Poured from a can into a pint glass

Appearance – The beer pours a light golden color with a fizzy white head. The head fades super fast leaving almost no lace on the sides of the glass.

Smell –The aroma of the brew is mostly of a corn smell mixed with a little bit of a musty aroma.

Taste-The taste begins with a sweeter corn syrup taste mixed with a little bit of a grain. As the taste moves on some lighter flavors of caramel and even more corn come to the tongue. In the end one is left with a somewhat more sweet corn cereal taste to linger on the tongue.

Mouthfeel – The body of the brew is very thin and light with a carbonation level that is rather average. The thin body is prime for the sweeter and subdued tastes of the brew. A little higher carbonation would have been slightly better for the lightness of the brew, but even so, the feel was alright overall.

Overall – For a 4% abv. brew that clocks in at only ~95 calories I am not going to expect a flavor powerhouse. Nothing is really off in the taste, but nothing is really on either. It is sort a standard light brew overall.

Poured from a 12 oz. can. Has a pale yellow color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell has some light hints of corn, but is odorless for the most part. Taste has more flavor than I expected. Corn, grains, some malts, a bit of green apples. Feels light in the mouth and overall is a mediocre beer. Considering the brewery and the beer style, mediocre is pretty good in this case.

Appearance - Light yellow. Very clear and very bubbly. Short and very short-lived sudsy white head.

Smell - Light and very sweet pale malts. Corn and candy.

Taste - Sweet and corny, but obviously quite light. Light pale malts with no apparent hops character. Slight metallic tang and a little bit of a cloying aftertaste.

Mouthfeel - Light and crisp.

Overall - Pretty inoffensive and refreshing. Judging by some of Minhas' other efforts, this could be much worse. As is, it's a decent low priced stand in for the more flavorful of the macrolager lights.

Bought a case a few weeks ago. It was cheap and I didn't really want to spend too much on beer at the time. 10 dollars for a 30 pack, will do.

Not even going to pour this into a glass, it's not worth it.

Smell: Very fruity. That's about all I get. Fruitiness and maybe the slightest bit of a used up hop smell.

Taste: Well, it's light alright. Water, fruit, corn, and a ghosting of stale hops. Can't really expect too much from this.

Mouthfeel: Decently carbonated and very thin. Watery the whole way through. It goes down very easy to say the least.

Overall, it's not vomitrocious. It's not good either. I can't say I will be picking this one up again.

So it was $2.29 for a 6 pack. Decided to take a shot with the goading of my co-worker.

Pours super pale yellow, huge head that actually leaves a bit of lacing on the plastic hotel cup (I'm classy fuck you).

Smell is um..not pleasant. something offputting about it. Not beery at all.

Taste is, well I've had worse, tastes like a macro light, no worse than Bud light and a crap load cheaper.

Mouthfeel is water, strike that, it's carbonated water. Kinda like H2OH, if you've ever had that.

Drinkability. I've already 4 in, and have one more to finish, along with 2 more New Glarus, the fact that I can still type after 10 beers in the last hour says to me that it is pretty sessionable. Not that it tastes good, but at this point I'm really not getting the full flavor, and it hasn't made me puke yet, so bottoms up.

In short, cheap beer, not objectionable if you are just looking to get hammered in the cheapest way possible and you have something against malt liquor. But if you want beer, then don't buy this.

Bought a case of this (24pack) for 5 bucks... hard to beat that!

A- Pale yellow, a bit of fizzy head that immediately reduces to nothing.

S- Doesn't smell like much.. Maybe a bit of hops mixed with lots of water..

T- Tastes just like it smells... like water and bit of sweetness coming from something. The good news is it doesn't leave too much of an aftertaste.

M- The mouthfeel? Put water in your mouth and see for yourself.

D- This beer is pretty sessionable for me. While I dont think the taste is great, the lack of a bad aftertaste is a plus for me, and I have no problem throwing 10-15 of these back in a night. I can't say the same about some other macro brews.

If you are looking for the cheapest reasonable beer possible to get drunk, I'd recommend Minhas. It definitely isn't any worse than your typical Macro brews, but about a third of the price. If you are looking for good beer, avoid at all costs.
