The beer is what you expect. Had it from a bottle in a honky tonk name the Western Club trying out my new two steppin’ skills.

Smell and taste of corn, watery. However, I had a great time while drinking it. Hence the high overall score. You got to give some points for ambiance!

i cant believe i have never reviewed this beer, i feel like i have consumed plenty of it over the years. it truly is one of the worst beers in the game, even in the macro adjunct lager game, there are very few beers out there i would choose this over, but folks in texas sure seem to like it, its all over the place! another pale yellow fizzy brew that cant hold a head but has nice clarity and carbonation visible. it has a very metallic adjunct sort of aroma and flavor, tin and copper and even plastic to me, definitely some corn in this, as its got that thin sweetness in the middle, but i get no lager yeast or hops at all here, so there really isnt much depth or character, and it seems so cheap and metallic to me, i just cant get into it. when its ice cold and i pound it i can get through it, but this warms up with the worst of them, sharp and just totally artificial to me, less refreshing than it should be and really watered down in feel despite nice high carbonation. it6s just a beer, but its near the bottom of this class for me...

Drank from a 12 ounce bottle. Scores are based on the style.

Look - Standard boring brown bottle with some simple labels. It's simplicity speaks to me and looks pretty alright.

Smell - Very corny. Like incredibly strong corn smell. Like cracking into a can of Del Monte corn.

Taste - Really sweet, which isn't surprising from the intense corn smell. The slightest bit of a sour tinge on the end. Flavor comes and goes pretty quickly.

Feel - A medium body with an appropriate amount of carbonation.

Overall - An unexciting beer that I probably won't go for again. Fun to take to a party though, it really stands out visually from other macro brews.

12 oz can poured into pint glass (after half hour in the freezer)

L - Pours a clear, straw yellow with a finger of sudsy white head that dissipates quick and leaves a thin lacing. Lots of bubbles throughout. Comparable to a Miller Lite or, fittingly, PBR.

S - Metallic, grass, cereal grain, corn, typical macro smell, slightly skunky but not terribly offensive.

T - Surprisingly more taste than most other macros. Strong taste of sweet corn up front, grass, citrus, slightly peppery, barley malt, a little astringent alcoholic bite.

F - Light, thin, crisp, very drinkable with lots of carbonation. I can see this being a go-to poolside/BBQ beer somewhere like Texas.

O - Probably a beer best drank ice cold straight out the can. Not the best, not the worst, but it has some character that makes it better than a Bud or Coors Light. Very crisp and drinkable, would pick up again if I spot it.

Faint cooked hop scent and amber color. The flavor is of sweet grain with a touch of bitter hops. Really not much to it. A medium carbination and thin body. Your typical American macro brew.

Texan here. I used to get this stuff back when they did dollar beers at my local Cefco. I miss that tbh.

Compared to most American lagers, it definitely tastes darker, bolder, and heavier, but generally speaking it's nothing special despite having nothing inherently wrong with it. Try Tarantula Hawk if you want a real taste of Texas.

On tap at La Kiva Restaurant and Bar in Terlingua, TX.

This one pours a very light straw yellow, with a small head and lots of lacing.

This smells like absolutely nothing. Maybe some corn but this smells like lightly corn-themed water.

The taste is crisp, and there’s some corn and grass, but there’s basically nothing here.

This is crisp and fairly clean, so at least it has that going for it.

This is your typical shitty regional lager.
