So I got the can at Beers of the World. I hope it is a bottle conditioned can because I got a ton of floaties in here. The beer pours a murky golden with the floaties and a thin white head. Sweet yeasty nose of candi sugar and pears. The initial sensation is water, but there is a lot of funky sweetness in it. Spoiled orange juice, white sugar, copper penny and aluminum can. It does have an almost Belgian sweetness to it, but it just tastes clumsy.

Far and away Todd is right...this actually isnt an awful pale lager. OK sure it has no true redeeming qualities, but this is definitely one of the better "staple, corn enduced" beers Ive ever had. Aroma of sweet malt and rice, with a thick soapy head which nearly overflowed but quickly died and left a soapy mess in my glass. Way too carbonated, but other than that not bad. Sweet malty taste with slight rice adjunct in the finish. Dry but not menacingly disgusting finish. Light grassy taste and finish.... definitely nothing Id buy again, but a HELL of a lot better than I could have expected.

12 oz can. Noxious faky sweet corn/spoiled cider nose; hazy amber with a decent head. Bad adjuncty flavor, bitter/sour finish, truly awful.

Golden orange color witha small white head, some cloudiness...resembles a belgian white. Smells clean, light and fruity. Starts lemony with peach and soda water on palate. Not much else, finishes crisply. Tasty beer that far exceeds its metal can pedigree. Purchased in a 12 oz can at Beers of the World in Rochester, NY.

Vinegar and malt for the aroma, grassy. Pours a golden yellow, thin head. Grainy flavours and unpleasant aftertaste. 70s style graphics on the can serve notice to the last time anyone paid attention to this beer.

Pop the can and get a sweet aroma. A closer inspection produces a Belgian yeast-like scent, perhaps Huyghe. Light chill haze. Light gold with a good thick head (Becks 0,3l glass). Taste like artificial sweetner and poor hops. Can best be compared to a non-alcohol beer taste.

Crockett (1115) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - APR 6, 2004
This is the most generic thing I have ever seen. Light gold clear, no head. Sweet pear-like aroma. Corn syrup and rice are the main flavours. Watery and dull. I've been wanting to try this for ages.

UPDATED: MAR 22, 2004 20 oz bottle which doesn't have the rad 60s euro stylin' lable artwork that the cans have. Otherwise, ok lager. Adjuncty but clean, maybe a few hops

You know, its not all that bad. I mean it doesnt taste like much of anything, but it is not skunky and corny and bad. Just has some week malt and rice flavors.
