2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured a dark copper with minimal head and lacing. Aroma was of sweet malts/grains with slight fruity hint. Taste was predominately a mix of malts with some other roasted grains in the background and a light hop finish. Mouth was average at best. Overall, fairly drinkable.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Can from Rothís Hayesville. Very deep amber in color, almost a ruby in color. Quite pretty. Nose is grainy with some wet cardboard. Flavor is bready malt and a little musty. Rather bland really. Not a horrible beer, just kind of bad.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted on 3/21/15 from a 25oz can purchased at the gas station. Pours a surprisingly dark amber with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is corny malt, a touch of nutty molasses darkness, some cereal, and just a touch of grass. The flavor is just a bit more nutty and dark than the nose with the same grass, corn, and cereal from the nose. The body is light with lively, fizzy carbonation, and a short, lightly nutty and grassy finish.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
16 oz can from a six pack purchased at a local convenience store for the princely sun of $5.99
Good copper colour with a small creamy off white head.
No aroma to speak off just the usual marco lager paper/cardboard hop.
Taste ..metallic but there are some malts in there and even the slightest bit of grassy hop.
MOuthfeel OK gets a wee sticky at th end.
OK warm weather refresher..a million times better than regular Busch.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Pours clean, copper with white head. Aroma is lager yeast, hay, a bit if toast. Taste is light bodied, crisp, thin, really not much flavor going on, kinda like drinking a highly watered down beer. Overall, not too impressed.

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is a really pretty beer with a dark brown appearance and very little tannish head. A mediocre taste that goes down easy if a tad bit warmer; this is not an ice cold beer. High marks appearance, neutral aroma, low taste(not horrible and not great, easily drank though). Locally Iíve only seen these in 6-packs in pint cans, at 3.50 the price canít be beat, 65% of the cost of domestic light 30-packs with a huge jump in ABV. Definitely a value beer hence the high overall score, will buy again as my daily run-of-the-mill beer many more times Iím sure!

For $4.50/6 16oz and 5.7% alcohol content, hands down my favorite supermarket beer. More taste and color than the typical cheapies. I love a lot of beers, but in "itís" category, itís way tastier than anything Bud, smoother and more delicious than Icehouse, even though I like Icehouse a lot. Itís just reliable for the things Iím looking for in a basic, daily- type, massively inexpensive brew.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 12/20
Itís cheap....My first look after pouriing, I think wow, I may be in for a treat. Noooo, donít think I should go quite that far....Aroma is okay. Smells like it could be great. Caramel, other sweetness, it smells pretty good.....It appears to be dark amber, itís pretty actually. Looks good, I expect a lot out of it....It doesnít live up to expectations. A beer this color should be more bitter, more bold, more something. Itísí okay. Itís lacking in flavor, but still better than a lot of beers....Itís not very pleasing on the palate. Itís smooth, but thatís about all. There is no depth, no nothing really. As far as palate goes, itís not much different than a light beer.....I expected more, but my rating is still pretty high. Itís cheap, and it tastes okay. Iíll probably have it again, and again, because of the price.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear light brown with a light tan head. Aroma is of crystal malts. Flavour is a little watery and dry. Body is quite thin, but not refreshingly so. Finish has some hop character and bitterness. The aroma and colour imply a much heavier and possibly slightly sweet finish, but it is not so. It just doesn't match up.
