Bottle. Funky, skunky, footy nose that reminds of runny hot dog water. Dusty and grainy. Sickly yellow body with an off-white head. Taste is nasty, grainy and unregulated mash with a bit of metal and plastic. Cereal and mineral water with a light body. Cardboard and corny sweetness. Man! Nasty.

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 15, 2008
12oz bottle. Smelled of corn syrup and mixed cereal grains. Poured a pale golden color. The head was fizzy, white, and reduced over a minute or so to a thin film. Light bodied and delicately sweet. Tasted distinctly of unsalted corn chips, especially toward the end. This might be better if you poured some salsa in it. Eh.

This is a very generic light beer with a slight sweet berry flavor to it. It is refreshing and goes down easy, but otherwise there is nothing special about it...very generic.

unclemattie (4165) - Georgia, USA - MAY 15, 2008
Tap. Pours a clear, golden yellow. Aroma is almost non-existant. Slight nose of corn. Somewhat flavorfull for a Light American Lager. Lots of corn. Flavor lasts a while on a clean palate. Better than expected.

Pours a light, almost clear golden. Aroma is non-existent. Tastes....hmm. Light a light beer. Not great, but Ive had a lot worse out there. Not really much distinction here though.

Cajun (197) - Lafayette, Louisiana, USA - MAR 30, 2008
Sample Tasting - Straw yellow color with white head. Not much aroma to speak of, but hints of citrus. Water, but flavors of pils grain, citrus, mild hops. Lawn mower beer.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 24, 2008
Aroma of sweet corn and rice. Very clear light golden pour. Taste is very light and tastes like a bud light with a little more sweetness. Nothing special at all. Not worth my time or buy.

amishcaravan (247) - Winona, Minnesota, USA - MAR 17, 2008
purchased in a sample pack. pours a very light yellow with little head. scent is of wheat and corn. taste is of almost nothing, but there are faint hints of corn, barley, and some hops. They dont lie - it is a very smooth beer, but why wouldnt it be? Its a light beer.

djd07 (3480) - Houston, Texas, USA - MAR 13, 2008
Bottle. Pours a clear golden color with a small white head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is was a corn malt and very metallic. The taste is as bad as the aroma. Total opposite of the commercial description.

The aroma is faint with some corn malt. The appearance is straw gold with a thin head. The flavor is like the aroma and metallic. The palate is surprisingly smooth for a light. As light beers go this is certainly drinkable but it hardly has much tastes save a slight metallic bitterness and corn. Must be the spring water!
