2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
From notes. First reviewed 8/8/2010. Poured from a 24 oz. can into a pint glass.
This has the look of a typical adjunct lager - light golden yellow, white foamy head, brisk carbonation.
Cooked corn and steamed vegetables provide the aromatics.
In the taste there is , again, nothing incredibly surprising. Starts off an overly processed kind of sweet, with mechanical corn sugar driving the flavor. Industrial bitterness steps in next, finishing with a dry sweet residue on the palette.
Light and crisp, but the grainy metallic feel really drops the enjoyment factor.
I loved getting this as a gag extra. If this is a Cincinnati favorite, I am in no hurry to see what else they drink over there.

Not bad for an american style light lager. Has more flavor than the big guys, but less expensive. It seems like they use more corn and barley than the macros do (less rice?).

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Poured out of a nice retro looking can into a pint glass.
Appearance is a clear light gold with a fizzy one finger head that quickly fades into nothing. A bit darker than many light beers.
Smell is of light grain along with a grape/lemony aroma. Not extremely appetizing but not terrible.
Taste is fairly sweet with corn and light grain being predominant. There is no hop presence to speak of. Mouthfeel is pretty thin but not as bad as some other light beers.
Overall this is one of the better light beers I have had. While it is a little too sweet for me to drink a ton of, on a hot day it would definitely be a go-to beer.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the Brew House in Cincinnati for $2. Had the "Big Jack" burger with this, and I highly recommend it. The beer had a perfectly clear pale yellow color. Nice, thin white head, with good lace. Light lemon aroma; some white bread. Mild sweet notes, and less sour. Very good and refreshing, supremely drinkable.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2011 Can: this is a light yellow beer, with little to no head. Itís sweet, with corn aromas and flavors. Itís a refreshing summer beer, it quenched my thirst... Thatís about all it did.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Aroma is the classic "I almost smell beer" light beer aroma, light metallic note. Flavor is super thin, like beer flavored spring water, but pretty inoffensive. Not a bad light beer - Iíd take this over any of the big 3 light beers any day.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
I went into this one expecting nothing and leave it knowing that its better than some. As far as cheap beer goes, this is great. Pale in color, light in taste. The taste I think I encounter is green koolaid. This one is fine by me.

Itís not offensive like some light lagers, but itís not that good either. Very yellow, no extremely bad aftertaste.

Had this in a can at a bar in Chicago. Poured rather yellow. This is a macro-style lager: some bitterness, super easy to drink. Itís like a PBR in many respects. Even though it doesnít have much to do with the beer itself, the logo on the can is awesomely retro. This is a tailgating beer, or a beer at a party. Itís not that bad, but not really great. Has that old school feeling from taste to appearance.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a clear pale golden with a respectable white head that coats the glass. Aroma is boiled corn and hops. Taste is sweet malt and corn grits, but it is clean and refreshing. Pretty damn good for a standard American light beer.
