Poured from a 12oz bottle into a US tumbler pint glass.

A: The beer is a light yellow color, with a thin white head that fades very quickly and leaves a very thin lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains adjuncts, light caramelized malts, and a very faint touch of hops.

T: The taste starts out bready from a thin malt character and adjuncts. Then some light malt sweetness comes in. The hops presence is extremely mild. There doesn’t seem to me much balance only because there isn’t much in the beer to balance out. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: A little crisp and not very smooth, light body, medium-to-high carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Not flavorful at all, goes down easily and not too filling since there isn’t much to the beer, very mild kick, not the best representation of style, even for a light beer this one isn’t very good.

This beer is unavailable in my home province of Alberta, but I had a bunch of bottles of this on my trip to Las Vegas. Casino Royale had bottles of this swill for $1, which in Alberta is absolutely unheard of even for the worst beer. Our hotel was only a short walk from Casino Royale, so my friends and I took part in this offer several times.

This beer is pretty awful. I had one and immediately went back to regular Michelob. Water doesn't begin to describe it. No, No, no.
