Pours a suprisingly dark yellow. Goes downhill from there. Tastes like stale garbaje. Corn. Metal. Cardboard? Alcohol. Found myself contemplating pouring half out, but manned up and finished this abomination.

Can from Baeza’s, Fort Davis, Texas

What can I say? I had spent the day perusing Fort Davis NHS, the wind was fierce, the sun piercing, and the air dry. Perhaps these factors explain why the hell I plunked down $1.18 (with tax) for a 24 oz. can of this stuff. -sigh-

Pours bubbly and dark corn yellow with an aroma of weak rice with sugar sprinkled on it. Taste is sour copper with hints of corn flakes and barley. Palate is water, alcohol is not noticeable. Intended, I’m sure, so dumbasses can get plowed without puckering their lips and squinting with pain after every attrocious sip. I have a sudden urge to challenge a midget to a fight. Weird.

Avoid like herpes.

I give it an overall of ’2’ only because a) the checkout lady at the store, though obviously underage, was kinda hot, and b) I bought it in Fort Davis.

When I came to, it had rolled over and forgotten me. Not quite a Cockney Rod Laver, but close. Seems to posess none of the good qualities commonly associated with beer. Instead of a buzz, I got a "high blood pressure" flushing in the face. Did nothing whatsoever for my sinuses.

Dear God, what is this stuff? A "high gravity lager"?? It has a little alcohol kick hence the .6 rather than a .5. Tastes like a bud with a shot of rubbing alcohol. Blah.

If you’re low on cash, and want to tie one on, HHG is ideal. A 24oz can costs less than a 20oz Pepsi, and the ABV percentage will definately have you inebriated by the fourth one. The downside is that compared to Sam Adams, Gritty McDuff, and other high-end brews out there, you’re sacrificing flavor, drinkability, enjoyment, and possibly your dignity by getiing drunk on it. Slightly better than Steel Reserve, My recommendation is: Drink this only if the beer budget is tight, otherwise have one or two for a primer, then move on to a more palatable brew (and after HHG, most beers will taste much better by comparison)

Plenty of bang for your buck, but that’s pretty much all it has going for it.

kidmartinek (3539) - austin, Texas, USA - APR 10, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 25, 2009 Pours pale yellow with a ton of artificial carbonation foam head. Smells like old bland leftover disgusting corn mash and corn syrup. Nauseating as soon as it hits the stomach. Tastes like corn malt leftovers (shavings that horses have peed in) and dirt? trash? Why? Why does AB do things like this? They couldn’t possibly be making any money off of it. The store shelves are chocked full of this saleable beer canned by-product. Finish is like alcohol. One of the 5 "beers" I’ve poured out.

Can. Pours...I donno, I chugged it out of the can. Aroma is terrible. Corn syrup with alcohol. So bad. With this rating I’ve finally passed toadman. He’s been rocked like a hurricane.

This fine American lager has a pungent aroma of cafeteria catsup (ketchup). It appears eerily similar to wild Irish Rose. Appearance is average. The flavor is simply awful. Sugary, you can almost feel the hangover instantaneously. Palate? Let’s just say vomit inducing. Overall a fine gastronomic experience.

Truly nasty stuff. I guess a crack smoother and therefore preferable to Steel Reserve. Only buy it if you need 8% alcohol to feel buzzed.
