2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
can from Fryís, pours light gold, thin quickly dissipating white head. Aroma is grassy, dry hay and corn, very earthy. Flavor is thin, very thin, perhaps one of the lightest beers I have ever had. Slight skunked, soured pale malt body with a spritz of strong carbonation finishing clean with little going on.

1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light yellow beer with large white bubbles. Nose is mostly straw and just a smidge of metal. Flavor watered down grain presence. Body thin and watery as well. no finish. light and weak.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Can from Food4Less: Poured a golden light color with a thin head. Aroma smells of pure adjuncts and typical of a light macro beer. The drink is harsh and has nothing but corn flavor and hay. Horrible stuff even though they do have a cool design and color scheme working for them.

LOL! I picked this up to back up my 6er of Stone IPA. Iím a sucker for the talls. Man, this is absolute shit in a can! I know, redundant rating, but this is exceptionally terrible! Once I saw it was only brewed for Kroger, everything became clear--including my piss.

Can bought at Kroger in Lexington, VA. pours with lots of carbonation and a huge white head that disappears quickly. One of the palest palest yellows Iíve seen yet in a beer. smells like corn. tastes like water. Bleh!

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
can from fryís 7/21/11.
this time around i poured a few ounces out and left the rest in the can to drink proper. again, it is clear and similar to the aforementioned lager beer in appearance... golden tinted yellow with a short lived wispy white head.
the aroma and flavor are mild and typical... similar to the lager only this has additional notes of cinnamon, sweat, spicy hops, corn and bile (mmm, bile). it goes down pretty easy until a strange artificial-like sweetness takes over. that is an unfortunate note since this would have been pretty decent swill. 5/3/4/2/10/2.4

1st of all, Iím going to state that my ratings are based off of the competition, price range, and my personal tastes. Personally, Iím a big fan of amber beers. I prefer my beer bolder then your domestic standard lights, but not as stout as, say, a Guinness or Samuel Adams. Iím also not going to give even my favorite beer a perfect score, though, it would come close.
That being said, this is definitely a "ghetto beer". It competes with the like of Natty Ice, Milwaukeeís Best, and King Cobra. I paid $1 for a 24 ouncer of this stuff. This is a broke college kidís beer. This is the stuff you get when youíre looking through the change in your couch because you have to have a beer after a rough day and itís all you can afford.
This beer has less taste then any beer I can think of. It tastes like "beer flavored water", as my girlfriend said. In this beerís defense, however, I think thatís a good thing. Again, super light beers arenít my preference. I just say this because Iíd rather a $1 beer have no taste at all then taste like the toxic urine that is Natty Ice or any thing else in the lowest tier.
Overall, if you have $1 to your name and you HAVE to have a beer, this isnít a bad choice (or rehab, if youíre Jonesing that bad). If you can afford anything better, however, spend a couple more bucks and get that instead.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The aroma is typical macro light lager with corn malt, funk, and a light touch of grassy hops. The appearance is pale gold with a foamy head. The taste is rather good, just very watery. The palate is thin but right for the style and very refreshing. Overall I like this beer, itís quite refreshing on a hot Florida summer night, I just wish it smelled better.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
24 ounce can from a Kroger, opened 5/16/11. Pours a clear golden color with a large frothy white head. Good head retention and lacing. Looks surprisingly good for the style. The aroma is pale grainy notes and grassy almost skunky hops. The taste is grassy hops, a metallic note, corn and grain. Thin body.
