Reviewed from notes. This one was poured into a pilsener. The appearance was a mostly transparent yellow color with a thin quarter fingered white foamy head that died in a fizzy and bubbly sort of nature. There was barely any lacing. The smell had some light sweetened cooked corn but that was even hard to pick out. The taste took that light sweetened cooked corn and it seemed that it was really toned down a lot as it came across really watery in the finish. There wasn’t any aftertaste. On the palate, this one sat about a light on the body with a decent sessionable aspect to it. The carbonation was pretty smooth. Overall, not a bad American Adjunct Lager but nothing mind blowing either. I could see me packin’ a few of these down during a Mexican meal.

Nothing wrong with this if you like plain lager. On a HOT day with this REALLY cold it would be quite drinkable. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A little more bitterness and flavor than your typical macro lager. Nice and easy drinking on a hot summer day. Not bad when you want something light with a slight hint of flavor on a hot day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bright golden straw pour with a thin layer of stark white head, medium clarity. High carbonation, lively mouthfeel and higher than average thickness, finishes with a soft numb cold feeling. Mellow grainy aroma, a bit of sour lager yeast but not very sweet. Kind of nice smelling overall. Taste has a pert carmel sweetness, underlying light metallic hop, subtle lager yeast. Robust and refreshing lager.

Ugh... Watered down malt extract... Carbonated corn water.. Bad even in a segment of bad beers.

Clear, pale gold pour with a small, white head. The aroma is mostly corn and a little stale. It has a light, crisp body with lively carbonation. The taste is mildly bitter with a slightly dry finish.

Decided to drink this for Cinco de mayo. Poured into a glass. You instantly smell skunk. Eww. Almost no head. Tastes a lot better than it smells. Just a sweet corn blah taste. Will be adding some lime wedges to help make it through my 3 bottles.
