Review from notes.

A: Pours a clear golden color, a decent sized, foamy white head forms, but is gone very quickly and leaves behind no lacing.

S: Slightly sweet, a little bit of corn, slight skunk to it.

T: Sweet , grainy malt, some bread and a little lemon, and again a little skunk.

M: Light bodied with moderate carbonation, has a crispness to it for sure.

O: Decent, but not something I would reach for normally. The green bottle doesn't help, but I would give it a shot from the new can.

A: Pale golden color with a thin white head. Some faint lacing.

S: Some grassy hops and pale malts, hints of lemon rind.

T: It's better than a lot of the lagers out there, but it's still just not that good. Faint hops and slightly bready malts along with a faint hint of golden apples.

Appearance is a yellow that is slightly darker than the average American Adjunct Lager with at least two fingers of head (maybe more). There was some retention to the head along with a bit if lacing. The nose is sour apples. The taste is very thin with a bit of nice hop bitterness in the finish.

This strikes me as only one step above being accurately labelled as a Belgian Budweiser.

The last of the beers during a holiday. Found one in the back next to a bud light. So why not review it.

Poured straw yellow, clear throughout with a white foamy head on top. Not much smell to it. A little citrus hop maybe. Light malt hints to. Tough to get much from it.

Surprisingly kind of refreshing. Light hop and malt flavors. A little grainy at the end. Little bitterness to it, which appeals to the masses. Eh, it's a drink.

Would I go out of my way for one, not at all. Would I take it over American adjunct lagers, for sure. Not bad for what it is.
