12 oz bottle pour golden with a white head. And that is basically all I can say about this on.

Pours a golden color. Medium thick head, of which a thin amount of head lingers. Thereís some lacing.

Aroma is hard to pinpoint. I guess itís grassy and roasted malt.

Taste however is pretty good. Itís got some alcohol flavor. Thereís some hops in there. Iím not what all Iím tasting, but itís pretty good.

Mouthfeel is very smooth, and clean. I think itís a little heavy. A little too dry for my liking.

Overall, itís good. Iíve had it before, and itís better than I remember. Ice beers have higher alcohol so that seems to be a positive for this one.

tfontana (49) - Fremont, New Hampshire, USA - APR 5, 2015
UPDATED: APR 18, 2015 24 oz can. Aroma is champagne-like while head lasts but then morphs to smell of stale beer. Appearance is clear, pale yellow with 3-finger white foamy crackling head that dissipates quickly with negligible lacing. Taste is pretty absent up front with lasting light malty finish. Palate is very light bodied with thin mouth feel and strong carbonation dominates, which also diminishes whatever taste there is. Overall, as noted elsewhere, the biggest thing going for this beer is its extremely low price ($.99). Between the carbonation and a low temperature, you can pretty much get rid of the taste and have a quick buzz with the 5.5% ABV. Not objectionable and highly drinkable on a really hot day. Preferable at a bar-b-que to Bud, Miller, etc.

The main thing going for it is price...itís cheap. Consume it as cold as possible...freeze your taste buds.

Brandon1989 (401) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Pours a straw yellow that is clear and has a medium white head. This beer is heavily carbonated. The aroma is not that great, dirty grass, corn, dirty water. The taste has a slight hop bitterness up front, watery, corn, and not as sweet as BMC.

MacBoost (1446) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2014
6 pack of 16oz tall boys from Wegmans. Pours a clear gold with a metallic aroma. Taste is sharp and chemical laden. Not clean at all. Dirty tasting. Pretty poor, even by pale lager standards.

dekester1 (336) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Poured a slightly dark gold with a moderate head and lacing. Aroma of malts and grains. Taste is of malts, grain and an off moderate hop finish. My initial thought was that it tasted similar to Red Dog. Palate was decent. Overall, an alright iced pale lager.

wedgie9 (2501) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - OCT 12, 2014
Tasted on 10/11/14 from a 25oz can purchased at a gas station. Pours clear golden with an average white head that slowly recedes to average lace. The nose is sweet and corny with a bit more grassy green hops than most beers of this ilk. The flavor is pretty crisp, with the same grassy hops, and a bit of sweet corny malt. The body is light with lively, fizzy carbonation, and a short corny and lightly grassy finish.
