COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
There are times when an ice-cold beer fits the bill. This is an easy-drinking brew that’s reliably tasty without being fussy. It’s a straightforward beer with good hop flavor without it being over the top. This speaks of a simpler time when you could order a beer, and they wouldn’t bring you a full menu. They’d just bring a good beer at a good price. Life can be complicated, but your beer does not have to be. Enjoy the taste of Simpler Times.

"Sweet" tasting breakfast cereal taste is something I just can’t get past in this beer. It’s like someone put a semi-sugary cereal into the beer somehow, and it has entirely taken over. Pale gold in appearance, thin white head. Minimal nose, with some light cooked corn. Finish is sweet and cereal-like.

Another crappy beer by Minhas. I don’t trust Minhas Craft Brewery with any of their beers.

Surprisingly not bad. Malty; sweet but not overly so; conceals a decent alcohol kick for a PL. Well-made despite being cheap, in short

Old rating. Yup, macro lager from Trader Joes…exactly what you expect. Something like 50 cents a beer. Corny, stale, some weird off funk. Tasted it with pils…almost exactly the same.

Sledutah (5663) - Utah, USA - MAR 25, 2015
12oz can from Doug
Pours clear dark golden, small white head that dissipates to nothing, no lacing. Aroma is sweet malts, straw and honey. Taste is sour, banana, corn
Tastes like a malt liquor without the alcohol. Not terrible, but not very good.

4 out of a 6 pack brought down to me by my mother in law after a friend left them in her fridge... thanks! Drinking straight from the can, so no clue on the appearance. Aroma is sweet corm. Tastes are toffee, caramel, honey, corn. Not horrific. Everything well balanced. Still a corn front, but would rather drink this over standard macros any day.

crossovert (8682) - Illinois, USA - JAN 28, 2015
355ml can. Clear golden pour, quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of tutti fruity bubblegum. Flavor is malt liquor with a hint of fruit. Basically malt liquor that isn’t labelled as such

12oz can, thanks to Chris R. $0.59 sticker on top of the tab. Code on the bottom of the can reads 15 294 16. Clear golden color, with a nice finger of slightly off-white head. Fades to virtually nothing.. Caramel malt up front, bready malt, some yellow corn and macro lagery funk. Moderate to bigger sweet taste... pretty sweet... with a light to moderate bitter finish, and a bigger bite than expected. Medium body, kind of slick. Light to moderate strength carbonation, with a kind of rough texture. A fuller-bodied amber lager... But not a great one by any means. Worth trying for 60c I suppose. You get what you pay for.

I was actually surprised with how good this was for the price! Weak head and no lacing. Bit darker than a typical lager and certainly a higher alcohol content. Malty with a bit of sweet malty corn flavor. For an inexpensive route, I’d rather serve this than most mega-brews.

12oz can, from Trader Joe’s in Seattle. Pale, still, gray gold. Mild eggy banana, typical sweet lager. A bit sour banana but not the worst strong lager I’ve tried.

12oz can - I guess if you wanted to save a few dollars and go this route, you could. Aside from being really cheap, not Bud/Miller/Coors and an okay beer in a can you shouldn’t expect too much from this beer. Corn would be the one item in both the aroma and flavor that was easy to pick-out. But there was also some wet grass that was there, which I would say could be hops...or maybe they used wet grass in the ingredient list. A touch of agave syrup/creamed corn on the palate, with just a bit of hop bite. Easy to drink for sure.
