This was the only beer I could find at the Dogwood Festival in Atlanta during an 8 hour stopover from Panama to the UK. I dont know why Im bothering to rate this, I couldnt finish it so I gave it someone I was travelling with who doesnt drink beer. He finished it...

UPDATED: MAY 20, 2014 Bottle from the in-laws fridge. Aroma: Mostly sweet cereal, like corn puffs. Hop aroma is minimal, but seems to tend toward grass. Appearance: Very carbonated gold with white head that quickly dissipated. Flavor: Matches the nose; mostly cereal with some faint grass. Palate: light body, slick texture, fizzy carbonation, long finish. Overall: A beer you get from your in-laws fridge.

Bottle. Aroma is all but nonexistent. Light grains, very watery, thin, metallic, bad. Exactly as expected

I thought this was the good stuff in college. But I also ate a lot of ramen noodles.

12 bottle into a pint. Clear, thin golden hue, crisp white divides shine through the appearance. Taste is striaght corn, tangy sweet malt, good carbination though, not that dreadful of a brew. the malt punch packs a good deal of clarity to where this is going, but from there the tread falls short. Bland after taste, no compelling malt bite, substandard overall presence, but so much more intriguing that alot of the macros. Not so bad.....

Pours clear gold with a whipped white head. Corn malt aroma. Sweet malt flavour... Basic...a better than average light. Slightly enhanced rate due to the fact that in my teen years...errr, when I was 21....I drank a truckload of these....Hey! This was premium stuff in the early 80s!

Whats the difference between this and Ultra? Is there really a need for more than one of these awful "beers". ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

12 oz bottle. No need to pour it. No aroma, nothing exciting but smooth and easy to drink.
