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

BA transfer - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance - A light straw color with a white head that faded faster then the pour. Smell - Not much odor at all. A little bit of malt, but other then that very little Taste - It actually had more flavor then expected. While not having a lot of hop flavor, could taste some decent maltiness and some giving way to a corn sorta sweetness in the end. Mouthfeel - A good level of carbonation for the style, but a little bit thin on the viscosity. Overall - Average for a standard american lager. At only ~$8 for a 12 pack it is worth the price. A good beer for tailgating and massive parties where you don’t know and don’t care to know most of the people there.

This one poured a straw yellow with white head. Aroma was of sweet corn and light metal. Flavor was more sweet corn, not off flavors really but not good.

24oz can from a 7-11 in Hamburg, NY. Pale straw with a ring of white head; grainy aroma; thin with a sweet body; and little in the way of hops. OK if cold and wet is enough for you.

Can (Old Notes)-Pours a clear golden with a decent head. Aroma of corn and grains. Taste is similar. This light bodied brew is just another pale lager.

Big fucken can @ home. Very pale yellow pour with a short lived white head. Light lemon peel aroma, maybe some grass and cracker malt. Really bland and watery otherwise. Tastes like it smells: bland. A touch of cracker and bready malt sweetness, lemon peel, and very light grass. No bitterness. Just slightly sweet malt/corn water.

Drake is right, slight ham water. Yellow pour white head that went away quickly. Some fruity malt and corn taste and kind of.like chewing on straw. High carbonation very thin body. Yum.

Mmm... an American classic. 24 ounce tallboy from Bruisin. Smells a bit like ham when I pour it. Pours a pale golden color with a large fizzy tan head. Poor head retention. Aroma of grain, a mild salty, hammy note and a weak attempt at hops. The taste is corn, grain, green apple. Thin, watery, high carbonation.

Pours beautifully. Straw colored golden with a fat white head that fell fast and left splotchy lacing. Brilliant clarity . You could read through it. Lots of bubbles streaming up to the top./ Nose is faint light grain and a touch of cooked corn. A bit of hop herbal and perfectly clean. No fruity esters whatsoever. Just lovely. Taste is crisp with some firm carbonation. Light sweet grain, cooked corn that is sweet and delicious. There is a touch of mineral or metallic on the palate but it’s from the water. This finishes dry and with a nice little bitter to tease you into more and more. Light smooth mouthfeel and you could drink this beer all day. Nothing wrong with it at all but it is thin and develops a watery quality as it warms. It also gains a bit of sour taste from the combined grains as it warms.

Stale cornflakes and sweat. It teeters on being boring and dull, but, it sure kills the time, lads! Jim Jefferies wrote this fuckin’ review while eating my fuckin’ stew that I made on my stove. I feel so accomplished.
