One and half fingers of head, clear yellow tinged colored body. Smell of candy corn. Not too bad of a taste. The mildest bitterness, corn and mild honey. Smooth texture, low carbonation for the style and light body. For the style it’s not a bad beer. I’d entertain drinking this if I had something productive to do on a summer afternoon. Descent flavor and low ABV.

24 oz can @ Party Town / Florence KY --- "Classic look" white can with red label - nice. Clear light amber color, 3" white head that drops slowly to a full cover, hanging strands of lace. Taste is Sweet malt and (probably) corn that moves effortlessly through medium fizz to light bittering that shares the finish with the grain. Not a lot, but one of the better old regional brews.

Raistlin (295) - London, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 31, 2016
Pours dirty yellow with no head to speak of at all. Very watery. Sweet taste and skanky after taste. Leaves bad taste in your mouth that lingers. Not very pleasant. Body is pretty thin with no texture worth mentioning. Not a great beer on any account.

Turboninja (493) - Tampere, FINLAND - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle@ABC Tavern, Cleveland, USA. Light aroma of malts. Dirty yellow color with medium white head and clear liquid. Light sweet taste with malts. Light body with medium carbonation. Overall, low-quality bulk product.

ajnepple (5084) - Denver, Colorado, USA - FEB 14, 2016
12 oz via can at the 1-up on Colfax. Bland aroma of light corn and toasted grain. Similar flavor, adding a hint of lemon and light sugary sweetness. Meh, light bodied and somewhat drinkable overall.

Bricks (976) - Delaware, USA - AUG 24, 2015
Fairly decent head... light tan/yellow clear appearance. Smell is metallic, with a touch of actual beer smell. Not much different than the Genesee Cream Ale overall, a bit less creamy, a bit more pissy. Definitely drinkable.
