2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Transfered from BA review on 2-17-12 -
Poured from can into pint glass
Appearance - Pours a light golden color with a billowy white head with huge carbonation bubbles entrapped within. The head fades quickly leaving a very light amount of lacing.
Smell - Corn is the main aroma detected with a slight hint of caramel sweetness in the background.
Taste - A sweeter taste first meet the tongue. Mainly corn in nature. The flavor however slowly bitters as time goes on and leaves a rather subdued taste in the mouth; not a bad one just bitterness.
Mouthfeel - A bit on the thin side with lots of carbonation. Nothing to shout about.
Overall - It is very easy to drink. Its subtle flavor profile and light body and aromas make it very easy to down; like water. Likely would be good on a very hot day when served very cold, otherwise nothing to pine over and just pretty ordinary.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
I just recently found the notes on this one as Iíve had this more than enough times over the years.
This was poured into a pilsener and a pint glass at various times. Iíve had this in the bottle and from the can.
When this is poured, the appearance was a transparent golden yellow with strings of carbonation seen rising at a drastic pace. There is a one finger white foamy head that fizzles within seconds and leaves no lacing.
The smell is weak through super light corn and rice adjuncts.
The taste is mainly just corn sweet with a crisp corn/rice aftertaste and no finish.
On the palate, it sat extremely light for the style and had a carbonation that is fairly smooth. It did have an extremely good sessionability about it.
Overall, though not exactly my cup of tea, I understand this enough to say its not bad for the style but its not one Iíd generally seek out. Probably shotgun one at a party if it was served, but other than that, it is what it is.

Great shotgun beer challenge choice. Goes down easy and is cheap. Really cool promotions.

Pours clear golden with thin white head. Nose is... Aromas are malty, with a hint of citrus. High carbonation, light body. Quite refreshing, especially on a birthday night ! :)

Drank from bottle. Aroma is of cereal. Tastes sweet and bready. Almost no bitterness. Strong notes of corn. Very light body and mouth feel. Moderate carbonation. Finishes sweet with notes of skunk. A little better than most TV beers.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
12oz bottle poured into a shaker. The aroma is a mostly doughy, bready character with some sweet raisin and grape juice notes. Itís slightly acidic on the nose with some background notes of caramel and corn. It pours clear, mostly yellow, with a shade of orange. Itís a very oily look, much more so once the low density, large bubbled white head dissipates to nothing quickly. Thereís no lace left behind. Very light tastes; light bitter and light sweetness. Itís a light bodies beer on the thin side of oily for itís texture. Thereís a very light, prickly carbonation. It finishes crisp, with a grainy / resin feel and a bready flavor (cornbread maybe?) as well as a sweet lemon citrus with a slight touch of caramel. The lemon hangs around with a light grassy / resin touch in the aftertaste, but itís light, and short lived.

Pours a clear, pale gold with a frothy white head. It smells slightly sweet and grainy. Pretty bland in flavor with a slight grainy taste. Not too bitter at all.
