Piss water. It also gives me really bad gas.

One of the best light beers out there. People are going to hack at it for not being full of flavor, but that's not what this beer was meant for.

As stated in my Bud Light and Coors Light reviews, I did a side by side by side review of the American "Big Three" light beers and how anyone can say Miller Lite (or Coors Light for that matter) is the best of the three is beyond me. Miller Lite essentially tastes like cornflake water. Coors Light isn't bad compared to Miller Lite, but Bud Light wins hands down with the "Big Three" as it has the most malt and hops flavor. That doesn't mean Bud Light is the best, Heineken and Amstel are the kings of the light beer style, but Miller is definitely the worst from my perspective so far.

As average as they come but still the best of the three major American lights (Coors, Bud, Miller)

Bland, watery beer of the lowest common denominator.

For what it is, and compared to other macro lagers, id give this a much higher score. If you want a cheap party beer, this is it.

Wow, just a terrible beer. I enjoyed Bud and Coors far more than this one. Here goes:

A: Piss-yellow. No head or lacing. Surprisingly, VERY LITTLE carbonation, which was the only good point of Bud. and Coors in terms of appearance.

S: Corn. Tons of corn. While I smelled some barley and hops in Bud. and Coors, this one just has corn. Terrible.

T: Tons of corn. That's it.

F: Very little carbonation for an AAL. Makes the whole experience rather bland.

O: Will not have again. Much rather have Bud, Coors or even Corona.

4/2/15 (Draft - Finley Dunnes Chicago) - Pale pour, no noticeable aroma. Minimal taste and feel, smooth and clean taste and feel.

Just a very average beer. Not as bad as many mass produced light lagers on the market, but still nothing I would buy on my own.

Make this short a sweet. It's a typically light beer, meaning it is easy to drink and refreshing but there is nothing exceptional about it. It's a good easy summer drinker, and it's decent as far as many beers of this style go, but exceptional it is not.

Not a bad beer but hey, you get what you pay for. Better than Bud and Coors.

This is not a great beer, but it's the best of the light macros. Way better than Coors or Bud. This is the only light beer that I can truly enjoy casually drinking besides Sam Adams Light.
