12-oz can at 47B with Andy and Streets. Pours straw with a whispy white head. Gets a point or two from me b/c there is a splotchy lacing on the glass. Aroma is kind of skunky but not bad. Does not taste as skunky as expected, and is actually kind of crisp, but thereís absolutely nothing to the palate. At least itís not foul, though.

Pours a clear yellow with a thin, white head. It has a clean aroma of fresh pilsner malt. The taste, likewise, is of clean pilsner malt. Itís not that flavourful, but itís a decent pale lager.

I donít really like lager so Iím not too shocked that I didnít like this one. To me it tasted like every other run of the mill lager Iíve ever had. It wasnít any worse but not really any better. Itís only $7.99 for a 12-pack so you canít really expect much more than what you get for this one. If you like cheap lager (like Budweiser, etc.) then youíll probably enjoy this.

as expected, too much corn and adjuncts. taste to strong on the malt front that will go skunky if not drunk cold and quick. the hops are barley noticeable. cheap and effective.
