3.68/5 rDev +52.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5
Appearance: Pours with a crystal clear golden body and a white head. Some retention of foam and some bubbly can be seen.
Smell: Whoa! Never stopped to smell this stuff.. skunky, maybe some vague malt wiffs.
Taste/Mouthfeel: Starts with maltiness that's not sweet at all. The hops seem a bit weak with a short finish, but there's almost no aftertaste as a result.
Drinkability: High. A beer for people who don't really like beer? Hey, say what you want about Amstel Light, I'd rather have one of these at a bar without craft brews than most of the other corporate products out there.
Serving type: bottle

330 ml can served cold into a glass.
Appearance- fairly rich golden color, with a nice helping of two and a half fingers of head. This dissipates quickly however. Significant amount of bubbles in the see through beer.
Smell - slightly metallic, and other than that some mild adjunct aromas especially corn and nothing else to speak of. Fortunately nothing off putting either.
Taste- very bland, reminiscent of tonic water with a few adjuncts in there. Bland even by light beer standards. However nothing weird tasting that would give this an even lower score.
Mouthfeel - moderately high carbonation, dry finish in the mouth. Works well with the fizzy water flavor.
Overall - a little more flavor and this could be considered a pretty decent light beer, unfortunately this is extremely bland and water will quench the thirst better. Fortunately enough, there's nothing awful about it either meaning, it serves it's purpose well enough.
