12 oz. bottle. Pours a clear gold with the thinnest of foamy, white heads. Ah, the sweet smell of corn and other adjuncts! It pairs nicely with the bit of skunk I smell too. Medium-high carbonation with a very light, watery mouthfeel. Light grain and corn notes on the palate paired with the kiss of hops. In fact, I am pretty sure they just waved the hops over the kettle while this was "brewing". Clean, short finish. Better known as carbonated water. On the good side, it isn’t offensive in any way except the lack of flavor.

Awful corn watery concoction. I had forgotten how bad beer could be. Nasty and cheap. Terrible.

Can. It’s fine, but not very clean. I will put a lime in this one on occasion to make it more tolerable. It’s really messy, even for pale lager. I will still buy it from time to time. i like the can. Thats really all I can say.

Taste 10/9 can. Looks: Copper head with no body. Aroma: Some sweet malt and corn. Taste: Very weak bodied lager with low carbonation and finishes with a bite. You get exactly what you expect from it.

12 oz. bottle. Light yellow body with white fizzy head which vanishes quickly. Smell of plain hops with corn malt undertone, no bad aromas but nothing notable here. Taste is of paper, it’s very watery. At least it’s got 6% booze.

Bottle at Tonali, Durham (pretty good Mex joint). About how I remembered it, which is to say assy. Looks like apple juice, no carbonation, smells of factory cardboard - you need that lime in circumstances like this, as a handy beer-masking agent. Pass the chips.

12oz bottle. first of all, the entire hotel room smells like a skunk sprayed me then crawled under the bed and died.....not much different than how the room smelled when i got in today anyway. the beer is an ugly gold with a quickly dimishing white head. a very bitter lager. like a budwieser with much less carbonation. dry. not sweet, not malty, and definitely not hoppy. fairly tasteless.
