12 oz via can at a friend’s house. Light and domestic schwag beer all the day. Easy to drink. Consumed directly after a Natural Ice, which may have helped its cause.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Clear pale gold color with a fast disappearing head. Aroma is sweet corn and grains. Tastes like sweetener, grains and alcohol, a little over-carbonated too. It’s drinkable for a cheap beer but I’d probably still go for something else. The sweetness is just too big of a turnoff for me.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can. Pours a clear pale yellow with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has lots of corn and light sweet grain with a hint of sweetness. Flavor is similar with corn and straw up front and a touch of crispness in the finish.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
24 oz can poured into a glass. Appearance is a nice clean gold with a slight white head. Aroma is grass, cereal, sugar, alcohol. Taste is sweet, corn, grass, grain. No skunk, which is nice. The sweetness is a bit much. But drinks pretty good on a warm day after a workout. Also goes good with a bit of dark chocolate.

Not as bad as some of the rankings. If you are expecting a great craft beer. This will be disappointing. I'd you want something other than water after mowing the grass this will do fine.

UPDATED: DEC 23, 2013 24 oz can. When in La Crosse... Pale gold pour with a small pure white head. Sweet grains, but no real character anywhere to be found. At least it isn’t skunky.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Nothing special, very little aroma, little taste, nothing offensive. At $11 a case it's really not bad for this style. But if I'm going to drink this style the extra money for a Grain Belt is worth it.

I had to try this just for the sheer novelty… a 24 ounce can of ahem, "beer", for LESS THAN a smaller quanity of bottled water! No alcohol content listed anywhere, is that legal? Plus, my can states "brewed by Universal Sales, Inc., La Crosse, WI". Anyhoo, pours a pale clear straw color, almost with a pistachio hue, and a small shortlived fizzy head. Sugary, corn, Yellow Delicious (yuck) apple, and metallic aroma. Flavorwise it’s maltier than I expected, albeit with butter, apple again, and a big sugary candycorn component, which lingers for eons. Rusty, cantaloupe, and cardboard aftertaste. Relatively thick palate for such a light colored beer, a bit of an oily texture. Pleasantly restrained carbonation (not fizzy). Hey, it’s INFINITELY better than anything with "bud" or "budweiser" in the name.
