of the macro light beers this one is better than most. I don't like this style, but it is fine with a fish fry or pizza.

I feel kind of bad for rating this beer so high (almost a 3), but it's really not that bad. Probably because I've had 3 IPAs...

Really a great refresher at the end of the day. This beer is easy to drink, and doesn't come with a heavy price tag. That said there's not much going on in the way of flavors, or aromas. Definitely get a yeast and off corn taste to it, and it comes with a short finish without much of a lingering aftertaste. One of my personal go to's, and as an added bonus is only 96 calories per serving, which makes this a perfect backyard bbq brew.

C'mon. How can something with ZERO flavor have bad flavor?

From the Bros description for Light Lager category: "very low in malt flavor with a light and dry body. The hop character is low and should only balance with no signs of flavor or aroma."

Look: clear, light golden color; thin white head dissipates quickly and with no lacing
Smell: faint cooked vegetal aroma, like mixed vegetables boiling on the stove top
Taste: watery for sure; mildly sweet malt/cereal graininess
Feel: crisp mouthfeel; finishes clean rather than dry and no hop essence detected in nose, taste or finish

Overall: not my favorite lite beer (that would be Sam Adams Light) but this does hit most of the beer's category marks. Points deducted a bit since finish isn't dry, but maybe I'm spoiled by all the IPA/DIPA's I've consumed in the recent past.

Not bad but not good. I taste a lot of oats but not in a good way. It has no complexities and tastes just like weird flavored water. Couldn't tell you anything it tastes or smells like because it tastes that bad.

This beer seems slimy and oddly sweet to me. I'd take it over Milwaukee's Best, but that's about all I can say for it.

Not a lot of flavor, very watery. When it is room temperature it tastes skunked.

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.
