. Otherwise, it's basic. But good basic.

Poured from 40 oz bottle into grenade pint glass

Appearance – Pours a medium golden color with a big billowy white head. The head is composed of big carbonation bubbles; the ones that are seen rising through the beer. The head fades very fast and gives way to a very light amount of lacing.

Smell – The aroma is heavy in corn and has a slight metallic odor.

Taste – The taste is of corn and rice in nature mixed with a metallic flavor. Some astringency comes in and mixes with the other present flavors. There is a little bit of bitterness that comes in the end and leaves a sting on the tongue. It is actually sorta good as it leaves a rather nice tingle and gets rid of some of the less pleasant metallic and astringent flavors.

Mouthfeel –Rather average body with a medium level of carbonation. It helps make the brew easier to drink and is good for the style.

Overall – Not really the best malt out there. With the price of this 40 oz at only at $2.25, what should I expect though, right?
