Dacrza (820) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - JAN 13, 2015
DATE TASTED: January 11, 2015... GLASSWARE: Ommegang pokal... OCCASION: cataloging my beers of the year--slow-motion spread sheet fun... APPEARANCE: glittering, shimmering golden body; snow white head that frizzles swiftly; sudsy inadequate residue... AROMA: toasty, oaty malts that pluck the nostrils; a secondary biscuit and sweet malts; slightly pungent finish... PALATE: oily, slightly effervescent; overall, a clean glass-emptying kind of lager ...TASTE: sweet, corny and grainy, with a malty base; not very balanced, with the ping that suggests a 40 oz.... OVERALL: when it was 36 cans for $10 (with a $5 mail-in rebate), it was a winner; now, its primary function is lining the top part of my beer fridge to keep its coldness; a mostly tolerable, predictable, unimpressive lager that only goes well after a few better beers have been consumed...

MacBoost (1737) - Penfield, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2014
"Genny Red Eye" itís called here. Another prototypical pale lager. Low boost. Has the genesee house character of heavy metallic notes and off tastes of metal and dirt. Horrific. Fizzy yellow pour, high carb, low body, low taste. Terrible.

rjplumer (974) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 4, 2014
Sweet corn aroma with a whisper of malt in the background. Clear pale yellow body with a frisky head that does linger for a while. Hard to grasp flavor cause it fades quick. I sense a trace of creamy malt with creamy but lively mouth feel. Leaves you with clean finish like it was hardly there to begin with. Need a cheap beer for chugging, frat parties, girl(or guy) dumped you or any other occasion taste is an after thought than this is the one. Not bad tasting just donít expect a lot.

"possibly nostalgia is causing me to rate this bottle of beer, but many were put down playing softball or baseball in upstate NY, and it wasnít too bad in the summer heat. not really a "good" beer, but i wasnít as much of a snob then as i am now."

odannyob (130) - Colorado, USA - JUL 26, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Poured a chilled 1 into a 12 oz. beer mug from a 355 ml can; color of a very light gold; minimal layer of head; sparse effervescence; kinda bland tasting, to me; overall, however, one of the liquor establishments i visit had a 30 pack that @ like forty 4 pennies a can; a solid, inexpensive new york state of mind brew. as an aside, Rochester had one of the most best jazz music stations that one could listen to during very late night (and thanks to AM skip) in mid-america, during that last century.

Eructoblaster (3758) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle - 355ml. Bland, pale blond body with heavy carbonation and an instantly fading white bubbly head. Weak malty/hoppy aroma with corny hints. Its thin taste carries some metallic and rotten grass notes. Finish is non-existent. Useless.

No aroma whatsoever! Kinda resembles a beer in appearance - has a soft white head that lasts for more than a minute. The taste isnít off putting but there just isnít anything going on. It almost has a beer feel on the palate. W/ all that being said, itís still a piss pour beer!

Bulk_Carrier (3557) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - MAY 31, 2014
Another after hockey beer. Reviewed from notes. With this one, Iíve mainly only ever had this out of the can, but there were a couple times I was inquisitive enough to sport several home to see what they looked like and that has always been a pint glass. The appearance was a clear yellow color with no head ever. A vast array of rapidly rising carbonated bubbles were seen rising. The smell was basically nothing. Iíve never gotten anything from this. The taste was metallic and somewhat corn sweet. Thereís a metallic aftertaste with no finish. The palate, it sat exceptionally light. Overall, well, I donít drink this anymore and Iíll leave it at that.

Poured from a can. Thin white head, with a clear golden appearance. Taste is clean and refreshing. Reminds me of an average lager.
