I have never in my beer-swilling life ever had an MGD before. Wow. I've seen it plenty of times - acquaintances of acquaintances bringing it to parties, etc., but I can't recall ever cracking open one of those clear bottles. First time for everything, I suppose, now at the oft-changing bar across the street from my abode.

This 355ml bottle pours a clear, pale golden yellow colour, with one finger of fizzy, weakly bubbly dirty white head, which leaves a little soap scum lace around the glass as it quickly falls away.

It smells mildly of doughy, corny pale malt, a bit of soft yeast, and lightly skunky leafy, earthy hops. The taste is big on that mealy corn sweetness, uncooked, yeasty bread, and kind of grassy (the crab variety), um, hops, I suppose. Not a lot of the expected skunk comes through, small miracles indeed.

The carbonation is fairly sedate, and unobtrusive, the body definitely on the light side, weight-wise, and smooth, sure, in a tongue-scraping, clammy manner. It finishes mostly sweet, the corn cereal malt duly persisting, with only a mildly skunky taint in offset.

For some reason, possibly due to my surroundings and distractions, this went down fairly well, lack of overt off-flavours and all. So, I guess the lesson here is: don't pay too much attention, and you can drink this, even enjoyably! Sums up the typical BMC marketing ethos, I'd say.

Perhaps a little darker than most adjunct lagers this poured with a fizzy weak head of thin fleeting bubbles.

The nose is bit off putting with a corn and stale malt.

The flavor is more corn adjuncts and less barley but I did not detect the strong metallic flavor that seems ubiquitous in adjuncts.

The feel is highly carbonated and a bit slick with a detracting thinness.

I didn't expect much and got what I expected, a macro brewed adjunct.
