look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Born on date of 12/09/2011.
Poured into a pilsener.

Appearance: Fizzy, white frothy 2 finger head. The head stayed around for a couple of minutes leaving a little bit of lacing. Ligkt yellow color. Very little carbonation.

Smell: A little bit of malt with some grains.

Taste: This was the most disappointing aspect of this beer. Very little taste. Like it smelled. A little malt and grain.

Mouth Feel: Light, dry, thin fizzy water.

Overall: It started out looking pretty good for a light lager. It was all downhill after that. It's "Natural Light" cousin is actually a better beer. This is not a beer that I need again.

AS this is my cheap beer of choice for getting hammered at parties and what not, let's review it!

Appearance - Pours a straw/gold color with very little head and absolutely no lacing whatsoever.

Smell - Grainy and metallic, doesn't really smell like anything.

Taste - Again, doesn't really taste like much at all. Maybe my palate isn't refined enough for such a fine product, but it tastes like water to me.

Mouthfeel - At least it's nice and crisp! Goes down smooth given the carbonation level, especially if its ice cold.

Overall - You get what you pay for man. This is a cheap beer even for the style. Good for beer bongs, drinking games, frat parties, etc.

Why do I do this to myself? Open minded...here we go...

This is very light, just barely pale gold color. Quick white head that goes "dodo" very quickly.

Stale malt and corn aroma. Dank. Old socks

Taste? Not much. The stale malt is more old socksy and the corn is underneath. I'd think this is sock flavored water. Fizzy. This does not taste like beer. Not even close, but it does match the category a bit.
