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

Better than Bud Light and cheaper. I find it refreshing and enjoyable.
