Clear pale yellow pour with minimal grain aroma. Corn sweetness with some grain for flavor. Not much here. joejames (510) - Jacobus, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 20, 2015
Bottle to shaker glass, pours clear yellow, small quick head. Slight lacing, no retention. Aroma of corn. Taste is skunky sweet. Light bodied, fizzy carbonation, watery mouth feel. Finishes skunky sweet. Tasting notes of corn, grass, skunk, bubblegum and metal. Next............ Bill Becker (2007) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - APR 23, 2015
Pours a clear and bubbly corn colour, 1" of foam.
Has that adjunct Lager smell that’s perfumy with corny vegetable notes.
Corn sweetish flavour with a mild bitterness, usual mouthfeel for the style, which ain’t a bad thing.
Picked up in a mixed 6 pack. Only way to go.. Jabah (559) - Bethesda, Maryland, USA - APR 15, 2015
This is the typical skunky lager, but I find it a bit smoother than most of the american lagers, probably because it’s a pale lager. Also maybe the water slightly better/cleaner. To me, it’s more like the Molson Exta Pale versus Molson Golden...but with a slightly higher ABV%. It’s not a bad bar beer if they only serve domestic and such. crossovert (14134) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JAN 25, 2015
355ml twist off bottle. SEP0814 printed on neck. Drank from the bottle on an outdoor ice rink. Its a crappy ice beer, not as good as the dry versions.

"very similar to Labatt Ice in almost every way. A decent enough session beer. Nothing more, nothing less...I guess it depends what you expect. Ever so slightly recomended for a macrobrew." Dacrza (1070) - Great Meadows, New Jersey, USA - SEP 20, 2014
DATE TASTED: September 12, 2014... GLASSWARE: Baltika stange...OCCASION: O’s double-header sweep... APPEARANCE: shockingly lucid soft yellow body that is thinly bubbly; thick, foamy three-finger head laces sporadically; surprisingly tangible patterns .. AROMA: definite biscuit mats present; hops are slightly corny, a bit funky and gassy? noxious? some light bubblegum too--odd... PALATE: firm, medium-bodied, oily and lingering, though the aftertaste is light and unobtrusive...TASTE: lightly toasted, with some beechwood in the aftertaste; sweet and malty when swished; nondescript otherwise...OVERALL: mellow-not at all the Ice that one expects; at 5.6 ABV, it provides a bit more heft than the usual rote pilsener; sweet, cleansing and soft by its end...like the oversized can, but not much making this experience memorable...

Transfer from BA review on 12-30-12-
Poured from bottle into a pint glass
Appearance- Pours a golden-straw color with a one finger fizzy head. The head of the brew fades quite quickly to leave only minimal lacing.
Smell – The aroma is sweet of corn and has a decent bready smell. Mixed with these aromas is a light caramel as well.
Taste – The taste is quite sweet up front and remains so throughout the taste. It begins with a light bready taste mixed with a strong sweet corn taste. As the taste advances the bready fades with the sweet getting stronger. As the taste sweetened with flavors of caramel and more corn, it became a little cloying. The flavors were never really off, just a little too sweet. In the end a light metallic taste joins the sweetness leaving a sweet and light metal flavor on the tongue.
Mouthfeel –The body of the beer was on the average side in terms of creaminess and carbonation. Both were good for the style and made for a rather easy drinking brew.
Overall- Well nothing really all that fantastic and definitely nothing to go out of your way for. For 50 cents a bottle thought, you can’t expect too much, and it could be good for a party style brew I suppose.

It has a light golden color with very good clarity and lots of carbonation. The head builds up tall and foamy and it is just off white in color. It fades nearly as fast as it forms leaving behind little to lace. The aroma is simple and clean with a mild cereal grain character. Its flavor is similar to Molson Canadian but a little stronger. The favor is somewhat sweet with a cereal grain malty body offset by a light grassy hop presence. It finish quickly and cleanly, a little bit dry, with some of the light hops bitterness. The texture is smooth but with good carbonation and a medium body.

Hmmmm...ha, just found an old after hockey beer. Here’s my take.
This was always poured into a pint glass.
The appearance was a super light yellow to almost golden color with a rapidly dissipating white foamy/bubbly head. The lacing was mainly not really there.
The smell had that typical cooked corn/rice thing going on.
The taste was mostly just sweet through the previously mentioned flavors.
The palate, well, that was pretty light for the most part and it showed a fairly decent sessionable quality about it.
Overall, well, its an AAL, what does one expect? Me, hmmm...not bad, I’d have again depending upon what else was served.
