Not much of an appearance with about a 1" head that quickly disappears. Smells like watered down...water beer. Taste like a normal american pilsner which lacks much flavor or imagination. Really crisp and tastes pretty much how it smells and looks. Let's face it, this is a drinking game beer so leave it for the tailgates or beer pong. Unless of course it's free, then the "free beer" rule applies.

A - It pours with a good inch head forming but dissipates quickly.

S - There's a very slight hint of maltiness and a small amount of hops if it's not super cold.

T - Tastes slightly sweet with just a hint of hops but that is more in the lingering aftertaste than while actually drinking it.

M - It's fairly smooth, but feels more like a fountain soda than a beer. However it does hold its carbonation well throughout the entire beer.

O - When the three light domestics are on special at campus bars, I go with Bud Light but any other day of the week there's not too much for it. It's always refreshing, but nothing to write home about. It's better on draft and when it's not ice cold. Enjoy!
