24 oz. can poured into a mug. I paid $2 for the can. Woo!
Appearance: A vigorous pour produced a big, fluffy, 3-finger head of bone-white foam which died down over time to a cap of white and left occasional spots of lacing. The body is a familiar straw golden color with evident carbonation bubbles rising to the top of the glass. Doesn't look half bad for a macro lager.
Smell: About normal for a beer of this type. Earthy corn husks blend with a little bit of fruity sweetness from the malt and some very subtle earthy hops. This beer has a little more power behind the smell than most other adjunct lagers I've tried and is a little cleaner overall. Pretty average "beer smell," but this one has a bit more presence. There's still this weird metallic funk lingering in the background, though.
Taste: Clean, refreshing sweetness from the corn and hints of malt is what comes out at first, and this is balanced by a very clean and earthy bite of hops in the finish. Not too bad, overall. I'm actually kind of impressed by this beer. Fairly balanced overall, and a little more robust in flavor than many of the other run-of-the-mill macros, especially light beers. Very easy to drink, although it gets a little harder as the beer warms and more sweetness emerges. Virtually no aftertaste, very clean and dry.
Mouthfeel: Again, very clean and crisp. This beer lends itself to being refreshing. There's virtually nothing in the finish as far as flavor goes. The body is not too thin or watery and is much less carbonated than other big name lagers out there. Nothing to write home about, but nothing bad either. Pretty standard across the board.
Drinkability: I could see this as a go-to for cheap beer. Certainly not something I would want to drink on a regular basis, but for what it is, it's not bad. This will become one of my "fall back" beers besides PBR. Refreshing, crisp, and dirt cheap. Sounds like a plan to me. Probably one of the best bets if you absolutely have to pick a beer from the "Big Three."

Tallboy can reviewed over the weekend. I am pretty surprised it took this long to get this review in but kind of happy I waited. Full notes taken while consuming.
A- Poured from the tallboy can to two pint glasses, finally getting to the champagne of beers. Crystal clear, really!, uber pale golden body with a foamy white cap. Head rises to about two fingers and has poor to fair retention. Foamy ring leaves spotty lace and some patches.
S- Really, really not much going on here. Slight pale lager yeast and malts but pretty much have to search for it, beyond clean (in all aspects). Maybe a hint of fruit.
T- Opens up and some more going on here but really not a ton. Rice and pale cracked grains come to mind with a tiny hint of lager ester fruits. Bread and popcorn is about how I sum it up.
MF- Lightest possible body with a high carbonation attacking the taste buds. Texture is about the opposite of creamy, watery and fizzy.
I don't really know anymore. Somehow this doesn't taste like complete shit to me. I was more bothered by this when I was about 20-21 but now I find lager yeast hints. Leaves you wishing for more and lacks anything all that enjoyable.

This is the only AAL that I can say I enjoy. While there is nothing special about it, there is also nothing offensive. For me, the mouthfeel is smooth and almost creamy, which is what makes this one for me. It's also cheaper than its bud, coors, miller counterparts.
