Average macro looking pour with little aroma. Huge ***WHITE*** head dies immediately but leaves a bit of lacing on the glass. I disagree with those that say this has a lot of carbonation. An initial foamy head is not the same as nucleation point carbonation. This has a flat, almost dry consistency.
I would rate this the same as the average macro, except it does have a good bitterness in the background. This lifts the score quite a bit. Not great, but alright. I like the retro looking cans, and $4.99 for a six pack of pints at Breeze Thru Wine & Spirits (Wauwatosa, WI) is pretty good. Went well with a Jimmy Johns sandwich, probably goes great with a ball park hot dog slathered in mustard.
Surprised I’ve never officially logged a rate for this one. Clear golden pour with white head that dissipates and fades. Medium to bright carbonation on the palate. Light bready malt notes, soft spice and not too much else going on. Nothing super offensive. LinusStick (3473) - Moon Twp, suburb of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 6, 2017
Blah. A boring pale lager almost worse than the macros. Aroma was weak. Stale lager smell. Pour was a clear light gold with a one finger white head. Taste was just like a macro with a little more substance. Not much flavor with a sweet finish. Mild carbonation. Bacchus66 (510) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2017
16oz can at War Mouth. Pours clear pale gold with a foamy white head. Aromas of bread, sweet malt, corn. Flavors are similarly grainy, sweet malt, light hops, yeast. Light bodied with a short sweet finish. Much better than I expected, definitely a step up from the usual macros of the world, especially given the price. Need something to drink on a hot day that you don’t want to think about too much? This might be it. Pintofjoe29 (56) - Dingman Ferry, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 16, 2017
UPDATED: JUL 22, 2017 This stuff is very cheap, like 8 bucks for a 16oz 6pk. But honestly compared to macros of the same style its pretty good! Sweetish pale malt and corn aroma. Clean crisp taste; corn and a slight malt sweetness. A little chalky taste in the back end. Heavier bodied than the average beer of this style. Non offensive. A good session beer Jgwynne66 (1) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - JUL 8, 2017 does not count
Solid American beer. Much better than any of the "usual suspects". Outstanding value for money.

Ar: Pale crackers, some sulfur and corn; herbal, lean hop aroma. Ap: Golden and crystal clear; medium-large white head with moderate retention, leaves a nice cap of streaking foam and some trains of froth on the glass sides. T: Clean crackers with a bit of sulfur up front; the slightest hint of corn, with a bit of sweetness; a little toast; bitterness is medium-low, with a touch of herbal hop flavor; finish is a bit of chalk, more cracker malt, and a clean bitterness. P: Medium-light body with high carbonation; finishes dry. O: A refreshing American pale lager; has some flavor to it, while being overall quite clean and understated; well-made and easy to sit back and drink.

Pours a clear golden color with white head. Aroma is alcohol, and cereal grains. Tastes like corn and cheap alcohol. Dry. Light bodied. Finishes with mostly cereal grains and aluminum ding. freekyp (2328) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 27, 2017
Lightly corny aroma with some graininess. Pours striking golden. Small wispy white head. Clean and crisp. Not offensive. bubblehouse (1540) - louisville, Kentucky, USA - MAY 6, 2017
Drinkable but not really something I would drink on a regular basis. Good for the price. Tejas (1006) - Dallas, Texas, USA - APR 25, 2017
Solid lager. I like the tall boy can. I'd happily drink this if it were sold in Texas.
