Piss yellow, fizzy head, and a lively carbonation dont make for a particularly visually appealing brew, but damn does that can design look fantastic. The smell is vegetal -- particularly corn -- with sharp notes of compost pile and malt liquor. Taste is pretty standard AAL: heavy on the grain and corn with little hoppiness or maltiness. At least it feels refreshing.

Straight 3s for this beer. Its actually exceeding my expectations quite honestly. Goes down pretty smooth and would be enjoyable on a hot day for sure. Golden color with little to no head after a few seconds. Poured from the 25.4 oz can into a big mug, got this and a tall fosters pale ale for 4$, not bad.

I bought the 25 oz can for $2.50, thinking it'd likely be a good value. But boy, was I wrong. This is supposed to be beer, not water. Pure swill. The ABV is supposedly 5%, but seems more like 2-3%. There is barely any taste to speak of and what I was able to taste was a bit of malt. I took a few sips and poured the rest down the toilet. Perhaps I've been spoiled, since my introduction to beer was Sierra Nevada Torpedo, but this is the first brew I've never been able to finish.

A - Golden in color, thin head dissipates < 20 sec.
S - Sweet grains...corn and malt
T - Taste like is smells, a lower ABV malt liquor.
M - light to medium to mouthfeel, goes easy on the palate with a "drink more" appealing aftertaste
O - A good go to everyday beer for those who don't ride high horses.

It's really not as bad as some people would lead you to believe. It's just not that good either.

Had on tap at Outback Steakhouse, where else? It's clear and yellow, not much carbonation, smells like any AAL. Tastes like corn and a bit of hops, but not much. Feels light and sessionable, though I'm in no rush to have another anytime soon.

Overall it's fine. It's like PBR to me. I'm not gonna go out of my way to get this, but if it's around I might have one.
