Everyone has had this, even those who don't remember doing so. It's a beer for those who don't like beer for those who think they like beer. It's a beer for people who don't know what the "appearance" or "smell" is really like because they don't pour it into a cup because it costs too much money to buy a plastic cup.

This goes down easy, and there's no denying that. It has a metallic taste, and the hops and malt are there but are concealed by adjuncts with names that I cannot pronounce. Better than most of the macro light lagers, this is mostly water with a bit of fake beer flavor to make you think you're drinking a beer. If you're someone who advocates for beer pong to be a professional sport, you probably like that. Anyway, again, it's not as bad as some of the light adjunct lagers out there.

Go a half-day without drinking water and your urine will be darker than this, and probably taste a little better too.

Serving type: on-tap
