This was about the only beer on my cruise ship that I hadn't reviewed yet, so although it's not something I would normally spend five bucks on, I had to review it. I tried this brew in the Schooner Bar...my favorite bar on the Enchantment of the Seas.
A - Clear, light yellow, dull with a decent but short lived one finger head and some soptty lacing. A swirl brought the head back to a finger.
S - Gritty and macro-lagery adjunct-laden nose. Peppery acrid sweat-like hops. Smells alot like Heineken. Pretty nasty aroma really.
T - Very faintly peppery with alot af saaz characteristics. The flavor is very weak, but shat I can taste is sour, funky, acrid, and peppery. This is not at all pleasant.
M - Medium bodied for a light lager, but still quite watery. Highly carbonated with an absolutely clean finish which in this case is a blessing.
D - Pretty nasty stuff. I haven't tried the full flavored Amstel, but I won't touch this light crap ever again.

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.
