This is my new go-to beer. And I'm not even a light beer fan.
Average appearance with a soapy, bright white head that dissipates at a slow speed. The brew is a super filtered straw color.
The aroma smells no different than any other macro lager; some grain, corn, and that typical beer smell.
For the taste, it goes down very, very smoothly. It's smooth. You've got some sweet corn adjunct (but it doesn't have a cheap or stale taste to it), lots of carbonated and clean water, and then at the end - and slightly in the middle, but not by much - there is a tiny undercurrent of hops. However, this is a light beer, so whatever hops are there will just be dry and bitter-tasting, no floral or citrus notes, obviously.
This is one of the more flavorful light beers. However, if you want the fullest taste from a light beer, Coors Light has the most by a long shot.
It doesn't beat Coors Light, but it is good. I like Miller Lite a lot. It has no off-putting aromas or taste notes. I just simply can't understand all the bad ratings.
All in all, this is a light beer. Beer gurus shouldn't be reviewing it, because it's not meant to taste like fruit, chocolate, or pine trees. It's a light beer in high demand by the masses, which prevents it from being composed of high level ingredients. So what? Most food you eat is that way.

Had to bad mouth beer from my home state but I have to. I'd like to consider price vs tastes got "cheap" beers but it's not even that cheap. Little head. Does not go down smooth at all. Could not drink fast. Real light appearance. Hard to drink ice cold, as it warms even worse. Many, MANY beers that I'd suggest from Wisconsin first. The smell honestly makes it hard to drink to.
