MacBoost (1847) - Victor, New York, USA - DEC 5, 2014
"Genny Red Eye" it’s called here. Another prototypical pale lager. Low boost. Has the genesee house character of heavy metallic notes and off tastes of metal and dirt. Horrific. Fizzy yellow pour, high carb, low body, low taste. Terrible.

Sweet corn aroma with a whisper of malt in the background. Clear pale yellow body with a frisky head that does linger for a while. Hard to grasp flavor cause it fades quick. I sense a trace of creamy malt with creamy but lively mouth feel. Leaves you with clean finish like it was hardly there to begin with. Need a cheap beer for chugging, frat parties, girl(or guy) dumped you or any other occasion taste is an after thought than this is the one. Not bad tasting just don’t expect a lot.

"possibly nostalgia is causing me to rate this bottle of beer, but many were put down playing softball or baseball in upstate NY, and it wasn’t too bad in the summer heat. not really a "good" beer, but i wasn’t as much of a snob then as i am now."

UPDATED: JUL 31, 2014 Poured a chilled 1 into a 12 oz. beer mug from a 355 ml can; color of a very light gold; minimal layer of head; sparse effervescence; kinda bland tasting, to me; overall, however, one of the liquor establishments i visit had a 30 pack that @ like forty 4 pennies a can; a solid, inexpensive new york state of mind brew. as an aside, Rochester had one of the most best jazz music stations that one could listen to during very late night (and thanks to AM skip) in mid-america, during that last century.

Eructoblaster (4103) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 30, 2014
Bottle - 355ml. Bland, pale blond body with heavy carbonation and an instantly fading white bubbly head. Weak malty/hoppy aroma with corny hints. Its thin taste carries some metallic and rotten grass notes. Finish is non-existent. Useless.

No aroma whatsoever! Kinda resembles a beer in appearance - has a soft white head that lasts for more than a minute. The taste isn’t off putting but there just isn’t anything going on. It almost has a beer feel on the palate. W/ all that being said, it’s still a piss pour beer!

Another after hockey beer. Reviewed from notes. With this one, I’ve mainly only ever had this out of the can, but there were a couple times I was inquisitive enough to sport several home to see what they looked like and that has always been a pint glass. The appearance was a clear yellow color with no head ever. A vast array of rapidly rising carbonated bubbles were seen rising. The smell was basically nothing. I’ve never gotten anything from this. The taste was metallic and somewhat corn sweet. There’s a metallic aftertaste with no finish. The palate, it sat exceptionally light. Overall, well, I don’t drink this anymore and I’ll leave it at that.

Poured from a can. Thin white head, with a clear golden appearance. Taste is clean and refreshing. Reminds me of an average lager.

BA transfer - Poured from bottle into pint glass Appearance - A light straw color with a white head that faded faster then the pour. Smell - Not much odor at all. A little bit of malt, but other then that very little Taste - It actually had more flavor then expected. While not having a lot of hop flavor, could taste some decent maltiness and some giving way to a corn sorta sweetness in the end. Mouthfeel - A good level of carbonation for the style, but a little bit thin on the viscosity. Overall - Average for a standard american lager. At only ~$8 for a 12 pack it is worth the price. A good beer for tailgating and massive parties where you don’t know and don’t care to know most of the people there.

This one poured a straw yellow with white head. Aroma was of sweet corn and light metal. Flavor was more sweet corn, not off flavors really but not good.
