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

why have I chosen to pick this beer up again and actually try at imbibing it? its not a pleasant experience and why I have chosen to go through it again is not something I can explain.

The appearance is of an off gold dull color. Bubbles rise to the top. The head is minimal and...now nonexistent. It just looks really dull and unpleasant to me.

The smell is of water. I may smell a bit of hops but my nose deceives me as Im trying to be optimistic.

My family knows this beer really well and describe it as "cold pisswater". this is not wrong as I kind get the tone of urine.

The taste gives the taste of water and the tone, again, of urine.
The mouthfee is harsh. its pretty carbonated and not too drinkable.

I really dislike it. The only taste there is is of urine and water and carbonation. The people this beer is for is those who just want to get drunk for cheap, but still there are better cheap beers out there than this crap. I hate to be blunt but I cannot get over the dislike I have for it.

If you want a cheap light lager, go to keystone light, miller light, or even bud light. Avoid this one as well as Coors light. Sorry thats just as blunt as you have to be about these two. Avoid Busch light.

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

24oz can poured into a Guiness pint glass. Bottom of the can
stamped born on 20sept11.

Appearance - Pale gold body with a white 1 finger head with low to no retention and no stick.

Smell - Bubble gum and corn. Probably the sweetest smelling american light lager I've had to date.

Taste - Short lived bitter/spicy hop astringency up front. Quickly fades away into a dull sugar water concoction.

Mouthfeel - Somewhat effervescent. Mostly watery.

Overall drinkability - Best chilled and about 2 seconds after being poured. Probably best just to drink this straight from the can to preserve the ethereal carbonation.
