The beer was served in a pint glass. I had the time to enjoy 4 pints. The first one came with about a 2 finger head. The second and third came without and the fourth came with about a 1 finger head.

Appearance: A pale golden yellow with good carbonation. The head disappeared after about 2 minutes and left very little lacing.

Smell: Very faint scent of hops but not much else.

Taste: Again, very faint taste of hops and not much else. A hint of sweetness and really no bitterness at all.

Mouthfeel: Kind of watery while smooth. No lingering. It just passes on through.

Overall: It is a light beer and truly has all the characteristics of the style so you should not look for more than that. The biggest and best thing I noted was that after 4 pints there was no bloated feeling. That is a big plus. It is not the best light beer I have ever had but I would have it again.

Is this beer for drinking or putting out fires when camping. Its hard to tell if someone can actually appreciate this as a beer however if you are in college than this is good for the price. Very light watery taste and color. Quite carbonated and goes down rather smooth. Don't mind occasionally having 6-12 of these if I have a long continuous day of drinking. Ie tailgating or college day parties.

12 oz can. Tried it at friend’s Super Bowl party. Pours pale straw with a white head. Aroma of rotten eggs is much more pronounced than in regular Budweiser . Soda like body. There is not much taste here, somewhat like sweet carbonated water. It went down the sink drain nicely.
