Backlog. College chugging beer. Goes down easy but has a weird aftertaste. Not nice. Avoid.

As a cheap beer, Id say go for it. When I want a cold beer but Im strapped for cash, Ill pick a 40oz of this up and relax. Typically I drink IPAs and Stouts, but on occasion I have to go back to my white trash roots. It goes down easy, doesnt make the mouth taste horrible, and at 5.5% Alc, it does the job if you just want to relax before bed or after work. Where I live it is only $2.49 for a 40oz, so its cheaper than water.

Originally rated on 6/25/08.Another beer for high schoolers and college kids, ah i can remember this from back then. Not good beer -no flavor, smells bad and leaves an unpleasant aftertaste. Avoid this and most other A.B. products

24 oz.. can pours a clear pale golden color with small vanishing white head and no lacing. Smells of straw, corn, and cardboard. Aroma is pretty much the same, with very little flavor. At least its not as offensive as Natural Ice. Taste is bland, with a little bitterness in the finish. I expected to hate this one, and much to my surprise, could tolerate it. It serves a purpose for lots of folks, but not mine.

Big ass 25oz can from the gas station after work. In a big fuckin rainstorm. You either know what youre getting when you buy this, or you dont complain about it to the other beer geeks when you decide it sucks because its not Gumballhead... or Pliny... or whatever the fuck youd rather be rating. It is what it is, and after working behind a bar all day, listening to idiots talk about bullshit, this can and some peace and quiet are the best things Ive had all day.
