Poured a mid-amber with a decent head. Aroma was slightly sweet with malts predominating. Taste was primarily malty upfront with slight twinge of grains with a mild malt finish. Mouth was decent/acceptable. Overall, this brew was not as bad as I had anticipated being brewed by a macro-brewer (i.e. Miller).

Shared 750ml can. Pale amber, white head. Aroma and taste of malt, bread, and hints of apple. Watery and bland finish; lightly sour. Not pleasant.

Aroma: sour and bready; Appearance: clear amber pour with fluffy white head that dissipates quickly; Taste: follows nose with unpleasant, offtasting finish; Palate: light bodied; Overall: no need to ever drink again.

It’s one of my smash beers and always a challenge to chug one oil can. I love the old commercials from my childhood too but all that does not save it from being a low brow beer. It tastes better than most macros but has a bit of a harsh edge in the grain and just a subtle hop character. Maybe this is why so many people drink the blue can more.

This was quite a foul experience the second time around. Bready malts, almost no hop profile. Some kind of artificial flavor, almost akin to ’grape soda’, or stale perfume...will not drink it again.

Amber thin beer with not a lot going for it. Aroma is off putting, bitter watery taste lingers longer than you might prefer.

25-ounce can in a pint glass. Terrible, but better than Fosters’ lager. Barely.

Can shared at a tasting at the Dancing Camel. Thanks Excellent Little Brother! Clear dark gold with a white head - foamy. Mud, sewer, garbage water aroma, mussy, sewage and a little sweet taste. Light body, vegetal finish.

Block (2324) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - MAR 16, 2016
I didn’t have too high of expectations and it probably came in just a little below. Lots of grass and the alcohol seems to come through a little. It’s kind of bitter like a peel or a husk.

tightslice (1001) - Redwood City, California, USA - MAR 10, 2016
Thick boy can from Safeway in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is herbal lozenges and caramels. Taste is grandma-type candies. Sentimental but stale.

At atasting , thanks, small creamy head, clear light amber color, grainy aroma with a hints of hay and caramel, flavor of caramel, strange unpleasant sourness, light unpleasant bitterness. Yuck.
