It comes in a really cool 25.4 oz. can. The original oil can. If you do not worry about the pour or the smell it will be all right. Drink out of the glorious can really chilled. Slightly bitter on the first sip, taste the corn and perhaps some malt. Finish with a little bit of sweetness. You can do a whole lot worse. I always have can of Fosters put away for the right time.

Shared 750ml can. Clear straw with a short-lived white head. Aroma and taste of light malt, apple, grass, mild hops, corn. A little sweet. Extraordinarily bland.

darbeer75 (559) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Aroma: typical lager cereal; Apperance: crystal clear golden straw with no head; Taste: sweet and watery with a little cereal underneath; Palate: very light body; Overall: even 1/2 a can is too much.

Demens (262) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 2, 2016
0,5l can. Clear pale yellow colour with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma: Corny, boozey, a bit skunky. Taste: Watery light sweet start, with no bitterness at all. Corny taste. Not good. Light body with fizzy carbonation. Short sour finish. Quite bad pale lager.

UXO (1524) - CANADA - SEP 19, 2016
Appearance: clear pale gold with one finger of loose white head diminishing rapidly to a thin cap, patchy lacing. (3/5) Aroma: adjunct corn syrup, grass, light vegetal. (4/10) Taste: moderate-high sweet, low bitter. (3/10) Light body, lively carbonation, sweet medium duration finish. (2/5) Very much a SABMiller product. Any character this might once have had has been pretty firmly stamped out - if not by the SABMiller ownership, than by the fact that this is brewed in the US under license. Hey, I knew it was gonna be shit going in, so Iím not disappointed. I was thirsty, now Iím not, so thatís kind of a win, right? And letís be honest, the big-ass oilcan is fun. Cheap garbage, at a cheap price. (8/20)

I take this opportunity to reiterate my point from a previous rating of the premium ale in that If you are going to smash macro beer then there is no better than the oil can! The lager is a little more friendly being lighter bodied and slightly cleaner in taste.

Svesse (7932) - Hšsselby, SWEDEN - AUG 20, 2016
(Draught at Hotel Vivanta By Taj, Gurgaon, India, 5 August 2016) Pale golden colour with frothy, white head. Malty nose with bread, grain, hay and boiled vegetables. Malty, slightly fruity taste with notes of bread, grain, corn, grass and typical macro notes. Medium body, fairly dry. Bland and boring.

22 oz can. Pours pale straw with tall, long lasting, fluffy, white head and lively carbonation. Aroma is of sweet malt. Body is light and crisp. Taste is of something Iím not sure what. Finish is short, barely noticeable. Standard macro crap.
