Ther's not much to say about this brew ...
It had a light yellow color, minimal head and very light taste. I can't seem to put my finger on it (or tastebuds as it were) but something was missing. I drank three to try to be fair and give the benefit of the doubt. They seemed to get harder to enjoy. I often like to try many different types of beers, but this one was not one of my better choices, in my opinion.

12 oz brown disposable longneck. Poured into my SA pint glass, the beer is a very light yellow with a quickly collapsing bone white head. You could hear the carbonation when poured into the glass.

The aroma is of corn and floral hops. Actually smells ok and very fresh.

The taste is slightly sweet with just a bit of residual bitterness on the backend. More grains & floral notes as you work through the beer. In-offensive with no off or odd tastes.

The mouth is slightly thin, but the aggressive carbonation moves this up to average. Not a bad light lager. Slight step-up from BMC and would be refreshing on a hot day.

Bottle from Albertson’s in Tehachapi, CA. This beer is a very pale (practically colorless) golden color with a thin white head that disappears quickly. Minimal lacing. Light hops and corn in the nose. Light-bodied with mild grassy hops and malt flavors, along with more corn. The finish is short and lightly hoppy. Uninteresting, even for a Light.

Grabbed a bottle of this from a friend's sixer just to find out what this was like. On to the beer:

Poured into a shaker pint glass, it body is a very pale color. The foamy white head on top of it is big and retains extremely well. Rusty grains and a touch of honey make up the aroma. I was surprised, but there is a little bit of taste in this light brew. Fruity, bready, and honey in the taste, somewhat balanced by a lighter astringency. The beer is mildly carbonated, giving the beer a fuller feeling without actually being it. The aftertaste does no favors for the whole experience though, as it feels like I let a popsicle stick sit on my tongue.

Notes: Passable stuff, but it's not inspiring me to buy a sixer for myself. Not bad for a light beer though.

Appearance is a light golden with a very thin crisp head. Aroma is very clean and light, not much to it. Taste has a light sweetness from the malt and a slight citrus metallic flavor. mouthfeel is light with a good amount of cabonation for a crisp finish. Not great, but not bad, a good one to sip on a warm day with summer foods.

I can tell that this is a light beer just by looking at it. Ultra clear very pale yellow colored beer a small and momentary white head.

The smell is a little sweet with a mild but present Nobles hop aroma. A little bit fruity and mildly floral with a little grassy scent.

The taste begins sweet and malty with a trace of oxidation in the taste. Nobel hops in the flavor but it isn't much and is mostly grassy in taste. Sweeter than most light beers I wonder how low in carbohydrates it really is.

The mouthfeel is light, very light in the same class as Michelob Ultra.

Not all that drinkable even for the beer type. This is too sweet for a light lager and it doesn't have enough hops to balance that. Buy Coors Light instead if you must.

Pours a clear light golden with an quickly dissipating effervescent head. The beer leaves little lace. The aroma is alcohol, light citrus - not great, nor bad. Tastes is hoppy with a lemony finish/aftertaste. It has a light, bubbly mouthfeel - almost too light (read cheap swill beer). However, for a cookout this is an ok, drinkable beer that would pair well with summer food.

12oz bottle with cool paintings of old timey guys doing crazy things with bi-planes.

Appearance-Pours a very bright white head that lasts for a fleeting second. Colro is a clear yellow with little bubbling.

Smell- Astringent, good, but very metallic and sweat socky.

Taste- Crisp, watery plae, and crystal malts. A little adjuncty too. Some corn maybe??

Mouthfeel- Decent carbonation gives the palate an alright effervescence. Definetly refreshing after a long day o' work. I could easily down a sixer of these to get buzzin.
