12 oz. Brown Bottle. Twist Off. Born on Date. Well at least it's fresh.

A: Pours as clear as water with a faint pale yellow tint. A small ugly white
head forms and turns to nothing before the pour is finished. I didn't expect
any lacing, but did get a little watery lacing run down the side of the glass.

S: Almost nothing here, besides the sweet cereal grains.

T/M: Tastes like carbonated water with the remote inclusion of alcohol.
Dry and crisp and actually very easy to drink. Not sure if any malts were used
or any hops as I can barely even identify them in the taste. The dry sweet grains
dominate and the finish is again dry and pretty clean.

O: One of the worst light lagers I've ever had. Only good for drinking games or
for the person who actually likes bad beer. I've written too much.

I don't get all the hate for the BMC's on this site. Did everyone start out drinking craft? I know I didn't and I can also say I'm not, nor will I ever be too good for a Bud. I feel there is always a time and a place for it. If I know I'm going to drink all day, like tailgating at a Texans game, I'm going to bust out the Bud rather than an IPA or stout. I'm not even going to break down this review and tell you color, taste, ect. because you should already know what a light lager tastes like. In my opinion this site is more about learning craft/micro brews that you possibly cant get or find so you read about them. This beer is too easily accessible, you want to know what what it tastes like, go buy one.

Figured I'd put this into the database, it's gonna get ugly. Pint.

A: Clear yellow, no head, fizzes like soda and is bubbly. No lacing.

S: Can't really smell anything, grass, grains, corn?, that's about it.

T: Bleh, something you take a few sips then pour on the lawn or down the toilet, watery, light, tastes grassy, rice, corn, but just barely, tastes mostly like nothing.

M: No balance at all, no flavor, too much carbonation

O: Yeah, like everyone here knows, it's pretty bad, there's worse, much worse, but this is pretty close to the bottle of the well. I normally refuse this, just not me.
