3.05/5  rDev +7.4%

bought a 12 oz at world market in lansing, michigan. ($1.49)
pours a light straw with a nice white head that falls into a thin sheet.
the aroma is slightly malty, bit of corn, very light and clean.
the flavor is malty but it could have a little more, hop flavor but not to strong, mineriality.
this beer is what i would expect from a classic american pilsner.

9.99 for a case of 24 bottles. That got my attention, as did the warning on the top of the case - "Enjoy Sechs responsibly". Ha. I like my beer to have sexual innuendos plastered on the case. Poured out to a light yellow color with a big bubbly foamy head that was short lived. Slight odor of hops and malts were noted. Flavor was that of your typical light beer. Corn, malt and hops were noted, and this beer had a thirst quenching quality that I have not found in any other beer that you can get for 2.50 a sixer. Nothing amazing, but for the price, this brew is very drinkable. Good session light beer in it's truest form. Worth a try.

$2.50 a six pack

That's what all light beer should cost. And I suppose this is about as good as light beer can taste.

Very aromatic with stemmy green stem notes alongside toasted corn. I'm drinking this too warm so I don't miss anything. The flavors are highly transparent and include an adequate balance of sweetness, bitterness and acidity. White flour bisquick biscuits flavors provide powdery, chalky tannins and sweet lemon fruits. The finish is quick, tangy and dry.

Light beer drinkers should have this on hand.

1.9/5  rDev -33.1%

Pours like any other fizzy, yellow beer, but with more GIMMICK!
Smells slightly maltier than other adjunct lagers, but not much else.
Taste is pretty damn corny, with a residual ass flavor.
Sufficiently carbonated, but thinner than water.
I can't deny that despite the residual ass, this beer is pretty easy drinkin'.
