Decent hop aroma. Very thin looking and thin mouthfeel. Good malt flavor with a hint of hops. Great beer on a hot day and for multiple sessions.

Out of all the big macro beers, this is easily my least favorite. Least amount of flavor, and what flavor there is is pretty terrible. The colder you drink this the better.

If you're looking for a beer that's super "bongable", buy Bud Light. The taste and appearance are light and acidic. I don't recommend this unless you're looking to reminisce from your college days.

Only thing good to me is carbonation regardless of everything else or any beer actually. Just like Budweiser with a whole lot of water.

I rated this in comparison to other light beers. Obviously it tastes like piss water compared to stouts and pale ales. But as far as the pretty new light beers go, this one isn't the worst.

Rating to style. You think it tastes like water? What AAL/light lager doesn't? And if you think it tastes like piss I have no perspective because that is a flavor profile I'm not familiar with.

I thought maybe drinking this by the pool in the hot Florida sun might make this beer a little bit tolerable. (The choice was this or Corona without a lime (if it had been w/lime I would have opted for it)). I was wrong. I honestly felt like I wanted to puke after finishing my 16 Oz blue aluminum bottle. If I never drink another one of these for the rest of my life, I will definitely be cool with that.

It looks like beer, but it tastes like liquid cardboard. I have no idea why so many people choose this over the many better (and cheaper) alternatives.

Sampled back on St. Patrick's Day on 3/17/15. but like most of us, who hasn't drank this? LOL! Come to find out that I have NEVER done a review on this one so here it goes. Anyway, came in a neat 'Limited Edition' 16 ounce green 'St. Patrick's Day' aluminum bottle with shamrocks. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a vintage Anhesuer-Busch pislner glass.

Brew pours a pale straw-yellow in color with a pretty thin white cap. Some sheets of spotty lacing was seen when sipped. The aroma is really nothing to mention, just some light grassy grains. The taste is pretty much the same. Very watered down with not much taste. Ends with a slight metallic taste which might or might not be from the aluminum bottle. Light-bodied with above average carbonation. Why I drank some of these over the years before I discovered some good brews and brew-styles is beyond me. Overall. why bother to drink this, no matter what fancy/cool bottle they use. This is a below average brew in my opinion.

It's a very flavorless beer that you straight up shouldn't drink.
