That's right bitches - daddy's living the high life. The Champagne of Beers gets a moment alone with papa. Let's see what she's made of.

As with any macro review, I dump it straight in the middle of the glass, daring it to make a head. This sudsy sumbitch has a greater depth of head than fluid. Chunky soap suds. Completely clear, gold tinted beer. Bubbles cling to the glass. Champagney. Heh heh.

Smell is faint corn and aluminum. Not quite disgusting but pushing the damn boundary for sure. What the hell am I doing?

Taste is very weak, but as such, manages to be non-offensive. Which is a helluva lot more than I can say for MGD (yuck). Slight taste of corn.

Y'know, it's kinda smooth. Not great but far from harsh. Almost decent, increasing drinkability from zero to, uh, more than zero. Oh for the recession to end...

Overall: marginal

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

Apperance- Nice light golden coloring with a thin white head which disappears quickly.

Smell- Smells of grain and not much else

Taste- Tastes of grain and has a light metal taste to it. It also has a corn or earthy flavor to it.

Mouthfeel- Thin and very carbonated.

Drinkability- Not a horrible beer. This would be a nice beer to drink after having done strenuos work of some type such as mowing the lawn. They do a good job marketing this beer to a young, hip crowd similar to Pabst.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5

A- Pours a clear golden head with minimal head,
S- Not really much to the smell of this one, a bit of corn and malt but that is stretching it.
T- I don't taste much except maybe some corn and a little bit of malt if that. This is made to be drank and not tasted.
M- Very light bodied and highly carbonated, I do find myself enjoying the carbonation, bascially the only thing keeps me drinking this beer.
D- A macro session beer that I drink a lot of when I have nothing else to drink, literally, like in certain parts of Iowa and Oklahoma.

12 oz bottle from a pack I bought for cooking brats.

A - Pours an ugly clear bright yellow with a short little head. Lacing is average

S - Skunky, sweet corn and a tiny touch of hop. Not a lot here.

T - Very very light malt and sweetcorn. A little bit bready, which is nice. Really it's just a carbonated corn water, and the only reason it scores a C is that the American Adjunct Lager is a shit style and this is slightly less shitty than most of them.

M - Body is thin as water. Average carbonation.

D - Very easy to down, which I suppose is the best quality of this beer. It's a fairly typical adjunct, but better than all the Lite crap.

Appearance wise, a very average yellow beer. Smell is almost non existant, not to impressive at first glance.

The taste is light and malty. A bit bitter with good hops. Not very complicated but not overly watered down. Actually very refreshing, would be ideal to drink on a hot day.

One of it's biggest flaws is a long lasting dry aftertaste. Not really a beer to savor, more of a beer to chug down.

Poured out of a shiny gold 24oz. can. The beer was gold but rather pale in comparison. Fluffy white head left a surprising amount of lacing. "The champagne of beers" is really not too bad for the style. There's a wet grass that accompanies the adjunct sweetness. The grassy scent seems to show itself slightly in the taste. There's also a very slight hint of wheat. I have to admit that this would be my macro of choice at the current time.
