Got drawn in by the can design aah marketing. Anyways regular gold pour puffy white head. Nose is light citrus and peppercorn. Tastes of light peppery tones, lemon, herbal, grassy hops. Decent palate. It is what it is and does fine enough with that. pkbites (947) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 31, 2017
Glass bottle. Pale yellow pour with white head. Grainy nose. Grainy palate with lots of hops. Very dry finish. Not great, but it definitely has a classic taste reminiscent of later days. Quite similar to the likes of Drewrys or Narragansett. Your grandpa probably would have loved this stuff. DuffMan (10436) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 24, 2017
On tap @ Radio Maria and from a bottle at an Irish pub in Champagne. Clear pale gold with a lasting white head that leaves a ring of lace. Clean grains with a kiss of grassy hops. Nice enough. Scipio (1085) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2017
Pours a clear and thin looking pale yellow with a thin white head. The aroma is faint, with minor amounts of grassy hops, grain, and yeast. The taste is slightly bitter. It isn’t as subtle as the nose. Much more grass come through here, as well as bread, honey, and corn. The downside to this is there is a fairly heavy metallic flavor found in here. That metallic flavor dominates the aftertaste. Light in body, slick in texture, and average in carbonation. My mediocre grade to this one actually might be generous.

Tallboy can from The Malt Shoppe, 9/18/16. Slightly hazy golden, large foamy tan head, decent retention. Aroma of pale malt, floral hops, mild toast. The taste is toasted palt malt, nutty notes, corn, herbal hops bordering on grassy, hints of apricot-like fruits. Medium bodied, crisp.

Poured from the bottle a clear golden color with a white head. Aroma is grassy, and slightly sweet corn. Taste is grainy/grass, with a very slight bitterness. Light bodied and easy to drink. kaser (6312) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - NOV 20, 2016
Golden draft pour with white head. Corn and hops. Just a standard lager but better than a Budweiser wxman (1820) - O’Fallon, Illinois, USA - NOV 14, 2016
Pours a clear pale gold with a decent head at first, but with large bubbles (not usually a good sign). Aroma is boiled corn and grass. Taste is sweet pale malt, some bread dough and mild hop bitterness. Clean, crisp and refreshing. Pleasantly surprised. muzzlehatch (4959) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 12, 2016
12 ounce bottle from Woodman’s in Rockford, IL, served straight out the fridge and into a Coors Banquet glass. Very pale yellow, decent amount of lasting creamy white head, some lacing...nose offers a bit of corn sugar, faint floral hops, clean but rather weak at first; after a few minutes the malt graininess shows up...in the body, lightly to moderately sweet, again very clean and here the corn presence is muted, really good malt extraction and balance with some noticeable soft hop bitterness at the finish...body is quite full for the style, by which I mean not at all watery, light and smooth, with very natural-feeling moderate carbonation. For what it is, outstanding - and I love the retro label. tmoreau (4374) - Lombard, Illinois, USA - AUG 2, 2016
Still recall the presence of a few bottles of CV mixed in with other local favorites as they took up a good deal of space on the bottom shelf of the family "ice box". Glad to see the return of a classic as we shared a 16 oz. can at Lunar Brewing Co., and poured it to snifters, displaying a hazed light gold, nearly straw color, with a modest layer of white head foam that reduced to a thin but persistent ring, light film, and spots of lacing. The nose was light lemon, soft grain, and a fleeting hint of DMS. Light bodied, but not thin or watery, with good carbonation, and low, earthy bitterness. A decent hydrator/post lawn mowing refresher.
