473 ml can served cold into a pint glass.

Appearance - Clear, pale golden yellow color. 2 fingers of white head with some retention. Sparse lacing. Lots of bubbles rise to the top of the beer. Looks decent.

Smell - Some adjuncts and light grassy and grainy aromas. Nothing offp putting and nothing powerful here either.

Taste - Fairly bland with some corn which makes the beer a bit on the sugary sweet side. Retains a clean and refreshing taste too.

Mouthfeel - Clean crisp and refreshing. Medium- high carbonation.

Overall . Not a lot to say other than a better than expected AAL and definitely preferred to many of them.

Can't think of anything good to say except for maybe the price?

473ml Can

Appearance – Clear light yellow colour with an average size fizzy white coloured head. There is a below average amount of carbonation showing and there is some fairly good lacing. The head lasted for around 5 minutes before it was gone.

Smell - Grains, bread, corn, malts

Taste & Mouth - The beer has a high amount of carbonation. I can taste bread mixed with malts, and lots of corn. There really isn't a whole lot of tasting going on.. it drinks like a light beer. It ends with a corn syrup sweet aftertaste.

Overall – Figured I'd give this one a shot based on the 'Bros' review.. but it's really nothing special. Its very light tasting and has a lot of adjunct qualities. I guess it would work well for a camping/lawn mower beer.
