This beer has been insulting my fridge since a friend left me with it. So what the hell review it and get rid of it.
Poured into a pint glass (sorry to sam adams for using a glass with their logo). Poured a white medium bubbled head that vanished in moments. A good amount of bubbles racing to the top of this beer, marginally large. Wow, clear and yes just yellow in color. Perhaps a touch of a golden wheat color, but really this looks light and flavorless. None of the yeast or density one sees in a good german lager or other lagers with character.
The smell is just awful. Sweet corn and alcohol? That honestly sounds way too good. Is it possible that this beer smells of water?
There is malt in this beer that isn’t awful, but the beer finishes with this metallic (this was from a bottle) and alcohol like finishes. I used to think of bud light as flavorless and over carbonated beer. Today this beer has a decent flavor to start that finishes in such an awful and terrible finishes that I truly am baffled why people drink it. This beer is only tolerable on the front of the tongue. Drink quickly (the norm) at the finishes is just painful going down.
I don’t understand the drink ability stuff. This is painful to drink. It is over carbonated, the finishes it terrible, and frankly just why do they make it?
I know this is odd to say, but there is a lot more flavor than people give credit to this beer. It has a decent malt start (for a lager) but it just goes to hell from there. That metallic/alcohol finishes is terrible. 4.5% and it has that kinda awful finish? So how do I score this beer? It is a light lager which I don’t get. It has as many calories as Guinness so I’m not sure what light even means. It isn’t diet as there are calories. It isn’t any more summer weather than something even like their “bud heavy.” Why do people drink this? Ultimately there isn’t anything about this beer that stands up to a good beer. Sure smell is offensive and the over carbonated mess with a lack luster flavor makes this thing completely undrinkable. If I could truly score this correctly I’d need negative numbers to properly explain how awful this over fizzed, vomit inducing smelling, mess works.
