A - Light yellowy amber, flat looking with no head whatsoever after two seconds of fizzy activity on the surface.
S - Corn, the faintest grassy hops.
T - Plain as can be, typical corn dominated flavour of the big macro lagers. Slightly skunked. Drinkable, just.
M - Thin body, high carbonation.
O - Avoid if you like interesting and flavourful beer.

I tried this beer one time during the summer of 2012 and thought it was an ok to slightly decent beer. It is not a beer that i would have all of the time, but I would probably recommend it to another to try it. The taste was distinct and was very smooth and different from Miller High Life. The process of making a draft beer gives this beer a different characteristic.

Appearance Clear, yellow body with strong carbonation and the typical Puxatawny Phil up and down head.
Smell A light grain aroma, but not a lot. The Bud was a veritable bouquet compared to this nose.
Taste Typical grain with a good amount of sweetness. Definitely sweeter than The King. Its not fruit, though. More like Ju-Ju Bees or Gummi-Bears (not the good Gummi-Bears from Germany; those awful ones that they sell at the movie theaters).
What the heck is going on with the finish here? I cant describe it, but it ruined what little flavor was in the body. I dont know what that is.
Mouthfeel Good carbonation and fairly smooth.
Drinkability Thirty-minutes of prep time in the freezer and canned to keep out the skunk does the trick with this one. That aftertaste though probably took it down a whole point.

This is a crysteal clear, radiently golden beer. It has no head to speak of, but does manage to leave quite a bit of lacing after the pour. Aromas are very light, and of cracked grain. No sickly sweetness to the aroma at all.
For the style, this beer tastes pretty badass. It is refreshingly dry, balanced, and delivers just a splash of fruity hop flavor in the finish. A light but very creamy mouthfeel accentuates these qualities to make this by far my favorite offering from the big 3. It is a very fresh tasting beer with minor, if any, perceptable flaws.

I guess this is drinkable at keg parties but not anywhere else. It poured a clear yellow color with a lightly frothy head that faded after a minute or two. The smell was very sweet and not pleasing at all. The taste was not much better. It was a very sweet taste but a grainy sweetness that got to me after a couple sips. I guess I got used to it after a few sips and it started going down eaiser so I gave it a little bit higher drinkability rating. Overall it is a standard macro that is bland, boring and not worth your time.

not horrable on tap, better than can or bottle. still not by far a good beer but somewhat better than in the bottle. has a flavor to it, not strong but not overly weak either. it was really cheap on tap, so that helps, i guess a fair beer for your value, but i would stick to tap

Blah, definately better out of a bottle by the thinnest of margins.
A: light yellow, quickly disapating head. not really anything special, but it looks like a beer.
S: metal and wet grain. put my nose right in it to get something, not very strong at all and that's likely a very good thing.
T: bland, thin, very little flavor at all. what's there is sweet corn and grains with a metallic aftertaste.
M: like the taste, very thin and watery. combine the two and you get a watery feel with a faint hint of beer taste. perhaps it was the mix with my saliva, but this really froths up in the mouth.
O: it was 32*C (89.6*F) outside at a gathering and these started going down after i ran out of my stock.
Bottom Line: Desperation beer.

Presentation: 12 oz twist-off clear glass long neck bottle, raised glass around the bottom of the neck donning the Miller eagle and “Cold Filtered”. No freshness date.
Appearance: Light straw hue, very clear. Good sticky retention, white lace sticks as much as it can.
Smell: Big husky and cooked cereal grain aroma, the husk is a bit powdery in its astringency.
Taste: Unbelievably extremely smooth and crisp. Moderate body. Thin maltiness bringing mild astringent husk, cracker-like grain and a touch of malt sweetness. All mixed in with the malt is a semi-coarse cereal / adjunct flavour that is somewhere between cooked corn and bran cereal. Hops are all used up and are complacent with just handling the bitterness even though they are quite dull in flavour. Corn grit after taste leaves an odd feeling in the mouth, almost like sucking on a piece of wood.
Notes: This beer would have been ok but the after taste is damaged with an unpleasant dryness. There are other macros that will do a better job of being totally bland to quench your thoughtless thirst.
