Just like the original, but better. No Garnet & Gold on the can, but more alcohol makes me smile. Oh yeah, and Beast has Bite. And it tastes yummy. And itís good. Go PiKA Buggy.

Poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass. This brew is much better than what the Beer average beer connoisseur would consider. A clear golden color with a minimal white head. A nice malt flavor that is very refreshing. A pleasant and affordable surprise.

Ice cold on a 110 degree day. Kinda ídirtyí tasting. Rice? Old grain. Dead hops. Not sickly sweet. Not nearly as awful as price and reputation would suggest.

Itís brewed to be a cheap beer and delivers same. Very thin, low malt flavor, almost no hops and corn corn corn. Another good example of macro beer.

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt, sweet corn and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter with a long sweet corn finish. Body is medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Can, 24oz. A clear, golden beer topped by a dense, finger-thick off-white head. A malty, sweetish and fruity beer with a touch of corn. Canned pears too. Itís soft and semi-dry on the palate, yet it feels quite sweetish, at least in the flavor. Pale malts, corn, canned pears and perhaps, just perhaps a touch of bitterness. Medium body. Long, corn and pear finish. Not horrific, far, far from good. Should probably be served at freezing temp. 150610

From a 32oz can.

Pours a golden color. Easy to overpour, way too much head. Decent lacing on the glass.

Smell is pretty rough. Itís astingent and not inviting. I canít quite put my finger on why it smells like that, but why would I put my finger there after smelling this?

Tastes okay actually. Itís not terrible. Itís pretty strong. Perhaps stronger than many malt liquors Iíve had. Itís pretty sweet, but more rough than sweet. Iím guessing thereís a lot of corn in this. There is some bitterness, but that doesnít contribute to the roughness. Itís weird I know.

Mouthfeel is medium. Itís crisp. It finishes pretty clean. Itís dry. Itís about average for an ice beer. It does have an aftertaste that comes through LONG after a swallow. Thatís not so pleasant....

Overall, I really donít like it so much. I really like Natural Ice and Bud Ice. But this one is not so good. It comes out of a can. Itís weird, the can has the old narrow mouth on it, and itís hard to pour. Not that it has anything to do with the beer, but itís not a plus. BUT, for the price, and the alcohol contained therein, itís not bad.

Pours a clear light gold color with white head. Cereal grains and a little skunk on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with boozy grain.
