look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

24 oz can poured into a pilsener glass

Appearance - clear straw color with white head

smell - corn, wheat, barley

taste - sweet corn, grain, barley

mouthfeel - sweet upfront, light bodied, low end carbonation, slightly bitter, but goes down smooth

overall - for a cheap beer, this is inoffensive, worth a shot at nostalgia

Pours out golden with minimal head that fades to white blotching with no lacing. Smells of faint corn cob, grain husk, and cooked vegetables. Taste consists of malt sweetness, grains and a little booze, tad bit of bitterness. Mouthfeel is crisp, light, and refreshing with moderate carbonation. Nice change from some of the bigger beers out there. Overall, it's cheap and refreshing, not much else going on here.

A = yellow and clear with a nice head

S = some malt and not much else

Taste - minimal flavor. Some grainy taste.

Mouthfeel - watery and light

Overall - easy drinker and light. Definitely a light summer beer to substitute for bud or something else.
