Pours straw colored with a white mostly diminishing head. Mod lacing. Aroma has herb hoppy nose and taste is lightly sweat. I also detct some sweatness in flavor but it is rapidly lost to the wattery body and texture. I am not impressed.

Uglyradio (791) - Greenville, South Carolina, USA - JUL 26, 2003
This one pours a clear, golden yellow color with a small, white head. The head does not linger and the beer emits an aroma of hay, grassy hops, and mild skunkiness. It has a light body with lively carbonation and a crisp mouthfeel. The flavor is very faintly malty up front with some corn sweetness. The finish is crisp and slightly sweet. Fairly bland, but not really bad.

hayden1215 (321) - Ohio, USA - JUL 26, 2003
Yellow in color with a small white head. Aroma is light malt with dirty sock notes. Flavor is slighly sweet, not much in the way of hops. Watery.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Color is clear yellow with a white fluffy, cheese soft head with divets as it settled down to a skim on the top. Smell is lightly sweet, has some wet grains, corn I think, and some plastic wrapper. Taste is a little empty, some malt thats very slightly sweet and corn starch and is just watery. Feel is light bodied and watered. Have a glass of water and throw some corn and tall grass in.

Cashazza (217) - Morganville, Maryland, USA - JUN 28, 2003
Yellow, smells of corn, decent head, slightly sweet with a bitter finish. Nothing really distinguishes this beer from any other lager.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - JUN 25, 2003
Corn oil-like golden colour. Diminishing frothy white head. Corn and grass aroma. Bland, light, empty, watery, maybe a slight oily corn taste. Boring.

TipsyMcStager (1139) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 29, 2003
Foul heated plastic aroma. Pours hangover piss yellow, completely flat, head weak. Corn laden taste, unsatisfying flavour. Serve extra cold to kill taste buds.

presario (4828) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 28, 2003
Bright clear light yellow. White head. Lots of carbonization. Very light aroma uncharacteristic of anything. A sweet, slightly syrupy lager suitable for drinking in very hot climates. Indistinguishable from many other lagers of the world.

BeerPrince (1701) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 29, 2003
Clear straw colour with no head. Very thin and corny tasting beer. Finish was thin and carboanted. Not great.

Aubrey (3482) - Bellingham, Washington, USA - APR 10, 2003
Clear straw in color with a head that fights to stay alive. Watery palate. Tin-like, corny malts are light and difficult to distinguish. Strongly carbonated, relative to the light malts that try to keep up. Has somewhat of a "beery" macro flavor to it, especially in the finish. Drinkable, but boring and bland.
