From the 24 fl. oz. can AUG0910-CO8011731. I sampled it on August 29, 2010 so I don't know if this can is expired or freshly brewed.The pour is full of bubbly carbonation with a well-filtered pale yellow and a quick lasting fizzy white head the disappears with a poof after a few seconds. Unlike many Miller-brewed macros this one is clearly missing the metallic, grain alcohol scent. In fact I found the aroma to be a mildly enticing mashed maltiness full of fresh-cut hay and grapefruit. The taste also has a better than expected maltiness with a slight hoppiness around the edges. I rate it a bit better than the current average.

I bought a 24 pack of this for $13 at the local liquor store just to try it out. I've drank it warm and cold, straight from the can, and from my beer glass.
It's a golden yellow color, similar to what you'd expect from most cheap American macrobreweries. Brief high head that settles down really quickly, leaving just a circle of thin foam around the edge of the glass. Minimal lacing. I wish there would have been more. Smell is similar to most cheap beers, sweetness, corn, and malty wheat, but I thought it was stronger and more defined than I usually expect from cheap beers.
Taste was overwhelmingly metallic(probably because of the can) water, corn, malt, and kinda a weird understaste that reminded me of bubblegum. A sweet short-lasting aftertaste. The mouthfeel was ok. Not too impressive. It was fairly smooth, which I liked.
As far as cheap beers go, this is my favorite. I don't expect much for $.50/can, and this one surpassed my expectations. It's got the strongest most defined flavor IMHO, a higher alcohol content than many of the other cheap beers, so it's great for a party, but also really easy drinking for just a day relaxing.
