Pours out an extremely clear morning urine yellow color. The head retention is actually quite impressive as is the amount of carbonation. However I don't think all those bubbles will add anything positive to the mouthfeel. The smell is actually less solvent and offensive as I've found their other beers but far from good. What I can smell is a barely perceptible bready smell, and other weird cereal grain smells. No hop presence at all. Wow, tastes like, your average mindless American beer. It's even more marginal than i thought it would be. It's not even bad enough to suck! How disappointing! Some stale bread flavors, old soggy grains, and hmm, can't pickup the corn. The corn adjuncts must have been genetic bred out of the beer and covered up by those other faint flavors I am describing. Mouthfeel is kind of prickly but again nothing too offensive. I think Miller has developed some space age beer flavor now that they are just adding to their beers rather than really brewing anything. How do you think they pulled of MGD 64? Carbonated water and beer flavor concentrate, right out of the can....

Pours a pale yellow, crystal clear with a white soapy head. Smells lightly of some cereal grains. The flavor is light grainy character. Very litte if any hop profile. Mouthfeel is watery. Overall not something I would spend money on, but light and non-offensive and easy to drink.

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.

From a 12 fl. oz. bottle marked FEB0612-B05040047. Sampled on January 25, 2012. I would prefer this in a can but I also prefer not to buy a lot of it so I could only find a 6 pack in bottles. Pretty average looking American lager yellow pour with a burst of white fizzy head then nothing. Aroma is grain, cereal, and bread. The body is thin. The taste also rather bready with a clean enough hop finish for the American Adjunct style. Burger beer.
