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 almost even with Labatt Blue. It's worse. I re-reviewed this after a friend bought me a 30. The pinup series cans are very cool for starters but the beer wasn't too shabby. You just need to drink it quick. Once it hits a certain temperature it becomes undrinkable. I would get it again but overall it's not a bad beer but it certainly isn't good.

'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.
