Not too good. Definitely one of the cheapest beers in the store. And I am not opposed to paying less.

Taste is overly sweet. There is something a little nasty on the finish. I'm not sure what.

I won't be choosing this one again.

I like the can design. The carbonation level seems OK.

It's not awful, I guess. It's just not really good.

I went looking for some cheap beer because money is tight this weekend. I found this, 12.99 for a case of loose cans. At first I thought it was a typo, but it was right. It came out to 13.90 with tax. I saw this beer on an episode of "The Office", so I assumed it wasn't god-awful. and it isn't. It is close, though.
Appearance, I poured some in a glass, just to see for the review. Very light.
Smell- almost non-existent. All I smell is aluminum from the can and a faint Budweiser smell.
taste- Again, almost non-existent. Not bad, not good. Reminiscent of Bud Light or Coors Light, and this isn't a Light Beer. I can't imagine how watery the Light version is.
Mouthfeel- Flat and dull. Swallow fast and keep it cold. Definitely could use more carbonation.
Overall-You get what you pay for. 14 bucks a case, I was expecting worse. If you're in a pinch this is a lot better than Natural Ice, Old Milwaukee, or any of the other cheap and awful beers. If you can afford better, though, then get better.
