Cloudy, pale yellow appearance with lots of foamy head that slowly settles down leaving no lacing. Smell consists of corn, lots of sugar and a hint of booze. Not the first impressions of a quality beer.
Taste consists of corn, bread, lots of sweetness and booze. Has some grain and slightly medicinal. Surprisingly, the taste is very light overall but seems very unbalanced. Light bodied with low carbonation. Aftertaste is a weird dry, grainy taste.
Overall, seeing "Minhas" and "Strong" I thought I was going to be blown away with a sugary cough syrup taste. This isn't to bad for a stronger Adjunct Lager mainly because its bad qualities are hard to taste. I'd recommend this for shotgunning.

710ml 'Monster' can. Don't quite get the football lacing imagery on the label.
This beer pours a clear medium golden colour, with a ton of dense foamy off-white head, which leaves some actual fish cracker image (huh) lace around the glass as it slowly (again, huh) abates. It smells of sweet grainy (pastry-like, almost) malt, corn mash mostly (ok, not pastry-like), and surprisingly zingy medicinal leafy hops. The taste is sweet bready malt, corn and grain awkwardly joined, for no one's gain, a subtle saccharine booziness, and that weird floral essence that I've come to associate with Minhas' products, some bad, some just not quite so bad. The carbonation is rather sedate, the body medium weight only through a sugary, cloying end run (see what I did there), and smooth only to those with a crazy sweet tooth. It finishes sweet, the creeping unholy bready malt mostly pushing all else out.
Weird-ass American pastime associations aside, this beer is equally strange in its manifestation - less skank than expected, and more malt, even if that malt doesn't exactly warrant a gold star. Still a bit too cloying for outright enjoyment; maybe mix some lowered expectations into your next tailgate party?
