I can't believe I'm actually reviewing this beer, much less drinking it... oh the sanity!

A: Pours a clear yellow color... literally almost clear when light is put up to it. Yields a fingers worth of white head that fizzles to nothing, but not too quickly. Certainly lasts for longer than other craft brews I've had, abv aside

S: Some light cereal grains and some hops. Despite the 'triple hopping,' it is definitely not the hoppiest beer I've smelled... by far

T: Pretty much the same as the smell. Light cereal malts hit first, followed by a light hop flavor and buttery bread

M: Light bodied with full carbonation. Stereotypical light lager

O: For a light lager, it's middle of the road. I'd still take Coors or Bud over this, with numerous other non-BMC lights as well. I've definitely had worse (some still made by Miller), and I wouldn't cast this out of the picture if I was just choosing a light lager to drink. That said, I still won't be caught dead rating this beer any higher than a D...

Light beer, what's the point? It seems to be the in thing now adays. The quest for the fewest calories and even less taste. Miller Lite has held its own for quite a while now but if you are using it in a cup you are throwing ping pong balls into then you might as well save the good beer for drinking. I am not being a snob, there is nothing wrong with Miller High Life, especially for making beer brats but if you are going to drink a beer you may as well drink a full calorie brew and hold that nine month pregnant beer belly high!

Appearance: pours a very pale, pathetic yellow color. Yes, I poured it into a glass because I want to do it right!

Smell: thoughts of the cereal Kix comes to mind soaked in celery juice.

Taste: faint malts and more cereal grains, over cooked corn and maybe one hop leaf drowning in a pool of seltzer water.

Sure, it's easy drinking if you want to drink 37 beers before you feel anything. Maybe this is like those electric cigarettes smokers use to ween themselves. This beer lets alcoholics go through the motion without totally falling off the wagon.

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 24 oz can into pint glass

Appearance - Avery straw yellow color with a big head upon pouring that dissipated rather quickly.

Smell - Smells of sweet malt of mostly corn malt.

Taste - Very light as the style would suggest. It has a slight rice and corn malt flavor, actually quite appropriate for its style.

Mouthfeel - Very light with not much viscosity or vigor.

Overall - Not a beer for drinking on its own,but does have its place in the beer world. It is higher rated in its "light" style category. Good for after a run or when wanting something extremely light with a meal (if meal is really heavy). While I wouldn't drink to enjoy a beer, it has a place when either enjoying food or when wanting a brew to cool oneself down.
