Poured from 16oz tall can into a pint glass.

Appearance: pale straw hue with no haze and a very strong effervescence. Head is a thick layer of white foam which dissipates almost instantly. Not great; not the worst, either.

Smell: sweetish, plasticy smell. Not good, but pretty inoffensive.

Taste: extremely light and largely inoffensive. A little bit grainy and a tiny hint of fruitiness, but mostly tasteless.

Mouthfeel: extremely light bodied, but lots of effervescence to try to juice it up. Pretty much par for what this beer should be.

Overall: highly drinkable, and so tasteless as to be completely inoffensive. Probably a great tailgating beer. Not something I'd normally go for, but for a light lager you could do a lot worse.

look: 2.25 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 1.75

truly inferior beer, even for budget crap. offensive yellow soda water that tastes more like licking a battery than anything containing grain or hops. extract all the way here, I just don't taste any grain at all, none. metallic in the finish, more aluminum than I care to taste. its only asset (if you can call it that), is its refreshment capacity. when its freezing cold, a good chug can quench a thirst. this is so because the beer has essentially no flavor, so like a massively carbonated water. I don't mind a regular busch, but this low cal offering is brutal, even as the 30 pack stuff goes.
