Looks great, but not a lot of taste but very drinkable and pretty much everyone will drink it.

very upset that I was brain washed by this "beer" company into believing that this was the only choice of beer. Rice is not a beer ingredient.

Tastes like fizzy water with a hint of malt and skunk.

its a diet beer, for the style it is not great. It is unbalanced, you can taste the alcohol, I believe that derives from the adjuncts used.

This is truly the gold standard of fizzy American light lager.

Not a great style, but definitely a great example of the style.

Used a Pilsner glass. Pours a light golden color with super thick head that thins to a quarter inch. Smells like chemicals and corn. Goes down really smooth, but dry. Not much flavor what so ever. For a light beer it's not too bad.
