A solid macro. I split a pitcher with two buddies. For a macro it wasn't bad. There wasn't much head from the pour, but it actually looked like it had a fair about of head in the pitcher, with a very good amount of retention (meaning that if I order a macro). No lace at all. Don't drink and review.

Sampling right now on 5/2/14. Been forever since I had one of these and bought this old 'throw back' logo 16 ounce can about 2 weeks ago for $1.00. Can chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a vintage 1990's Miller Lite football pint glass. made a awesome photo. :)

Pours a straw-yellow in color with a good 1+ finger white fizzy head that settles down to a thin layer on top and sides of the glass. Some spotty lacing is seen. The aroma is of some light grains, nothing else really. The taste is the same that is on the 'watered down' side but goes down easy with no harsh or bitter aftertaste. A classic cheap beer when you don't have much money for a good craft brew. LOL!

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.

Light yellow colored beer with rapidly fading head.This is an easy drinking smooth light beer which goes well with a family bbq or on a football Sunday.It might not taste as good as some of the micros but some days you gotta go back to where you started.

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.

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.

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.
