Better than the light version but definately nothing to go buy. Typical cheap college beer.

355ml can. Appreciate the patriotism but this one is a lower common denominator one in terms of character, I love myself some pale lager from time to time but this one isn't as goood as say a boxer, very light and flavorless.

Oh man this stuff was bad and headache making. Great can and slogan though.

Another gift from "cheap", I did like this version better than the watered down version of this beer. Good cheap beer that you need to keep in the fridge for grass cutting, and friends over that don’t appreciate good micros. Decent for price, and is it really 5%abv?

Medium sized white smooth head with sparse lacing, transparent, carbonated, and a yellow hue. Malty and corn aroma. Blah, uninteresting, malty, and corn flavor no why I see it was 9.99 a case

From Can. Courtesy of Snoop56. Pours golden yellow. Smells of corn and water. Heavy corn, sweet and sweet. mmmmmmm.

From can, courtesy of Snoop59. Light hoppy notes with corn. Sweet with some alcohol. WalMart, mullets, and Cope. Pale golden clear with thin head. Light body and light carbonation. Go ’Merica! Sweet corn and honey, no bitterness. Fairly clean after. Not horrible, great for sitting on the porch watching the bug zappers.

Can. Poured a pale clear gold with a quickly dissipating white soda like head. Aroma flavor was full of adjuncts with a bit of a grain note. Flavor was similar with plenty of adjunct (corn) and a bit of grass and hay.

The main appeal to American is the cost. Its really cheap and something that poor college kids have no trouble sharing with their friends. Its inexpensive and its not terrible. It looks and smells like most other macro lagers and it is relatively drinkable. Serving type: can Reviewed on: 03-05-2007 19:28:13

Beershine (5253) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2009
Can, brewed in Vietnam. Pours a pale ugly yellow with scant fizzy head that dissipates fast. Smells like building materials, cement, tiles, and particle board with a mild unripe pear gloss on top. Medium level of carbonation. Not too gassy, not too sticky. The flavors are bland but has some fruity character and the pretense of hops. The aftertaste is unfortunately acrid. It wants to be a pils but fails.

Oakes (19409) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 27, 2009
Brewed under license by the Phu Yen Beverage Company in Vietnam. Skillfully hunted in Nha Trang. Lovely pale straw colour with no head. When I poured it, it smelled like apple juice but that blew off to reveal grains, maybe some sourness, and mustiness of a non-happy, non-lambic type. Taste of mineral water mixed with post-teethbrushing apple juice. Finishes sticky and with paint-like, gluey notes. Yum.
