(can - 12 oz) Got this one out of my grandfathers fridge. He buys it because it is $9 a case. Clear yellow with a fizzy head. Aroma is sour, stale, and corn. Flavor is the same. Bitter hops, stale corn, and a metallic taste. It is a beer.

Bought one night while slumming. Not much tast at all. What I expect from a cheap lager. Terrible aroma with a hint of garbage. The nine dollar price sums up this beer. Not recommended!

Gawd! This almost made me gag. It tastes worse than Corona. I is a bit better in the aroma standards though. I can’t shake the smell of cat urine when i opened a Corona. Like that beer maybe a half dozen limes stuffed in it may work.

cheap (4109) - Beaver Valley, Beaver County, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 26, 2007
Ubiquitous pale yellow appearance and head. Sweet and mild corn aroma, tho it says pilsner. First taste has good medium creamy carbonation. Not too offenesive. Very little industrial bitterness building. Friendly and for the most part well behaved. Finish is at times a tad watery. Almost as good as Old German or Schmidt’s. Much better and more refined than city lager or king lager. Could be a good repeatable beer, especially for the price! 33 cents a can. Hey, for the price of gas we may need to sacrifice!

Hey at 8.50 a case in kentucky you know that this is a beer meant to get drunk with. It is definitely better than natty light so if it comes down to a choice between really cheap beers this one wins.

thedm (4948) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 18, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a medium sized head of foamy finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent typically carbonated straw yellow colored body. The aroma was malty and grassy. The crisp mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of malt mild hops astringent and grassy. Not one that I would buy again.

Can. Poured pale color with a minimal fizzy white head that diminished quickly with virtually no lacing. Light grainy citrus aroma. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. I would not recommend this to a freind.

We threw a rager and bought a case of this as a joke. It was watery at first, but then made me gag. Not good, but cheap. I’ll buy it for a party and let drunk people drink it.

maltdog (618) - Colorado, USA - JUL 11, 2005
Abandoned in my fridge by a houseguest. Pours lemon yellow, very clear and very pale. Initially attractive white head is gone in under a minute. Dull aromas of sulphur and hot grass, sweet corn and maybe some Belgian spiciness? Hop aroma, perhaps? Flavor is lightly sweet, raw corn juice and steamed carrots, softly carbonated, Sprite. Actually, it reminds me of a sip of Zima I tried once. Body is round and light, but not watery. Semidry finish with grainy and sugary aftertaste. Far superior flavor to budweiser. A beer for white zinfandel drinkers.

I have an old Jacob Best windbreaker I won in a racquetball tournament 25 years ago. It’s OK beer and it’s cheap.
