0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Once again this gets a slightly higher piss beer rating because of the higher alcohol content, other than that it is still crap.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Can: Poured a light yellow color lager with a foamy head with better then average retention. Aroma of adjunct is quite powerful and dominated the aroma. Taste is also heavy on the adjunct with some corn and some light alcohol notes. Body is creamier then most macros. Overall, this is another bland macros with maybe a bit more of a creamy body and better head retention.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
Urine-yellow body with a thick, light white head. Lacing. Stinky somewhat hopped aroma. Flavor hints at hops. A friend brought this one over as a joke for a rating, I could not handle more than three small sips.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 24, 2006 2006 cans consumed on 7/14 and 7/15/06.
Pale-maize-golden body is, of course, highly clear, but bubbles do not rise intensely here. White head is small, wispy and fades to partial cover and then nothing.
The nose has a light dose of corn sugar that initially sweetens things, while a hint of vanilla, almost enjoyable (though a flaw) sits softly in between this and the very light, slightly grainy (old barley, bits of honey) malt structure. And whatís that?? Itís hops! Like the barest tickle of saaz hops, almost as if smelling a grass stain on your pants. But it is undoubtedly there and actually quite pleasant for what it is. Aside from the minimal beer notes (and the lager yeast bi-products), a spring water lightness bubbles about in the nose.
Taking a few sips, I keep waiting and waiting for the heavy, syrupy or harsh corn syrup flavors to hit, but they donít. Certainly not the most clean of pale lagers, but for a macro product itís startlingly clean. Light barley grains, medium-high attenuation for the style and just a drizzle of light honey and corn syrup on the finish. Hops are not bitter, nor is the yeast particularly crisp and the water is quite soft. All of this leads to an easy drinking, spring water-concoction with gentle, very bare, grassy hops that are difficult to find, but there none-the-less. No alcohol really, and yet again, I donít find much DMS, just a hint on the finish (I seem to have a difficult time detecting DMS). Aside from the corn syrup notes throughout, itís really rather neutral and actually rather drinkable. Carbonation is low for the style, much lower than most macro products. Mouthfeel is pretty flimsy, but some malt did make itís way through here, albeit in small quantities.

I was recently forced to drink this at a party. Warm piss would have been tastier. Itís a wonder to me why the beers are even brewed.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
I donít know if you can even classify this stuff as beer. Poured straw colour with head that settles rapidly. A strong skunky aftertaste. A beer I tried once years ago before I discovered what real beer tastes like.

Can. Pours yellow\gold with a white head. Aroma of grain, corn, an alcohol. Flavor is weak, grainy, corn-like, watery. Thin body crap brew.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
The beer of choice for our unit softball game....yikes. This was right out of the ice chest...light yellow color with a big whitish head that evaporated as fast as it was created. Not much to smell here...crappy can funk, maybe some skunky malts. Flavor is a big cold corn laden mess....maybe a little isopropyl tinge. Didnít expect much and was graciously rewarded. It does belch pretty good.
