It pours a pale straw yellow, crisp looking and crystal clear. A bright white head evolves quickly to a couple fingers, then settles out promptly. There's a little bonus lacing as it drains.
The aroma is weak and thin, so vague that it's difficult to nail any one element down. The best I can do is call it vegetal, and pretty much standard macro fare smell-wise.
The flavor stands out a bit more, with a sweet grainy character bearing a veritable note of corn. There is a light grassiness along with a blunt metallic tang, likely the effects of whatever hops are here. The finish is a mellow dry bitterness. Overall, it's not world-class, but it's not unpleasant either.
Very light bodied, it has just enough consistency to carry the flavor in, then let it drain away.
So it won't help you, and it won't hurt you. And for a macro, that's not a bad deal. I'm not going to justify the average taste or the non-existent specific smell, but I'll tell you that this beer is drinkable because it's not heavy, it's crisp and refreshing, and goes down smooth. With nothing to overtly offend, I'm not at all upset that this is all my neighbor had in his fridge. Of course, it's now my turn to open his eyes to what's in mine...

32oz can into a pilsner
A - An unimpressive, yet crystal clear straw yellow. Quickly dissipating tall head. This beer laces all the way up a 20oz pilsner glass.
S - Smells beerish and sweet.
T - Oh wow. Never noticed when I was in my 20s, but YUP, corn. A bit of pilsner malt. Sweet.
M - Very ebullient and thick sweetness.
O - If I've been mowing on Sunday (good beer is only had in liquor stores here and they aren't open on Sunday) this is my go-to. It's really not horrible, but there's just no comparison to a good helles. If someone told me there were hops used in this beer, I may or may not believe them.
