Straight from the can on the Metro North, heading into NYC after a great weekend at HC, which included C&C Day, 2011. Clear, fizzy yellow pour with a loose, white head (I’m guessing). Corn and light metal aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, notes of corn and butter, a little hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Light sugar, corn and butter finish. Drinkable stuff, though not the best beer I’ve found along the trail. DiarmaidBHK (5113) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 9, 2011
Not a lot of flavor with this one either. Lots of carbonation. Finishes clean pretty boring. RONCOD (247) - Uledi, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 23, 2011
Clear yellow with a thick white head. Slight metallic taste in what flavor there was. Good beer for grass cutting at best. cmonster (1000) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAR 22, 2011
Can served in a flare pilsner. Pours very clear, very fizzy, pale straw. Medium-large white head has good retention, but stinks to high heaven. Rotten corn. Very light, watery body. Lighter than water actually, and less flavorful. How is that possible? Not even much fizz. No finish. Why. Palidor19 (3189) - Brandon, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2011
for a light beer, it does have some character that makes it worth while if you wat something light and cheep. it has the usual flavor of corn malts, adjuncts and low hops but it is not to negative on any one aspect. decent for what it is.

Can. Clear yellow with medium head. Aroma is faint, grain and some chemical or other. Light body but somehow a little fuller than I would have expected. Some carbonation. Taste is watery corn. Can be easily gulped down but hard to see the point of doing so. DarkElf (3062) - La Jolla, California, USA - JAN 11, 2011
29-Oct-10 (12-oz bottle, Bottled on 01-Dec09: BevMo in Solana Beach, CA) I just don’t understand the point of even making an alcoholic beverage like this. Why would anyone even bother to drink something like this? It pours a crystal-clear body that is golden-straw in color, and a quarter of an inch of white head that settles rapidly to a partial, filmy sheen. The beer smells and tastes like metal, cardboard, corn sugar, and bad box cereal. Thin and very watery on the palate with medium, but sharp carbonation and a dry finish. Pretty awful.

Pour from a 24 oz can. Very pale yellow, clear, with a puffy white head. LIght corny aroma. Not much taste - a litte corn sweet and and little pervading sourness with vegetal overtones. Not offensive. ChadPolenz (1827) - Lakeland, Florida, USA - NOV 2, 2010
Drank from a 24oz can I got at the supermarket for only $1!!Bif (2259) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - OCT 16, 2010
Appearance: classic pale lager appearance: BRIGHT yellow color, extremely clear, very bubbly. Surprisingly large, foamy, sudsy head (evaporates almost completely and leaves no lacing)
Aroma: Smells like a Molson or Labatt macro lager. Some kind of chemical funk to it. Not a skunkiness like Heineken, though.
Taste: Starts out very neutral with almost no taste at all. Obviously, very watery and bland with perhaps a touch of corn sweetness found in adjunct macro light lagers like this. As it warms it becomes more and more sour with a metallic finish. It eventually becomes undrinkable (so drink it fast!)
Mouthfeel: for such a light beer it’s a little thicker than I’d expect. Quite tepid body - so it doesn’t tear up your tongue with carbonation.
Drinkability: Initially very sluggable, but as it warms and becomes more sour it’s a challenge to drink. And at 3.6% ABV it’s the kind of beer you can slam can after can.
Overall: Hey for only $1 it wasn’t much of a gamble but I definitely wouldn’t buy it again. Stick with Genny Cream Ale.
22oz Can- Pours a pale golden color with a big foamy head that fades to nice lacing. Has a very mild grain aroma, sort of musty. Prety bland taste, very light sweet grain flavor. Light body, crisp and somewhat refreshing.
Goes down smooth & easy. Typical low budget lawnmower beer.
