Poured into pint glass from a 12 oz can. Part of 12 pack. L: copious white head. Fades slowly. Limited lacing. Nice effervescent. S: Ricey, weak. T: watery, slight yeast. F: does not linger in the mouth. Needs another gulp quickly. O: here's were this beer shines. It is so cheap.

I'm very surprised that this is rated higher than Busch and almost even with Labatt Blue. Of all these cheap, macro beers, this is the worst. Undrinkable. Tastes like garbage. Literally, like a skunked, metallic, just awful. It's one of the beers that I find undrinkable.

'enjoyed' at a BBQ from the bottle. pulled out of a ice water cooler.

it's very cold.

smells of corn, and an arena restroom.

taste is what you would expect. watery, wet grass, corn.
