Came in a pint glass a transparent yellow with a white head.

Didn't really have any smell.

It tasted very light, typical American lager, sweet and corny. A slight step up from some of the more famous brands.

Very aggressively carbonated.

Overall the bar I was in didn't have much choice and I'll take it over bud/bud light any day.

Served in a Gale Sayers shaker pint glass.

Not sure why, but I hear some random SNL skit blaring in the back of my memory when I hear the name of this beer... Anyway, it pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger or so of white froth. The nose (how is this not skunked!?) comprises rice, hard water, and a touch of what may or may not be grass. The taste brings in more of the same, along with the lightest possible addition of wheat, and a mild, almost fruity sweetness, though this is also decidedly light. It's not necessarily bad, but the almost nonexistent nature of the flavors doesn't do this beer many favors. The body is light, with a moderate carbonation and a watery feel. Overall, a sad little beer, one that I wouldn't really hate to drink again, but also one I would never ask for again, either.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a somewhat hazy, pale-yellow color with almost no head.. Has spotted lacing

Smell - Smelled a little skunky at first when I was pouring it.. but it kind of faded. Not getting much in the smell though. Feint citrus, grains, grass, and sweet corn.

Taste - Same as the nose. Citrus, grains, corn, grass, and a slight caramel flavor.

Mouthfeel - Light body, pretty watery.. with high carbonation.

Overall - This isn't a bad beer, it just doesn't have much of a flavor either.. I could definitely drink on this though.

P.S. It progressively becomes more bitter the warmer it gets.
