This is not a great beer, heck it isn't even a good beer. But it does have a few redeeming qualities: first, it is cheap. Second, it has some alcohol in it and third it can be refreshing on a hot day. Is it chock full of hops and malt. . . . nope. It is a light golden colored water with some alcohol in it. Who should drink this beer? college kids, people on fixed incomes or guys like me. Who occasionally have a need to swill a bunch of beer to "get back to their roots" and relive their youth. LOL other than that, avoid this beer.

I have more of these than I'd like to admit. Pretty much flavored alcohol water. For the money, better than Bud or Miller light. For a long golf day or fantasy football draft, not the worst option.

Oh College. What was I thinking. Seriously this is gods gift to man. What a wonderfully delicious can of golden suds. Never forget your roots. Im pretty sure ive had several thousand of these so you can totally trust my rating.

This is a bad beer. But to me it's like watching Plan 9 from outer space, its so bad that it's enjoyable in a weird way. I don't think that it's good but when it's ice cold and its put in from of you it's a great time to exclaim "screw it" and throw one back.

The worst beer I've ever had. Tastes just like it costs. So flat and absolutely no flavors other than a little corn. Would only recommend if you didn't have enough money for a better beer.

4/16/15 (Can) - Very pale white pour, minimal head, carbonation or scent. Taste very light, some hops and corn. Feels very easy going down, like ice cold water on a warm summer day. OK offering if you are staying light.

I freeze mine when I make growler runs. Perfect ice pack on a hot summer day.

The finest of historical lagers, found myself a 2007 vintage that my wife surprisingly cellared for me. She made the pour perfectly with just the right amount of light head.

Notes of the Smoky Mountains, and so cold my nipples could cut glass.

Would highly recommend on a special occasion.

Blind taste test out of 7 AALs, this was easily the worst. Metallic, watery, terrible finish.

A: Crystal clear straw color with large white head from aggressive pour no lacing

S: Almost non existent I get a little of the typical lager smell.

T: Very plain almost like a beer flavored water. Little grain and metallic taste.

M: Watery

O: Only reason I gave it a 2 was because it is so cheap and widely available but everything else is poor at best.

The worst thing I've ever put in my mouth. I'd rather drink piss. Even bud and coors are far better. And that's saying a lot

Pros: You can get a 30 pack of these at the local gas station for $18. The taste isn't very strong, thus is probably little better than Bud Light.

Cons: You will need to drink all 30 of these before you get any kind of a buzz at all. Hell, you can probably drink all 30 of them on the way home and not hit the legal limit. Then I question what's the point of drinking a light beer at all when one imperial stout has a fraction of the calories as 30 of these...

Might have overrated it a little but here is why:
Busch Light is cheap as hell
It doesn't have much flavor and isn't too carbonated making it easy to drink fast and get messed up.
Not a good beer but its easy to drink and cheap and I find myself buying it often
