Oh hamms hamms hamms... I used to buy you when you sold for $9 a case at the AM/PM... best damn beer value in the world... for a macro, you really weren't all that bad, but to be honest I've been into other stuff the last few years. It was fun and all... going to the lake and going fishing for a weekend with all my friends back then... we would bring along 8 or 10 cases of various "beer", and we never forgot you, dear polar-bear-who-lives-in-Wisconsin. I remember you when you were thin, had the radiance of a gold coin and pleased me more than the other at the time... but, now I try you and to be honest I think I've moved on, moved on to things you can't imagine. But don't be sad, for you have a purpose... you are the small little shining light of beerdom that many have yet to discover... you are the first babystep on the way to true, honest beerdom.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Can. Head is initially small, fizzy, white, fully diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (grain), with a light note of DMS. Flavor is lightly sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately bitter. Light body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Kudos for having some bitterness, but too bad it's not balanced with any malt.

As Wrath stated, "good very cold on a hot day". A bit more taste than your run of the mill American Standard, you could do worse.

Ah, but I like the look of a well-carbonated golden lager with steady, swirling bubbles throughout the course of the drink. But if I said I liked this beer, I could also claim to understand why a billygoat enjoys chewing on cans, because that’s pretty much what this tasted like. Along with some corn syrup.

Wisconsin is the land of clear blue waters? Hmm, news to me. The ol’ HGD just doesn’t do anything for me. Corny grainy flavor...wait, there’s flavor! Finishes a bit acidic and watery. Another pale lager brewed in the american tradition. $9.45 for a 24 pack though...

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Sampled from 12-oz aluminum can from oetiii. Pours a clear golden pale straw brew with a fast dissolving white head that dissipates clean. Aroma of corn grits, some citrus zest and light white bread malt. Taste is light bodied, well-carbonated with flavors of dry popcorn, some citrus zest, a touch of taco shells and some candy corn sugar. Finish is clean, crisp and slightly dry. Another average mass-produced macro light beer at best.

Oh yes. Canned. The body was pale yellow with a thin white head. The aroma was meaty with bologna and lots of grain. The taste was grainy bread with some iced tea. There was also some raw potatoes. Drinkable, but far from a pleasure.

1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Straw color with a fluffy off-white head. I’m catching quite a bit of DMS in this one, with light manure after milking scents. LIght corn and grass, with a touch of lime. Back to the farming days. Grainy and even some alcohol, which for the ABV is mildly disturbing. HInts of herbal hops in the finish. Some more grain, hint of malt and light acid in the linger, along with another bite of spice from the alcohol. I’m not finding much to enjoy in this one.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
In the can thanks to Hurrisnow. Pours a medium golden color (not pale) with a bright white head. My can exploded upon opening and gushed out. Bit of a soapy aroma. Flavors are an unfortunate detergent, metallic and finishing lemon sourness. None of these were likely intended by the brewer.

Pouring heavily down the center, this beer floats a mighty head, but it fades fast. Poor mouthfeel: light carbonation, no texture, very watery. Light malt flavors (there is malt in this beer, right?) are slightly sweet; a creamed corn type of sweetness. The only life in this beer attempts to surface in the finish, where the carbonation turns up a little and some bitterness comes out. Bitterness, corn and metal flavors linger.
