oh god the horror. Back in my abject poverty days, my friends dared me to pick up a 12 pack of this for 5.49. It was still money wasted. So far from beer as to create a new standard for piss-water. And the ice was even worse.

As cheap as this is, it is still better than the typical offerings of the monster brewers. Iíd take this over a Bud any day.

4.49 for a 12 pack! A fricken 12 pack! Most of my beers I buy in singles cost more than 12 of these. Now lets see why...Pours a very clear golden color with a nice carbonated white head that dissipates very quickly. Aroma is scummy water, rice, maybe some hops....thatís a big maybe!! Thin taste, a sweet corn taste with absolutely nothing more. Except for the water. Watery palate. You know Josef light I gave a 0.5, because it was horrible, but this isnít half as bad. Not good but not as bad as the light.

Never seen this beer before, but it is hard to pass up a 5.99 12 pack. Smells like corn, very light in color, big head from much carbonation. Taste is a little sweet, with not much else to it. Good if you have friends who want to drink cheap beer. Also, look how fancy it sounds . . . special reserve . . . Hoffbauer . . . onlookers will hever guess that it is the cheapest brew in town.

Really not bad for a cheap beer, not that I would drink this in mass quanitites. Has some fruit alcohol flavors, like so many of these cheap beers do. Soapy watery finish

Hurray, an opportunity to rate another fine offering from everyoneís favorite brewery, Gluek! 12 oz can, a case of which costs 4.79 at Kroger. Pours a very, very pale yellow with a slight green hue to it and a surprisingly well-formed white head. The aroma is rather weak and cereal. The smell of yard waste is in there, too, but itís very faint, as is a weird saccharine sweetness. The flavor is, well, nothing. Thereís some faint malty hay notes in there, but itís mostly water. It gets slightly sweet after several sips, like Sweet-N-Low, and the finish becomes very artificial tasting. This is very tedious, and by no means good, but it doesnít have any specific characteristics that directly offend me. I guess that makes it slightly better than most other macro swill.

I donít know, man. I really can drink this stuff. I donít know why, but this stuff is mad drinkable for me. Itís crazy, but I really like this nasty horsepiss of a beer. Itís five bucks for twelve and it works.

The only really distinctive aroma and flavor of this is can. Smells like can, tastes like can with a hint of beer. I gave it a couple 2s because there was a hint of fruity yeast that attempted to penetrate the cannyness and failed.

Light-tasting, a bit watered-down, doesnít really smell or taste like anything. Pretty refreshing if youíre thirsty, but for half the price of Budweiser, shit... I had to try it.
