Pours a clear, pale golden straw color with visible carbonation and a one finger, frothy white head that quickly settles into a lasting ring.  Streaks of soapy lacing left behind.

Bland aroma with a subtle crisp hop presence along with grass, straw, pale malt grain and corn.  The adjuncts aren't as offensive as others in the style, light or otherwise.  Still pretty bland/boring.

Light body with a crisp hop presence that is immediately countered by an unpleasant, lingering metallic adjunct character.  Some crisp, grassy hop flavor but it's killed off by hints of metal, corn and rice.  The adjuncts realy overpower what could be a decent tasting light lager.  The pale malts and hops are obliterated by the offensive lingering flavors.

We did a blind taste test with this beer against five other light american lagers to objectively determine which one is best. The beers were Coors Light, Bud Light, Miller Light, Natural Light, and Pabst Blue Ribbon. You can check it out here:

just as the saying goes you get what you pay for , and im not talking about the consumer the big bud has spent little and put little into this beer , no hops taste no barley taste and thats what you get it could be so much more ,but why bother it sells and so lets get to the bottom line . most consumers today are getting a corn product with an abv content.and less sweet than sum of those corn syrup mixes out there ,but little hops and little hopes that this beer will change for the better . thanks mass market cor-piarets for ruining american lager. but that said it will still get u a dui. oh and if this beer aint made from corn well please let me no what GMO it is .thanks
