We all wish for simpler times, when Little Kings 40s were 99 cents, when delivering telephone books was a legitimate excuse for work. Simpler times... when a hangover meant watching Alf, back to back before back to back Cheers episodes... waiting for your employed pals to get off work so you can repeat the last night’s beer guzzling festivities. Yes, this beer reminds me of those simpler times. So does Ballantyne.
If I were homeless (ultimate Simple Times), I’d panhandle outside Trader Joes and trade Joe my daily merits for these inconceivably awful cans of fortified bum juice.
Like Leelee Sobieski below me notes, this is your stereotypical adjunct ale. Catering to a class that favors function over fashion.

The only thing this beer has going for it is a 6%+ alcohol content. That’s all.

Can. Pours a clear yellow with a bubbly white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma has a good amount of sweet grain and corn with a bit of hay underlying. Flavor is similar with corn and sweet grains throughout and a bit of hay backing.

From a can with friends at a swim party. Just a cool relaxing beer when you need to chill. Especially for the price

Pours a half finger of head on a clear straw body.
Aroma is a little cotton candy and caramel.
Taste is fairly sweet, though with a good balance from lemon bitterness.
Texture is softer.
It favors a little sweet, but still nice.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz can, Ann Arbor, MI, USA via Trader Joes. Pale gold. No head. Visible carbonation. Bready aroma. Some faint citrus. Sweet, balanced with honey and light white pepper. Medium finish. Given the price and aim of the beer I’d say it’s great.

Can from Trader Joe’s in Campbell, CA. Aroma is malts, honey, artificial caramels? This is some roof stoof-age and goes fittingly with all things "Pruneyard".

This is your basic bad beer. Basically. No real taste here, I buy it usually because of how cheap it is, $4 a 6-pack. A pale straw color, no head, medium carbonation. No real sweetness to it, because no real taste to it. Very bland. Corn, hay, grass, ground, mulch, rot, nothing to taste.
