1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle. It pours a clear, pale golden body and a small white head. The aroma is very corn like, cheap tortilla chips I think. Some grassy, fruity notes. Thin on the palate, nice carbonation. The flavor is equally bad as the aroma, even the bitterness is missing almost completely. Rather crappy finish. Drain pour. 130808

When rating beers, also rate the cheap seats. Bottle or can makes a HUGE difference with this beer. Definitely better in a can. The choice to use clear bottles is a mistake that kills the true flavor of the beer.
It has a decent head on a straight pour that takes a couple minutes to die down and left a slow melting iceberg in the center of my glass. The color is clear and golden. The scent is very faint lemongrass.
I will say that the flavor is a little sweet, but watery. I need to take a bigger drink to taste what little it has to offer. Not much for the finish either.
This is my keep in the fridge beer and I honestly thought I would rate it higher. Overall, I still think it is better than most of the beers in its class. Maybe I’ll rate my PBR next.

Draft at the High Life Lounge Des Moines. Pours urine color with a thin white head. Leaves trace lacing. Literally nothing on the nose or the tongue. Finsihes clean. The champagne of beers? More like the Caspar!

No real aroma, flavour, body or sweetness. Very little to comment on. Pours bright yellow with a white head. Appears and tastes fake.

Hint of beer flavor mixes perfectly with the water and filler that they use.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hint of corn and almost some malt on the slightly sweet, yet subtle nose. The flavor is pretty much the same – slightly sweet hint of malt, maybe a bit of corn and little generic sugary flavor. The carbonation comes to wash away the flavor almost as soon as I can start to taste it. There is a bit of a metallic (not quite hoppy) aftertaste, but it’s not harsh.
I think overall this is definitely a serviceable brew for the category. I don’t think it’s as “clean” (or perhaps ’flavorless’) as Bud though, it has more character. The lingering corn and metallic flavor almost simulate real beer flavors, almost.

stronger than average beer, smell not to appealing...a drink to get drunk and not so much for flavor.
