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.

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.

A - Typical clear yellow pee color. Head is almost no existent so I didn't catch the consistency or the color. Lacing is something to be desired. This one looks well carbonated. Average.

S - Metal mixed with some faint grains. No hops at all. They probably used a shit ton of rice for a nice clean almost no scent at all smell.

T - Taste like lemon flavored sparkling water. Honestly. One of the cleanest tasting America Adjunct Lagers Ive had to date. It couldn't be less flavorful.

M - Clean and crisp enough. That's whats expected with sparking water though. Right?

O - Just drink water. You'll save yourself the calories. This one isn't worth a try my friends.

A: Pours a pale, clear yellow with a fizzy, quickly receding white head.

S: Mild aromas of grassy, lemony hops, grain husks, and minerals are present on the nose.

T: Notes of grass, herbs, straw, grain husks, minerals, lemon, cooked vegetables, and biscuits wash across the palate. The finish is fleeting with mineral, lemon, and grain flavors.

M: Very light-bodied and dry. Carbonation is extremely spritzy. Feels kind of gassy.

O: This is a typical American adjunct lager. Far from great, but also not entirely unpalatable if served cold. Avoid this one unless you simply must have a beer and there are no better choices at hand.
