1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Light lager. Touch of biscuity malt, but it’s hard to find if you’re gulping a frozen mug of the stuff. Too much acidity in the finish (reminds me of some Chinese lagers). I respect the history of these old breweries, but sometimes the beer just doesn’t live up.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A: Pours a crystal clear pale yellow color with a short lived white head.
S: Smells sour right off the bat. Sweet corn and grain and a bit of a grass aroma. Not much to say about this, to be honest.
T: Overly sweet and medicinal. Cough syrup, orange, corn tortilla, and old, decaying grain. Just not pleasing in any sense.
M: The body is light, but it sits on the tongue too long. Medium in carbonation.
D: This was pretty awful. No wonder it only costs $0.50 a can.

Can complements of Fratto. Pours with a small white head that is quick to fade over a clear, pale gold body. Aromas are of DMS, cornflakes, biscuity and lightly grassy. Clean otherwise. Flavors are corn like, medium malt, bready, biscuity. Low bitterness, lively bubbles, dry and thin.

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Thanks to someone for sharing this at bu11zeye’s 10,000th tasting in April 2012. Very light yellow pour with a white head. The aroma and flavor are nothing but grain and are not good. Thin mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tastes like your Dad's beer when you would steal a sip as a kid. Specimen colored - no head, faint fruity aroma. Bland, middle of the road flavor - not leaning towards either hops or malt. Did not expect much - but better than expected, nothing offensive - little metallic in the aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
This bottled brew from Traverse City, MI poured a small sized head of foamy white colored fine to medium sized mostly lasting bubbles that left behind a good sheet lacing and a transparent carbonated light orange yellow colored body. The aroma was very mild with malty hoppy notes to it. The mouth feel was crisp and clean with a mild malty aftertaste. Very nice indeed. The mild malt hop flavor had a slight astringency to an otherwise pretty good brew.
