Basically horrible. Very weak. Unpleasant odor. Extreme carbonation. Should have left this one in retirement.

Viper666 (2763) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2013
Bouteille en aluminium. De couleur dorée pâle et claire. Nez de grains de malt pâle avec des notes de caramel très doux, de miel, de maïs sucré et de houblon floral. Mince en bouche avec un pétillement moyen et une texture aqueuse. Léger goût de grains de malt pâle sucrés avec de faibles traces fruitées (citron) lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un léger goût de maïs sucré avec des traces de miel puis en finale se rajoute une très légère amertume de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses (foin) avec de faibles notes métalliques. Post-goût court, très légèrement amer de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses (notes de foin) avec quelques traces métalliques.

Normal beer, a little premium yes but still regular. Refreshing and a little bitter but just necessary.

Notes of cereal grain accompanied by faint cider vinegar aromas. Somewhat sweet certainly more so than most commercial pale lagers.

Clear bright copper with a fast disappearing head and no lace. There is quite a bit of rising bubble activity. This may not be much of a beer, but it deserves at least a little respect because it is a holdover from an early era. I’m sure it had a large, faithful following 50 years ago. Maybe a little malt in the taste, but mostly adjuncts followed by noticeable carbonation.

From BandC. Overly sweet. Malty for a pale lager. Odd twist at end of sip. Adjuncts aren’t overly prominent.. Serving: Bottle

The only people who buy this beer are poor college students looking to get drunk.

DialSquare (2657) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - DEC 4, 2012
12oz bottle left in the fridge by Wilkes and Lynn. Straw, hay and corn in the aroma. Taste follows suit - malt, grain, slightly metallic. Not as bad as most American pale lagers.

This tastes like spoiled corn and rusty water. One of the worst beers I ever drank. I did not want to finish it.

slightly astringent smell off the bat. slightly less clear than water. almost no taste which might be a good thing... clean finish though
