2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Reviewed from notes.
This was poured into a pilsener glass for the review but have had this more than enough times over the years out of the can.
The appearance was a clear yellow color with lots of carbonation bubbles seen rising. The head was about a finger’s worth of white bubbliness that just died without leaving any lacing whatsoever.
The smell had an "iced corn" that comes across fairly sweet.
The taste was sweet with nothing really off.
On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a decent sessionability about it.
Overall, hey, not as bad as I had thought. Definitely, one of the better "iced" pale lagers.

Your standard adjunct lager, but this one had an especially noticeable corn smell that I find to be off putting. Not very enjoyable.

Sampled with family. Thankfully they drink all the crap and I don’t have to pay for it. As far as the beer, pale yellow, grainy, corn, skunk, one of the worst.

Transfer from BA review on 3-29-12 -
Poured from can into pint glass
Appearance – Pours a golden color with a big white head. The head fades very fast giving way to almost no lacing.
Smell – Some rather unappealing aromas of cardboard and metal shards mixed with a very light corn aroma.
Taste – A very crisp taste meets the tongue. It is mainly sweeter corn malt in nature but has a slight bready flavor as well. Toward the end there is a light papery taste, but it is very light. Overall I was a bit surprised as it was a crisper and more refreshing taste then the nose let on.
Mouthfeel – It has a lighter body with a slightly above average carbonation level. It is very much what you would expect.
Overall – It really has nothing going for it except its crispness. This would be good for right after a run or hard bike on a hot summer day when you want something without too complex a body and that is very crisp and easy to sit, relax, and cool down with.

Look. If you buy a Keystone, any Domestic beer, an Imported beer or even some IPA’s. You’re trying to take your mind off of things, catch a buzz and unwind. Otherwise WTF are you drinking beer for? Drink strawberry soda if you want amazing flavor.
This beer isn’t the greatest flavors for beer. But it’s 24oz of beer for $1, and you get near 6% abv which is what truly matters in any beer. Would you drink a super flavorful beer with 0% abv? Prolly not. Otherwise you’d be drinking O’Douls.
It sucks. But not as much as when you only have water and really need a beer. And lets not forget. The first beers ever produced. Probably weren’t IPA’s or masterpeices. They were beer. And beer sometimes is beer.

Mild lemon and applesauce nose. Crystal clear yellow, thick head, good lacing. Watered down apple juice initially, ending with a surge of malted and unmalted grain. A little soapy. Really quite serviceable and something I may actually buy again if I find myself in a convenience store somewhere in Bumblescum and absolutely have to have a beer.

Tastes like a party that didn’t get keystone light. Use for beer pong to get drunk. No taste present.

Can: Poured a golden goodness with white head. Aroma is from crayons. Taste is sweet grass and water. Some grain in the finish.

Ah the aroma of cornmeal grist. Nice pissy yellow, and it also kind of smells that way. Nearly still, it pours with head but where does it go?Frozen sugar taste, all I think of is Jeff Daniels licking the ski lift. Not packing much body either. Doesn’t compare well to the Beast Ice IMO. I am fond of these cheap-crappy made lagers, but just because you route for the Generals doesn’t mean you have to love their bench.

No aroma at all, taste is a bit strong of alcohol. Just what you would expect of this beer, but easy to drink and get a buzz.
