Served in a 5 ounce glass.

Appearance - ...They just don't get any lighter than this. Its the most pale yellow color you can think of for a beer.

Smell - There's a smell? I honestly tried a good few times. Whatever smell there is, its extremely muted.

Taste - It hits the palate and you get some light...kinda toasty malt taste. And then its gone. It literally loses the impact of its flavor when it hits your tongue and your brain processes the taste. It has no body to it. Its not bitter at least. Nor is it...bad tasting. Its just very lightly flavored alcohol water.

Mouthfeel - Its very clean. Can't complain.

Overall - ...well if you want to get drunk but you don't like the taste of beer, this can literally go down in one swift chug and you probably wouldn't bat an eye at it. It IS better than cheap, mass-produced light beers, which have a bit of an aftertaste for me, but the flavor is just so dull that I can't really justify a keg or a pitcher of this being bought unless you were on a diet or something. Not recommended.

On-tap at BJ's Brea

A: The pour is a clear straw color with a small white head that is not retained all that well.

S: Certainly a corn-laden aroma, but overall pretty decent. Sweet grain flavors are present and a bit of a toasted note to it. Some light grassy hop notes are there, much to my surprise.

T: Fairly light, but a decent level of sweetness that is certainly helped along by some corn and I would say rice, too. A moderate grain and bread flavor with a hint of floral hops and a touch of bitterness.

M: Light in body, certainly, with a moderate to high level of carbonation.

O: For a light lager, this was pretty good. I would much rather have this than Bud Light, Coors Light, etc.
