This stuff has the color of a damn good craft beer, color of your piss if you dont drink water after a week or so. The taste and mouthfeel is oh man i dunno what the hell it is?!?! Only thing it has going is its looks, its darker than your regular american adjunct lagers so i thought what the hell until i tasted it, oh man it lives up to its name of a bunch of drunks on 3rd shift making beer! believe that folks!

Can poured into a glass

Two finger foam quickly settles into some freaky little foam islands. Scant lacings. Homey amber liquid with no visible carbonation.

Aroma of sweet corn, malts.

Sweet, malty, adjunct with more heft. Chewy, medium body. Very smooth start to finish.

Not bad and would drink it again if handed to me.

Poured slightly warm with a nice, cream-colored, foamy, thick head that soon settled to a ring and some scummy islands and a bit of lace. Color is a clear amber with some bubble trails. Aroma is fresh beer with a little malt. Flavor is dominated by corn sweet, has some malt, and carbonic tang with a hint of hop bitter. It's also shallow. Body is a little thin and carbonation a tad sharp. Finish is like flavor, trends medicinal, and is forgettable. This is just drinkable and will be my first/last.

I was really suprised on the smell! I was not expecting it to smell so nice and sweet. I took a sip and swore I had tasted this before. I had Dogbite high gravity lager and it tastes similar. However, this is much smoother. As for the appearance it has an amazing color!
