2.43/5  rDev +12.5%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

Pours out a straw color with a small white head.

Smell. nothing special at all. typical american macro aroma. just slight malt to it, with some adjunct aromas.

Taste. quite neutral. not all too horrible for what it is. not good though. small malts with a somewhat sweet flavor.i also taste some rice flavors.

Mouthfeel. body is average for what it is. good carbonation.

Overall. I dont like it, and i do not consider it a good beer. but if offered, i wouldnt decline, and i wouldnt say this is worse than bud light or coors light. It is what it is, and it is what it is trying to be

look: 1 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

appearance - Clear yellow , this had no head, no bubbles. Looked flat and it was from a tap.

smell - Just grains here, not much.

taste - Lots of grain taste, and a sweet taste at the end.

mouthfeel - Light body

drinkability - I bought this since it was 1.99 bar special. My next glass was a craft beer.
Nothing was going on for this beer. The look was awful.

16 oz Alum Can poured into pint glass

A: Light yellow, about a finger and a 1/2 head... Surprise it sticks around for the whole session... another surprise some lacing.

S: OK not a lot here little straw, bread and corn. Pretty generic beer smell associated with light American lagers.

T: OK it is a light beer so you are not expecting a lot and this delivers a lot of not much. Pretty flat and corny.

M: Light and crisp... not much more to say.

D: Easy to drink, low ABV.... you can pound away. But not an enjoyable session beer.

Hey it is a light beer what do you want.... Not the light I would go for out of the ones I've had... no favorite yet. Not the best and not the wosrt.

EEEE!! My roomates drink of choice,(pray for her).The beer isn't worth pouring into a glass, but if you do, no head really to speak of. Light color, taste is not so good. Verrry watery mouthfeel. We all know that this beer is obviously marketed for masses. I don't do keg-stands of busch light at college parties for a reason. I don't drink this beer, but to whomever does, don't shun, lets embrace them and convert them to our ways!

From a bottle to a pint glass...
Pours a very pale yellow color, thin white head with some good lacing.
Smell is very light, consists of corn and bread.
Tastes like a watery corn cracker.
Very light bodied, tingly carbonation.
I drank like five of these and it really didn't do anything.

A clear sickly copper, soapy white head was gone after a few blinks, no lacing
S some breadiness and sweetness.
T more sweet breadiness, cheap maltyness.
M heavy carbonation, watery bubbly mouthfeel, bready aftertaste.
O cheap bready sweet throughout as expected. Thanks Kam!

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

Offered free, two at a time, ice cold at a bullpen party at Camden Yards.
Poured into a semi-clear plastic cup. This one had actually a better color and appearance than the Bud that was going around. Faint yellow, with a little bit of carbonation and a slight head.
Aroma of plastic, alien sugar and funk. You know, the smell at the bottom of a keg holder the next morning when the ice has melted and the ugly girls have left the dorm room.
Carbonation was moderate on the tongue. Light sweetness to the malts, with an embarassing absense of anything closely resembling hops.

Again, this would be very useful, during a drought, to water my tomatoes. I also hear it is useful for slugs, how appropriate.

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

Poured a light golden with a small head that dissipated quickly. Small amounts of carbonation can be seen rising.

Not much aroma. Some sweet corn, adjuncts and light citrus at the end.

Taste was not good. Sweet malts and again some very light citrus. Some light bitterness. The biggest taste impression was that it was fake or "off."

Mouthfeel was light, not cleansing.

Overall, this is not drinkable. The bad taste just wouldn't get me to try more. There are better light lagers out there.

2.77/5  rDev +28.2%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance: Clear, medium-light straw with a large, white, foamy head that quickly diminished. Only a little lacing early.

Smell: Very mild lemon and grass… not much else.

Taste: Hay, white bread and corn. A little sweet with a short but pleasantly bitter finish.

Mouthfeel: Thin body, watery texture, lively carbonation

Drinkability: Nothing great but not horrible either. Probably above average for a macro light beer… not that that really means anything.

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

[Appearance]: Very pale straw color, clear, lots of carbonation, soapy head that disappear really quick. Looks like a typical Adjunct Lager.
[Smell]: Roasted corn aroma, hint of skunky.
[Taste]: Corn, maybe some little grainy from the malts, I could detect some slight of bitterness from the hops. Has a weird aftertaste that lingers in my mouth.
[Mouthfeel]: Light bodied, carbonation is pretty strong.
[Drinkability]: I couldn't drink the rest.

I'm surprise they call this a "True Pilsner", more like "True Adjunct Piss".

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2 | overall: 4

Appearance: Very pale yellow color with a fizzy white head.

Smell: Almost smells like a beer.

Taste: Kind of like a beer. This has decent flavor in the light beer world. Nothing really stands out, but the beer is refreshing and consumable.

Mouthfeel: Very light body that leaves me hanging.

Drinkability: Decent brew when the goal is to pound down a bunch of them. Good beer to slam down in the parking lot with the boys after work.
