What is there to say? It’s the "Champagne of beers." That means it’s good, right? Oh, wait, it’s just a silly marketing ploy. Nevermind. This is a drain pour. Rated 11/22/2000

1.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured from a clear glass bottle, this was my attempt to "Take Back the High Life". Pours clear and sparkling (I guess that is why they call it "The Champagne of Beer") light yellow with an average, fizzy white head, medium-long retention with good lacing. Aroma is light corn, wet notebook paper, rice, and celery. Flavor is wet paper (I know because I made spitballs in elementary school), rice, and light butter. Light body and low warmth, moderate carbonation (remember, this is "The Champagne of Beer") and a dry, thin finish.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Oh yeah. Forty. Pours an absolutely crystal clear pale golden color with a large frothy head. Poor head retention and lacing. Thankfully no skunk despite the clear bottle. Aroma of grass, dirty grains and corn. Taste is corn and a big grassy finish Some faint malty notes, but mostly just corn. Watery. Thin.

Ins Glas ergießt sich ein hell goldgelbes Bier mit geringer Schaumkrone. Geruch ganz leicht malzig, getreidig. Geschmack sehr wässrig, minimal malzig, getreidig, ganz leicht herb.

I dont really feel like rating it like I rate REAL beer, but I must say this beer sure has gotten me so many memories. Golden colour, aroma of grains and some malt, thin maltish and grainy flavour. Cheap and drinkable when washed down well cooled. The most hilarious about it is the slogan: "The Champagne of beers"! Great joke!.

Come on, this isn’t beer. The only way to drink this is to bring it to the point of almost being frozen and then you will need to be as thirsty as you have ever been. NASTY.

0.5 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
UPDATED: JUN 15, 2006 Soapy aroma with very slight floral notes and a big canned-corn aroma. Not altogether pleasant.
Crystal clear light yellow hue. Small, creamy white head. Mostly diminishing with so-so lacing.
The flavor is of seltzer water with just a touch of hop extract and corn... Ok, Ok, I tried to rate this beer seriously. I give up! It’s just another rice/corn laden American standard beer. If you must drink it, do so ICE COLD in a frosty mug so you don’t actually have to taste it. Drink it in the parking lot before a football game in the freezing cold.

Tasted in a 12 oz bottle at the Black Sheep in Colorado Springs, CO. Incredibly light, translucent Pale Lager appearance. Skunky Pale Lage aroma. Very light body with not much flavor other than bitterness and skunkiness.
