This the usual light brewski, same as the rest ... one of the better light beers out there for sure if you are a stickiler to styles. Light bodied, thin lace and minimal head retention. Lots of corn in the aroma and flavor, finishes pretty damn dry. More or less a sad excuse for beer.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Presentation: 24oz large can (No. 13) slapped with lots of witty marketing jive, and a wide mouth opening. No freshness date.

Appearance: Very pale yellow in colour with a fine wispy head of carbonation.

Smell: Clean, semi-floral to the nose with hints of grain.

Taste: Light graininess, with hints of grain husk and sweetness. The tight carbonation mingles with a slight steely flavour, to produce some sharpness and mouth appeal. The hops come across lemony, with the slightest of tea-like characteristics. As the brew warms, notes of dimethyl sulfide (cooked corn) become noticeable. Finishes mostly clean with a metallic residual flavour in the back of the mouth and tongue.

Notes: As far as lite beers go, it's not horrible, but it is still a lite beer ... why bother drinking this on a normal basis?

Why the hate, haters? When I want to sit down and drink 11 cans of tasteless corporate america-juice, this swill gets sessioned and sessioned HARD. No hangover, no headache. Just hours of upright drunken delightfulness.

8-31-14. Can. Plastic cup.

A: Pours a 1/8" fizzy head which dissipates to nothing. Ample, abundant carbonation. Clear.

S: Beer. Clean, grainy, bittering hop aroma is very mild. Something spicy.

T: Dry arrival yields to slightly sweet on mid-palate; very little flavor, but what is there is not unpleasant . Crackery. Corny. Seltzer water.

M: Whoa, carbonation! Very light bodied. Feels like seltzer water, too.

O: Pretty decent lawnmower beer. Good for when you just want "a beer" but want to neither think about it, nor get intoxicated (work social functions). For flavor buy something else; for what it is, it's okay.

This is my go to beer when I’m out partying and not looking to be a beer snob. Miller Lite is what I grew up on. I actually like the smell of it. No real tasting notes to say other than what you would already know. Just an easy drinking beer to have in the clubs.
