Bottle with born on date.
Pours a yellow to almost clear liquid with a head that diminished so fast that I wish i woud have shook the bottle just to get a head. Smell like any other light macro beer, not much to it. Smell of corn and a hint of barley.

The taste is not really even there. Small malt flavor, big corn/rice flavor. No hops even noticed. Like drinking beer flavored gatorade.

I know I'm not supposed to slam a beer, but I have to say one thing. I drank hard liquor for years, because my friends and family always had Bud Light or some other Light Macro, these were the beers that I was first introduced to. Because of this, I did not really like beer until my mid twenties, when I was first introduced to Sam Adams(A macro that USA can be proud of). Then I realized that there were other beers out there that tasted like real beer. I can't believe that I hear people always saying that they prefer Bud light, but can't drink Coors Light, or Miller Light etc.... This makes me laugh, because they all suck!!!
