The beer appeared a very pale yellow with a small, light, and fluffy head that disappeared in the blink of an eye, with no part of the head retained and no lacing.
The beer gave off a light corn-ish aroma. Not much else.
The taste was actually a little better than expected, but less than average. Heavier on the malt than most of the same style, this provided for a little sweetness. Not much else.
The beer was pretty light. The carbonation was a bit too high, but honestly one of the better beer for this style. I might choose this one if given the choice over most BMC beers.

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.
