The very first sip has a nice, distinct wheat flavor. After that it’s barely a notch above water. About the only thing this is good for is when you’re outside grilling on a hot day, not worried about taste, and you want to have a small buzz with your friends. Also, it’s cheap. I avoid it unless it’s the only thing available. Sometimes I still avoid it.

DATE TASTED: February 8, 2014... GLASSWARE: 22 oz. pilsner...OCCASION: watching the Olympics and feeling patriotic enough to review a true American product... APPEARANCE: lackluster pale gold body with reasonably lively effervescence; thin white head; tentacle smears of lacing... AROMA: tin, corn, and sweet syrup--slightly candied and demonstratively sweet... PALATE: light, as advertised--cold, crisp, watery presence, with slight carbonation ...TASTE: nearly tasteless--what does rear up its head isn't ugly, just metallic, beefy and rinsing... OVERALL: New Year's resolution: trying to spend less time babbling about subpar macros in these annuls; simple fact is, this beer's ubiquity cannot justify its smirk-inducing, blasé product that masquerades its way through billion-dollar ad campaigns; remember the penguin ads? THIS BEER is the thing In the house I am most nervous about finding....
