A: Clear, Pale and Watery. Foamy head.

S: Weak. Kinda corny.

T: Real weak. Why bother? What little taste there is, taste like corn, not beer.

M: Watery. No character at all. Kinda fizzy.

D: Everyone else says that drinkability is the only strong suit in a Domestic Macro. I don't even find this stuff very drinkable. I always end up feeling crummy, especially the next day (do they put laxative in this stuff?).

Overall: Seriously, why bother? I'm not just being mean. If your just trying to get hammered, drink a few shots or something. Maybe drink one of those flavored malt beverages, at least it has some flavor.

What's so special about this beer? It has a Taste Protector LidTM, which I'm pretty sure means that the can is sealed on its top. Pretty impressive shit. I'm digging it.
Poured some into a snifter, some into a tumbler. How is this beer best presented? I can't tell you. It looks pale and watery, barely registering a color. Perfect. Smells like corn, tastes like grains and corn, a little bit of grassy hop. Easy to drink, not particularly enjoyable. At least the entire can is covered in trademarks.

look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear, yellow body with a thin, fizzy, white head.

Smell: Very minor notes of pale malts and yellow corn.

Taste: Faint pale maltiness, a touch of corn, and a light sweetness. Exceptionally mild bitterness. Abrupt, thin finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-high carbonation.

Drinkability: It's fine for what it is, I guess. And so poundable! You can down a pint before you say "I'll meet you at the bottom!" I'll take Remarkably Bland over Questionably Foul-Tasting any damn day of the week.

This is ok for a "light" beer and it's certianly better than some things (for example, the 3 Horses Dutch Lager I just tried), but it is, predictably, not very good.

Pale gold (not straw or the sickly pale colour of Coors), it has a thin, airy white head that promptly avanishes to a thin ring and wisps.

The aroma is perfumy, basic lager, strong corn with some hay and grain, thin but ok.

The taste is minerally, thin grain - corn with light old sweetness, soda water quality, light grass-hay bitterness which is exceedingly faint. It has a sweet corn aftertatse but the character persists and does not degrade.

Out for a chicken wings experience in Idaho Falls, and the 'craft beer' menu on the patio table sure seemed anything but...

This beer appears a clear, pale straw colour, with a thin cap of anemic white head, which leaves a bit of sparse streaked lace around the glass as things are glugged away. It smells faintly of sweet, almost sugary, rice grain, and a bit of dull acetone. The taste is more thin, sweet husky rice, oily, non-warming alcohol, and a bit of spectral skunky hops. The carbonation is moderate, the body thin and watery, the smoothness bang-on for the marketing committee. It finishes clean, a hollow airiness washing away any (albeit mild) remnant of what I just swallowed.

Not bad, it's pretty much spot-on for the style, an acceptable enough accompaniment to the boneless hot wings special, here in 'mehrca...
