Man, what a beer. It was a really good time during that short period of time that I could get it.
I drank a twelver of it and then couldn’t get it anymore.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
355mL can. The can alone makes me laugh--it looks like it’s for kids. Anywho, pours a clear amber with a moderate, quickly diminishing head. Aroma of some corn and sweet caramel malts. Taste follows aroma pretty well. Ultimately, I was pleasantly surprised b this--not by a lot though.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours an orange copper, with a fast fading white head. Aroma of dusty malt and light sweetness. Flavor is similiar, with a markedly surprising sweetness and caramel quality, for the style at least. Palate is watery, but drinkable. As I commented to the purveyor, for a Pale Lager in a can from Wisconsin, it’s not bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
A relativley dark orange body that approaches copper. This looks like a bock. The aroma is rich carrots and some fresh green beans. There is a hint of corn. Not a bad aroma. The taste has some light oats with a little bit of sharp celery in the finish. Relatively dry. This one of the best I have had in the style.

I have to admit, marketing got me again. The orage case and can drew me in, that and that cat looks like the one i have. Its a super cheap brew, about 5 bucks for a 12 of it. The taste wasnt to great, but isnt really terrible. obvisouly, it got better the farther into the 12 i ventured, with lovley results!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I do love the retro-design on the label of this thing, the classic-ly styled cartoon cat, complete with cigar...and yet I could tell it wasn’t the sort of thing I wanted to spend my own money on. Luckily, a friend was so kind as to provide a can, and away we go...
Clear, pure yellow, huge head, a fluffy white pillow
Nose is typical, average lager-y smell, a little lemon-y, grainy, hints of corn...but sweet malt stands tallest in this saddle, when all is said and done.
Taste: not much. Mostly watery, thin bodied, with little finish. Flat and uncluttered by any flavor. Well, that’s on first sip, let’s give it another chance...
...light sweet malt presence, but little else. Wetness is all it can boast of, sorry to say. This won’t scare away fans of other flat, boring beers, but those who yearn for more, don’t bother.
I still like the can design, although it’d be nice if they had a good beer inside.

Amber color. Slightly fruity aroma. A little malt base with a dry and bitter finish. Eh, it could certainly be worse.

Orange Coloring with Good White Head. Sweet Malt and Hops Aroma...Carrying onto the Tongue as Well. If You’re Drinking Session Quality Ales, This Won’t Be the Worst One of The Night.

1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Ammonia aroma, aluminum palate, and sour finish. Not a tasty beer, but it certainly is cheap at under six bucks for a twelve pack. Good perhaps for drinking multiples cold on a hot summer day, but not a great one-with-dinner beer.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours quite a bit darker than your average pale lager. Amber in color. Aroma is fairly malty. Flavor is malty and a little fruity. Tastes alot like a light marzen. Not bad.
