I found this single 12oz can in a " reduced for quick sale" basket at the Foremost Liquor store in Glendale Heights, IL. At just 75¢ a can, I decided this would be a good time to try it. Born on date is on the bottom of the can. Mine said June 18, 2010, so at least it's fairly fresh.

The beer poured a clear, pale yellow color very close to water. It only made a ½finger of white head that disappeared in under 30 seconds without leaving any lace whatsoeverl.

The only smell you get is sweet corn syrup.

Not much in the flavor department either, but at least it wasn't awful. A light mix of malt and corn is all that's in here. I couldn't find any hops at all.

They kept it light and kept it from being overly sweet. and the heavy carbonation helped make it crisp and refreshing.

It's not gonna win any awards for flavor, but it goes down easy and it's definitely not drain pour. It's on the sweet side, but not bad for a cheap, light beer.

If you're not going to session Busch Light on a lazy afternoon, or during a relatively inexpensive cookout, I don't see why you'd drink it at all. This is one of the most basic and unremarkable beers I've yet to have, with a taste that's not revolting but not even half as satisfying as it could be. It's the kind of beer I'd buy if I was looking to have beer at the lowest possible cost, not particularly caring whether or not it was unique, but more along the lines of it being something to drink. The purpose of this beer is to be a cheap, economy beer with low alcohol content, meaning you can still work a six pack into your already tight budget. If that's what you want, you know who you are, but others have no reason to waste their time on beer flavored water.
