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

A- Golden straw color with a one finger head which faded fast.

S- Slight ester with some malty/fruity smells.

T- It as though the taste of a good beer is locked up buried underwater. Sadly enough this is as good as bmc light beers get. Although watered down as hell, you tell that it at least trys to ressemble beer.

M- Very thin and bubbly.

D- Good for beer pong I guess.

I'd give it a gold medal in the light macro swill category

12oz can, Pilsener glass, stamped 'AUG0111' on the bottom.

Oh, just look at the brilliant clarity! This is the predictable light yellow gold beer, sterilely clear, with a short-lived white fizz on top. A small ring of white remains.

The smell is metallic with hints of corn. A bit of dirty dishwater, or steamed cabbage, or dms keeps things interesting, but not in a good way.

The flavor, if it can be called that, is not quite so bad as the smell. Crispness is what does it, dryness. Overall it's rather flavorless, with some gritty green hop and corn.

It's dry and fizzy as one would expect.

Miller Lite is the BMC I'd never had before coming to Arkansas. It's very popular here and much less so in California. It's as bad as any other light beer and I only drink it at parties.

look: 2.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

A-Clear yellow with a billowy head that dissipates down to a tiny layer of foam that actually lasts for a decent amount of time.

S-Very musty/grainy with no hop presence.

T-Malty, grains are very prominent throughout. Very watery with no real hop presence despite being triple hopped.

M-Thin, carbonated, and watery.

D-It would be easy to down a few of these in a sitting due to the lack of flavor, its light body, and low alcohol content.

The only good thing I can say about this beer is that it does have more beer flavor than other light beers.

A light pour got me a finger and a half of very active almost-white head over a clear pale straw body. This head up and vanished in less than 30 seconds. The beer is obviously heavily carbonated as there is a strong cluster of bubbles clinging to a lot of the glass and a serious rush to the surface. Lacing? Thees beer don't need no steenkin' lacing.

Mmmmm, corn. This beer smells of sweet corn, the weakest, palest possible malt and hops that are past their prime.

The beginning is an overly sweet blend of corn and pale malt. For a beer that says "Triple hops brewed" on the can, this is the opposite of what I, or any other hophead would ever be interested in, as there is no hop flavor detected.

Whoa is that baby light bodied! I might say that it were overly carbonated, but that seems to be what they're going for. It is refreshing, washes down anything, and wouldn't necessarily be refused on a hot summers day... unless you offer me a DIPA. Or an IPA. Or a decent pale ale.

It's hard to believe that just a few short years ago, my beer appreciation began here, and didn't end much further.

On draught at Tokyo Grill Victoria TX in 22oz mug for 2 bucks. Pours a pale yellow with minimal white head. Light aroma of corn, grass. Taste same as aroma. Palate is light body, moderate carbonation. Finish is light grass, and corn. Overall not much aroma or flavor to speak of, very bland and boring could not finish it. It was the one of the better choices available on the menu.

You know, I had low hopes for this beer going in. It was the pitcher special, so who could go wrong with cheap pitchers? Let me tell you, I was pleasantly surprised, it surpassed my current macro expectations.

Pours piss yellow. Smells like skunk, alcohol and wheat. Your basic macro. Tastes like wheat and alcohol, smoother than I expected. Better than Bud should be their slogan. I'd get this again.

Clear light yellow color and lots of carbonation bubbles. The head is quite nice. Seems to stick around the glass for a while. Cooked corns and light lemon hops come out in the aroma. The taste is fairly clean. Grainy taste at first kind of sweet. Semi-dry metallic aftertaste. Light bodied with a pretty good drinkability, because of it's lightness. Better than most light beers but that still doesn't make it good. Next!

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 4 | overall: 2.5

A- A crystal clear yellow with a half finger of lightly whipped head that lingers for longer than expected. No lacing.

S- Light cereal grains, the strongest of which is a corn smell, though not in a horrible way, almost like plain popcorn.

T- As with the smell, mostly a graininess dominated by corn. Well balanced by some bitterness. But there isn't much taste.

M- Very effervescent and light going down. Suits this beer and the style well.

D- It's like drinking water lightly flavored with corn and hops. Not bad tasting, but not really 'tasting' much at all.
