No formal ASTMO review for this garbage...

No head retention, dull medium yellow. Smells like a Minhas product (that weird vegetal, metallic spicy hot mess). Tastes like a mix of seltzer, bad malt liquor and an average hefeweizen. It has a weird, unexpected spicyness that redeems it a bit. Has some mouthfeel issues (watery and astringent) Overall, why bother?

The positive ratings (>3.0) are all shills with no cred on BA.

Okay this might not be your cup of beer but this beer has a great drink abilitie! It's not overbearing and searved ice cold is easy to drink! If you're a beer snob move on, this isn't your beer, but if you like a good drinking beer for those hot days after yard work look no further! This is it!
So for the beer advocate folks here it is! Color, looks like beer, smells like beer, taste like beer.
Must be beer!
I like it!

It's not a "great beer".
It's a wonderful, everyday sort of beer- incredibly cheap, low in gluten(get the light version!), and- unlike the Boxer brand, does Not taste Skunky!!

But, at around 9.00 for 30 beers-

HOORAY! Very Regal indeed!!

L: Pale amber color, darker than most AALs though. Very short lived crackling head.

S: Corn and a weird sweetness that seems to get worse every time I take a drink.

T: Much like the nose. Sweet malt flavor. Basically tastes like malt liquor.

F: Thin bodied and light carbonation.

O: A little different than your run of the mill BMC, but not necessarily better, although I prefer this to BMC actually, as it has a little more body to it. At the end of the day its still basically an AAL though. Might be better out of can because I wouldn't have to smell whatever that funky sweet smell is.

From can to lager glass.
Clear golden with fizzy white head, low retention.
Smell - very sweet, like russian beverage Buratino, corn.
Taste - weak, watery, sweet grain.
Light body and carbonation. Poor.

The in law bought a 6 pack for fishing. At $5.98 for a 6 pack, he couldn't turn it down. I wish he would have spent the extra cash for Coors. Tasted like watery malt liquor, especially when it got hot. Funny thing is, I fully expect to a case in his fridge very soon.

I was amazed. I went to pick up some beer for super bowl at Kwick Trip. While looking through the usual suspects I spotted a 30pack for $10. It was an offer I could not refused.

I walked it home and finished my stuff. When I cracked one open and tasted it. I was presently surprised. It was tasty and full bodied. So I looked it up on the Weber. I punched a few listings for old cans and bottles.

When I landed here and saw it was brewed by Mihas. I was pleasantly surprised. Mihas always puts out good beer.

I am enjoying a can now with cheese, sausage, and crackers.

It is good stuff. I am going to stock up before the zombies begin their attacks.

355ml bottle, at the Pizza Brew in Calgary.

This beer pours a slightly hazy medium golden yellow colour, with one finger of rather loosely foamy, bubbly dirty white head, which leaves some stringy lace around the glass as it quickly abates.

It smells of stale grainy pale malt, corn husks, musty yeast, and an unpleasant vegetal astringency. The taste is more of the same - a suggestion of actual barley malt, but one duly stamped down by the overwhelming corn pithiness employed to flesh out this offering, a mild abstract toastiness, and a late arriving mineral water character.

The carbonation is pretty sedate, the body medium-light in weight, and mostly smooth, a mild tackiness emerging once I actually started paying attention. It finishes on the dry side, still pithy and wan, the graininess cheap and unpleasant as ever was.

Pretty below average, even for the style denoted here, but ever more egregious in its overstatement on the label - "Bavarian Style Ale". Do the Germans know about this monstrosity? Woe on Minhas if those Reinheitsgebot-happy lawmakers get wind of this, eh?

Pours a slightly hazy gold with a giant ivory head that dissipates fairly quickly.

Adjuncts of corn and sugar accompany grain and mildly earthy hops to form the aroma.

Corn and sweet malt begin the flavor profile, becoming slightly harsh and grainy mid palate, finishing fairly bitter, minerally, and earthy. There's a vegetal character that is offputting.

Body is moderate, with carbonation on the high side, and an astringent finish.

Seems very adjunct-laden. There's a tinny, minerally quality that is offputting, as well. Too sweet and corny.

I'm not so sure this is retired. It comes in an ominous old school looking case pack.

12 oz brown twist-off bottle.

It pours a dull gold with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates. Even for style standards this one looks pretty bad.

It actually has a grainy smell with real barley, though there is a certain must that reminds me of corn.

The taste is odd, it has a nice malt and hop presence for the style, but also the taste of cardboard and a bit of corn. It seems like they were going for an adjunct lager that was as high-quality as possible.

Not very good, but not bad considering the style.

There is nothing regal about this beer. Light amber in color, not much head, low carbonation, and a grain smell. The taste is a little malty with a low hop finish. The label says "private stock" and the usual junk about choicest grains and imported hops. I don't see much difference between this and a Bud. A future purchase is unlikely.
