Poured from bottle into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a clear golden amber color with a one finger head of pure white foam. The head fades very fast leaving only a trace of lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma of the brew is very skunky with a moderately strong smell of grain and hay. Along with these smells comes some sweet aromas of a corn syrup, producing a rather skunky adjunct aroma overall.

Taste – The taste begins with a bit of corn syrup sweetness mixed with some bready tastes. As the taste advances some grassy and hay flavors develop along with a little bit of skunk. In the end, a little bit of caramel and grain come to the tongue as well.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is thin with a carbonation level that is rather average. More carbonation and even less body would have likely been better for the skunky, corny, and grainy tastes of the brew.

Overall – Not a very good brew in my mind. If I am looking for an adjunct I would much rather go a Bud, Coors, or Miller over this. Not really a worthy competitor in the adjunct category.

This is an okay beer. Its barley flavor is a bit overpowering for me - not much else going on. I know some people like that, so I respect it for what it is. It's still not my favorite and all comes down to just being okay.
