COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Flavor of a fine ale and the smoothness of a premium lager.

Zymurgeist2 (961) - Redwood City, California, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Out of a bottle. Grainy corn and slight spice aroma. Clear light gold with a full white head. Head lingers. Taste is grain and corn. Slight spice and a slightly bitter finish. This was better than expected and not too bad for style.

ajnepple (1999) - Clear Creek, Colorado, USA - JAN 2, 2014
12 oz from the bottle yesterday. Smooth, light-bodied, easy to drink lager. Crisp, clean and pretty smooth. Not bad. First cream ale rating.

This is beer for the lowest common denominator. If you drink it ice cold, it’s not terrible. The light body will present thin flavors of corn, cereal, and malt sugar. Any tasting beyond that temperature won’t be very enjoyable. In fact, the malt and cream tastes will clash with one another and the result will be, for lack of a better word, gross. This beer has become a classic in the same way that some Z-grade films become cult classics. It’s another reminder that not all good things are classics and not all classics are good.

Huhzubendah (2431) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 5, 2013
Can gifted by Adam. Thanks man. The beer is crystal clear and pale golden with an inch of pure white head. Some sticky lacing left behind. The aroma is pretty mild, with some corn and grain notes. The tasters certainly a step up from the aroma. Smooth on the palate. Grain, cereal, md sweetness. For what it is, it’s pretty easy to drink.

Metalchopz (2213) - Cantley, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 1, 2013
Big can for super cheap at Albertsons in Vegas. Pours a very light golden colour with a creamy white head and some decent dirty lace. Sweet malt aromas with mild adjuncts. Same for taste. Not really good, but I have had worst. Not much creamy except the head.

Dacrza (494) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - NOV 27, 2013
DATE TASTED: November 24, 2013... GLASSWARE: Hobgoblin stick... OCCASION: sending off the Browns’ playoff chances... APPEARANCE: crystal clear golden body with subtle, steady carbonation; two-finger white head is rocky and soapy; appropriate... AROMA: metallic/aluminum ping up front; thick bread dough follows; otherwise, nondescript... PALATE: easily drinkable; fizzy art the finish; not as creamy as one would wish--or I remembered--but pleasant enough to be consumed in mass quantities...TASTE: subtle beech wood backbone sets up a bready consistency--some floral notes on the exhale engages the tastebuds...OVERALL: revisiting an old favorite--one that fetched thirty-six (!) cans in college for $10, plus a five-dollar mail-in rebate! All things considered, not a bad beer to slam or pong with, play cards or case race with...as a stand-alone, not quite the character or quality necessary to catch attention...still, nostalgia is strong...

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - NOV 22, 2013
12oz can (courtesy of Headbanger) poured into a Shaker at 47°. Color is a nice gold with light carbonation and a thin fizzy white head. Aroma is a faint malt and grain scent. It has a lighter medium body with a creamy mouth feel. Flavor is mellow with a bit of grain coming across slightly sweet then a very faint bitterness balancing it out. Overall it’s ok and the creamy feel lives up to its name.

Surprisingly not bad. No aroma. Somewhat metallic slimy palate but much better than keystone or something equivalent.Comments

SpongeRuiner (676) - Michigan, USA - OCT 8, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 27, 2013 Had a 12 pack of tall boys for $8.00. One of the best deals out there I’m sure if you want a quick cheap drink. It wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be.
