As far as mass produced american lagers go this one is probably a little better than the others. It is almost transparent, smells of nothing, tastes of nothing with a slight hop taste that last for about 1 second (this is it's edge), the mouthfeel is ok but the beer is too carbonated to be very drinkable. Good to get a keg of for all your friends who don't like beer when you have a party.

Pours an extra clear light straw. Thin and soapy head with poor retention and scarce lacing. Very light grain aroma and a whisper of grassy hops. The flavor is too light even for the style, watered down grain adjunct and a hint of spicy hops in the aftertaste. The high carbonation and light body produce a smooth but boring mouthfeel and the ultra light flavor leaves a clean but bland finish. Very easy to drink; but substituting drinkability for flavor doesn't score any points with me.

Poured from a 12 oz. can into a pilsner glass.

Appearance: Actually doesn't look half bad. Pours a very pale straw color with a thick white head that dissipates relatively slowly and leaves decent lacing.

Smell: What little smell there is stinks of grain and adjuncts.

Taste: Has a sickly sweet taste of grain. Has almost no hop character to it at all. I honestly don't know how Miller gets off claiming that this is "triple hop brewed." Leaves a funny metallic aftertaste in your mouth.

Mouthfeel: You might as well be drinking carbonated water. I could see this being refreshing on a hot day but that's about it.

Drinkability: This is by far my least favorite of the big three lite beers. I got this beer for free and I could never see myself paying a cent for it. Absolutely worthless...

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.

Light golden color with excellent clarity. A fingernail thin layer of white head rests on top. Brussels lacing. Aroma is strongly of corn,but I get a bit of faint bittering hops. Mouth is very thin and highly quaffable. I get corn and some mild bittering hops in the flavor.
