12 oz bottle taste and smells like water and corn. Doesn’t taste good at all.

Nate (3778) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2013
From bottle. Sweet with beany alcohol-light vegetal nose and a bit of hop-fruity character. Dull muted nose. Dull golden clear with thin white head. Medium body with medium-dull carbonation. Sweet and neutral fruit character. Light to medium chalky bitterness with vegetal-metallic notes. Reminds me of a European strong lager, actually.

FROTHINGSLOSH (5077) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 28, 2013
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a slightly cloudy yellow-golden color with a medium sized foamy yellow-white head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was semi-sweet and tangy with light pine and a bit of herbal hops. The flavor was tangy, bitter and a bit tart with faint citric and floral hops and a touch of honey. Medium length tangy and bitter citric and herbal hops. Light to medium body. Eh.

MacBoost (1399) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - APR 26, 2013
Holy shit is this garbage juice. Literally. Sweet corn flavored water that came out of a dumpster behind the golden coral.

mcox90 (1588) - Wilton, New Hampshire, USA - APR 25, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours a hazy light gold with a 1 finger white head. Minor lace. Weak aroma of biscuity malt & foral hops. Flavor is semi sweet with more biscuit followed by some mild pine resin. Thin palate. Not a lot going on here. If this is the beer that started the craft beer movement, than it’s a wonder it got off the ground. Boston Lager is way better.
