look: 1.5 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 2 | overall: 1.5

A: A very pale yellow with a small soapy head. Lots of bubbles.

S: Default beer smell... Wet grass and grain. Not pleasant at all.

T: Like a watered down Budweiser. It still has the hop bite and bitterness that makes me hate Budweiser when compared to Coors or Miller.

M: Very watery but the nice carbonation and crisp clean feel is refreshing.

O: I would take a Michelob Ultra over this anyday. I find the flavor offensive compared to other light beers. If all you want is to get drunk there are crappier beers.

Straight out of a plastic bottle at a Pawsox game. My other choice was Heineken..so I decided to alternate. Kicked it off with this and obviously knew what to expect. Watery as hell, and the flavor that is there is somewhat funky/skunky but otherwise inoffensive. I drank two of these without even thinking, as I was chatting it up with some co-workers and eating typical luxury suite food - chicken fingers, hot dogs, etc.

I will end this rambling review with some advice - there are better light beers out there but you will have to spend a little more. Give Sam Adams Light a shot. Cisco also has a good one - Sankaty Light but they are even pricier. Worth it though.
