473ml can, a surprisingly even twoonie at a local likka mart. Disconcerting how a company ran by people of South Asian extraction insist on using crappy white people tropes in their low-brow advertising. Oh, right, because it fucking works (hangs head in shame).

This beer pours a hazy medium golden straw colour, with three fingers of puffy, bulbous eggshell white head, which leaves some decent cobwebbed lace around the glass as it lazily recedes. Huh.

It smells of pale cereal grains, melted plastic, corn sugar, and grassy (of the dead, rotting sort) hops. The taste is sickly sweet, grainy corn mash, like bastardized Corn Flakes, some rather overripe citrus fruitiness, and weedy, floral (those weirdly unpleasant, musty kind) hops.

The bubbles are pretty innocuous, the body a bolstered medium weight, as the corn sugar is well known for such effects, and equally smooth, in a not so small vein straight from brewing and marketing hell. It finishes sweet, weirdly heavy on the booze perception side of things, the cheap-ass malt and hops still lingering, but in a thankfully (I think?) manner.

Gah. Another bottom-shelf malt liquor masquerading as something it is not. Blond ale? Really? Even I am not generally fond of that style, but since it doesn't say 'ale' anywhere on the can, I'm not going to dumb down or muddle the classification any further. As the ABV is generally too low for you know what, well, I cast thee off to AAL purgatory.

473 ml can, another one I am buy to add the can to my collection (and a couple others' who have been asking) not the contents.
This beer is hazy yellow color, with tall head of big bubbles. Foam fades to nothing, hardly a drop of lace left over.
It smells of wet grass, sweet cooked corn.
The taste is overly sweet, grainy. Sour undiscernible fruit, musty earthy (dirt) hops.
Body itself is medium, sweet and sticky mouth feel.
I am following the rules of Woody's CANquest that the entire can must be consumed to be counted.
At least there is a pretty girl on the label.
