I drank this by accident one. The bartender gave me the wrong glass and I didn't bother to think before taking a big swig.

Hmm... what to think, what to think. Here is what I sense: ugly yellow beer with lots of carbonation, keeping a frothy white lacing for a long time. Rather plain aroma. Sweet flavor, lager-like with a hint of apple in the aftertaste. Nothing particularly offensive, but definitely just blah American Standard flavors. I paid $0.99 for this. [Brain processes the sensory input.] Bad beer that is cheap. Does that make it good value? No. It is still bad beer. If I had to choose among bad beers, however, I would be attracted to its sweetness.

This beer is one that helped me survive college. It is got more flavor to it than most of the other beers we consumed in school. Hops and some sweetness present, but still must be quite cold to avoid a bit in the finish.

"Aroma is not impressive. Appearance is like any other American Standard. Flavor is what makes it stand out somewhat from other cheap beers. Slight hint of hops with a whipped cream taste. Smooth and easy to drink." Ditto. There's too many good beers out there to waste my money on this one again.

Aroma is not impressive. Appearance is like any other American Standard. Flavor is what makes it stand out somewhat from other cheap beers. Slight hint of hops with a whipped cream taste. Smooth and easy to drink. This is a pretty decent mass produced beer.

Very high carbonation for a beer. It almost tasted like alcoholic ginger ale. My buddy and i would drink some down and wait for an aftertaste but there wasnt any. Not worth what we paid for it.

It could be a lot worse. Kind of sweet. I was surprised to find it in a bottle.

Sweeter and maltyer than most american standards. A slight hops nose but lacking hops in the flavor. My dad used to drink this stuff by the case, so I'd thought I'd give it a try. Could have been worse.

I'm from western NY, and it cracks me up that they distribute and market this as a premium beer. This was you $3 gas station six pack when I was growing up. I ogt some corn/DMS in the aroma, w/ some barely perceptible hops. Flavor has some malt, corn, and even balance but some sweetness in the finish. Medium-light body, high carbonation. Definitely better than an American light lager, but that's about it.

Not in the least bit complex, but is an easy drinking cheap beer with a pleasant sweetness to it. Almost no hop presence though.
