Fatehunter (1414) - Corbett, Oregon, USA - OCT 1, 2012
Poured into a lager glass. Pretty clear pour, light straw color in the glass. Three and half fingers of head. Despite tall head, it dissipated rapidly. It smells day-long wet grains. Not horrible. Watery taste at first, quickly moved towards sweet... and just stayed there. Not a malty sweet, just a pure sugar sweetness that lingers uncomfortably long. Smooth and light body. Moderate carbonation. Sticky texture. I did not like that. It is what it is. Thankfully it is cheap. I’ve had way worse cost to satisfaction ratios with other beers. Still, it’s doubtful I’ll be physically able to finish the 24 oz can.

Cruzer (72) - St. Albert, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 1, 2015
This just happened. Definitely better than I expected, but still a low quality beer. Aroma and taste of sweet corn and malts, nothing really else comes up. 8% ABV actually is well hidden. Felt like I had a hangover after I finished this. Probably wouldn’t get again.

Only good when you are already drunk/waiting on the next paycheck. Straw wheat aroma and watery corn flavor. Readily available at your local 24hr CVS. Nostalgic, but objectively an atrocious drink in today’s standards.

Brandon1989 (386) - Euless, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2015
Pours a piss yellow with a huge white head that left a lot of lacing. The aroma was very skunky, dirty water, dirty grass, worst smelling beer I have ever had. The taste is corn, alcohol, dirty water, poorly put together.

TEJA (1414) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - NOV 6, 2014
A 24 Oz. can from local liqur store in downtown San ransisco. Long lingering light beige head. Clear yellow color. Big alcohol aroma and a small tuch of malt. The alcohole comes through in the taste with a small caramell malts. Had a hard time finnish the first glass of the can, but now it’s rated and I know not to bye it again.

"sorry...not feeling ghetto here. haven’t drank this swill in a long while, but i remember it’s a prime example of the unsettled debate...is it better to drink a crappy watery beer, or a crappy stronger beer. no escaping the "flavor" here, and that’s not a good thing. this stuff is foul."

Transfer from BA review on 9-7-13- Poured from bottle into a pint glass Appearance – As could be seen from the clear bottle, the brew pours a medium golden color. Upon pouring there is a huge two billowy white head on the top of the brew, which fades very fast to leave a light level of lace on the sides of the glass. Smell – The aroma is quite heavy of a stale sweet corn smell mixed with a little bit of breadiness. There are some lighter notes of a musty graininess as well as some light rice smell and a bit of herb. Taste – The taste begins with a light, but somewhat crisp flavor of corn and a bit of a bready taste. In the beginning the taste is not nearly as sweet as the nose would have suggested. The taste does however end up gaining more sweetness as the flavor advances. A sweet corn and a little bit of caramel develop more potency as the flavor moves on. While it sweetness it also gains some more musty grain and papery tastes as the flavor advances. In the end a light lemon flavor joins the profile leaving a corny and musty flavor on the tongue. Mouthfeel – The body of the beer was thin and slightly watery with a carbonation level that was on the slightly higher side. The thin body and the higher carbonation are very nice for the style making it a quick and easy drinker. Overall – An alright malt, but not the best out there. It is a bit on the crisper side for a malt, so if that is what your going for then this is a decent choice.

(bottle - plastic 40 oz) Gold pour with a fizzy head. Smells like corn and cheap. Flavor is sweet corn, bad grass and not much else. Gets the job done.

Can from liquor mart in New York September 2013. Big hit of alcohol in this one, not bad but nothing really impressive.
