3.53/5  rDev +73%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.5

Poured from 16 ounce can into a nonic pint glass.. Nice 3" head that lasts about 5 minutes and leaves a surprising amount of lace.
Smell grainy some grassy hop aroma.
Taste is pale malt cereal grain and a touch of herbal hop bitterness.
Mouthfeel is thin to medium with plenty of carbonation.
I enjoy an occasional Miller Highlife and this brew reminded me of that beer with a bit more flavor. One of the best beers of this style. Slightly too sweet but not cloying. If Miller would bump the hops a bit this would be really good instead of just alright. Very refreshing for the style.
Date on bottom of can is Aug. 25, 2014. Not sure what the time span is for the best by date.
My guess would be six months so this would be about halfway there.
Edit 7/18/2014. Appearance is really excellent for this beer. I can't think of another AAL that has a better long lasting head and the lacing is rather superb for a beer of this type.

Thos beer was an okay beer for a cheap beer. The taste was not that bad, but it was not the best tasting beer. The aroma was just ok as well. I personally would pick another beer over this one. But that is just me. But for a cheap beer like I said it was just ok.

Purchased from one of the local quick marts.

A: Crystal clear gold with moderate head and retention.

S: Malt, hops, grain and alcohol all in in small quantities.

T: Mild. Same as the smell.

M: Smooth, but a bit flat and watery.

O: A little better than I remember but still in no way good. It's tolerable.
