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 it’s good. Go PiKA Buggy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Can @ Presidential Suite. Picked this garbage up at a gas station somewhere in Bloomington, IL. Clear golden pour with a white head. Typical smells of corn, apple, and grass. A bit watery and just sort of sweet. Not as bad as I’d anticipated. Just sweet and corny. Some grain and apple juice, a bit of soapy bitterness. Mildly grassy. Sort of twangy.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
24 fl. oz can. Golden in the glass, high carbonated, short living foamy white head. Low sour grain and mash on the nose. Tastes like not so sweet limonade. Maybe malty hints in the background. Cheap.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
24 oz. can that I only had a little bit of from backlog notes 07/08. Pours a pale straw yellow color with a thin white head. The aroma and flavor is surprisingly boozy (not as much as Natural Ice) with the typical corn notes, sawdust, nasty graininess, light tart apple. Just no reason for this unless a macro drinker is trying to get there faster.

Taste: Sweet malt, no hop flavors at all. Not bitter. Generic flavors.
Palate: Watery, light body. Abrupt finish.
Overall: Just generic, adjunct-y lager beer. Light on flavor, light on body.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Clear gold with a thick, white head.
Corn, honey, grain aroma.
Taste is barley malt, slightly sweet.
Body actually has some heft to it.
Truly not bad for what it is.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
can. Golden with one finger head. Sweet with some light corn and mild hops. I want to hate this, but it’s not that bad. Perhaps I’m just in a more forgiving mood than usual.

1.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
24 oz can, bottom stamped JUL2814. Nose lightly sweet with heavy corn dust. Clear pour is deep golden with healthy carbonation and a sudsy bright white head. Watery body is strongly sweet, cereal grain with floral character and a (actually pretty nice!) bready finish. Crisp and slightly refreshing. There’s some corn here, yes, but the floral hops are more the focus, and despite the ’hangover taste’, there’s also a surprising feel of freshness. Could do a lot worse!

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
A brilliant looking adjunct lager with a dark golden hue. Refreshing, and thirst quenching. For a cheap macro lager, this one is top notch when one figures in the price. Oddly, this beer will not give you a headache either, which is a benefit in it’s own right. A wonderful choice for the budget conscious adjunct lager everyday "Joe."

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
From can. Carbonic gaseousness, very mild astringent-dusty hop note, a wee bit of sulfur and some corn sweetness in the nose. Pale golden straw clear with visible carbonation, topped with white foamy lacing head. Watery body with high carbonation, fizzy. Starts dull with mild corn sweetness, light metallic notes, and a bit of carbonic acidity. Very little hop bitterness, with fairly clean finish with light sulfur notes. Tasteless after, watery.
