Just another truly awful bland lager. You cant find it anywhere in Australia, I guess its just contract brewed everywhere ... the recipe is probably pretty simple. The bigs cans you can get in the US are hilarious though, thumbs up for that, makes me remember the Simpsons. Perhaps its best drunk over a game of knifey spooney !!

Goes down easy like all lagers but has a bit of a burnt corn aftertaste..

Pretty sweet and not a lot of flavor other than the lingering burnt corn .

Another one of those beers that used to be an import. Now they use the original recipe but brew it in another country from where it was born . It is not all that bad though.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 1.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 2

Look - Clear yellow in color, quickly vanishing thin white head, no lacing.

Smell - Sweet corn syrup, grain, metallic

Taste - Thin malt body, very odd and off-putting sweetness, almost an overly ripe/rotten white grape flavor, finishes with the lingering sweetness

Feel - Light body, sufficient carbonation, could be more crisp

Overall - No idea what's going on here. I bought a can so I know it couldn't be skunked. The borderline offensive sweetness makes this unenjoyable.
