Thanks to Blake and Jenny for the 40.. could’ve used a little help drinking it. Poured straight out of the 40 into my mouth.. apple juice yellow in the clear glass. The aroma picked up corn and sweet pale malt.. really not offensive (at least when it was cold, right out of the fridge). The flavor found similar.. sweet creamed corn, pale malts, and a little cardboard, with prickly carbonation throughout.. sweet and a little sticky on the finish. Light-bodied with lots o’ carbonation throughout.. almost creamy on the middle.. OK overall feel, but the big carbo made it hard to drink fast enough.

Would pound this back after eight hours of cooking for jerks. nasty, filthy, left me with a feeling of extreme guilt as i stumbled around my humble abode. eventually developed acute gout. a foul, evil, predatory taste. would later fill with cold water and suck back in a feeble attempt to stave off gout attack.

First off, the reason I give this the (high) score that I do is that it’s cheap and does precisely what the imbiber should expect....gets you wasted. It smells like sweet, corny piss, like a cat pissed in some HFCS and then rolled in some hay. The appearance is shitty, probably better left in a paper bag. A thin white frothy head that dissolves quick and lets you see that sweet golden syrup. A decent amount of carbonation in the greasy thing. No real surprises from this beast, just a medium body with a slick, mouthfeel. If I ever become homeless this will be a daily treat. She gets ya drunk boys.

Limited aroma with yeast. Taste is sweet with not much else. Not really offensive at all.

UPDATED: MAY 7, 2014 Can pour. See through yellow with an aggressive amount of quickly dissipating head. On looks alone I would say this resembles an average pilsner. Nose is distant. If I focus I can suss out corn starch and trace amount of hops. Flavor is sweet malts and not a lot else. No balancing bitterness to speak of. The aftertaste if of aspartame. This beer does the English proud.

Nose smells of HCl. Goes down the hatch like malty radiator fluid. Formaldehyde aftertaste. Gets the job done for cheap.

40oz bottle (Old Notes)-Pours a medium golden with a small head. Aroma of corn and alcohol. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew was not very tasty.

Pours a pale yellow with a white foamy head. aroma of fruity and banana. Taste is creamy. Makes me want to puke. I’d rather drink my own piss.
