A: Pours a crystal clear medium yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and moderate amounts of golden yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy white head that reduces a medium sized patch of medium thick film covering about half the surface of the beer and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of adjunct grainy malts with just a hint of corn as well.

T: Upfront there is a light to moderate flavor of grainy malts with a light amount of corn adjunct sweetness. That sweetness is quickly neutralized by a light flavor of grassy hops which impart a light amount of bitterness.

M: Light bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly watery.

O: Slightly better than the mass produced light beers from the big breweries in the USA but not by all that much. Not something I would get with any amount of regularity.

It's not what I would call a "good" beer exactly, but as inexpensive light beers go, it's perfectly acceptable.

Do not believe the commercials. This tastes nothing like the commercials say. This is a slight metalic taste, and it does not come close to the Traditional.
