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.

2.55/5  rDev +18.1%
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?

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a BrewDog cervoise glass.

A: Perfectly clear yellow. Nice stark white head.

S: Lagery sweet, but not oppressively so.

T/M: You know, this isn't bad. This is kind of good. It's too sweet, to be sure. But it's real cold, it's quite refreshing, it's...flavorful. By far the best of the BMCs. I don't know about all this triple-hopped propaganda, but it DOES have a hop-like bite at the end. I would drink this. I am drinking this, and I'll finish it, and I'll (mostly kinda sorta) like it.

O: An average beer all things considered. Not just average for the big beers, but average for any pils of any stripe.

Had plenty of this over the years. It's my favorite from BMC, but that's not saying much.

A: Pale, straw yellow. Little to no head, little retention.

S: Skunked. Corn, cereals, malts, virtually no hops. Not appealing.

T: Better than the small. More malts and pilsner character than other brews of this type. Light and less watery than Bud and Coors.

M: Crisp, fresh, available anywhere. Not a bad mouthfeel, especially during the summer.

Not a good beer, but the best of the worst.

I have LITERALLY drank a 1,000,000 of these in my Lifetime, give or take 100,000...so obviously I DON'T hate it....in fact, I have to admit, since I am NOT and NEVER will be a "Beer Snob", that I actually kind of LIKE the taste. But as my pallet has "MATURED" and as my Income has Grown...I have drifted away from this affordable and handy can of Lite Beer and moved on Bigger, Bolder and Better things... .Today I would rather enjoy a couple of Quality IPA's or Lagers because of the Kick/Higher ABV (because they don't FILL my bladder with water and make me have too Pee ALL night) AND for the taste. Having said that...I will NEVER EVER forget my First LOVE and on a HOT summer afternoon filled with sweat and yard work I will definitely still crank some AC/DC or on the Boom Box and enjoy "SEVERAL" of these cold, refreshing, CANS of Goodness :)
