Small beer in a tall can.

Years ago this brand was a cut above average. Alas, it's light has dimmed. Not the worst AAL out there, just no longer the stand out it was 40 years ago when it placed first in a blind tasting I hosted. Light color, light tasting, fizzy basic beer that will get the job done when there's nothing better around.

Buy it if you're ticking through the AALs, otherwise leave it on the shelf as there are better ones in the price range.

Real beery taste that keeps you coming back for more. I haven't run the numbers but great value beer. Much better than the others in its class on the far end of the beer case. Will not disappoint even the snobbiest of beer snobs. More than just a palate cleanser. Serve straight up and unfruited. A well stocked beer fridge should always have some on hand. No nonsense man beer.

Pours like water with the color of urine. Careful with the pour or you will get a very fluffy white head that lingers for an eternity. The smell is reminiscent of the frat house floor the morning after an all night bender, and the taste is of corn and socks. Yes It really is that awful.

There are drinkable college budget beers, but this is not one of them. Look to Yuengling or PBR.

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.
