Musty barley odor. Clear yellow with 1 inch head, dissipates moderately. Corn, barely and hint of sweetness. Would not buy again. Stereotypical comment: you get what you pay for.

The beer comes in a light crystal clear golden color.

There is not much of an aroma, which is good to avoid offensive adjunct lager qualities. Sweet grain, corn, and musty hops.

The flavor is sweet corn, grainy cereal malt. The beer has a decent bready malt backbone that makes it arguably more significant of a brew than Bud, Miller, Coors.

Even for a cheap dive-bar beer, you can do better.

If you are a poor alcoholic then this is the beer for you. Between the affordable price, the decent alcohol content and the lack of flavor you can drink a lot of these with relative ease.
