2.4/5  rDev +42.9%
look: 1.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 3

GLASS: Pilsener Glass
TEMP: Fridge chilled to approx 38 degrees
24oz TallBoy Can (Purchased in Kansas/full-strength)

This has got to be the least 'beer-looking' beer that I've ever had. It is a very pale, straw yellow, color. Almost like someone watered-down a Bud, or something. Very weak looking. The head of bone-white foam is almost two-fingers thick, but dissipates rapidly, leaving wispy bits of foam on the surface. The lacing is in medium-thickness strands, but is pretty slippery.

Very light trace of malt. Small dose of corn. Decent graininess to it. Light touch of lemon, maybe from hops? Like the look, it's very unimpressive.

If you drained the juice from a can of corn into a glass, squeezed an 1/8th of a lemon into it, dropped in an Alka-Seltzer tab, then watered it down to 50%, I'm guessing that you would get something that tastes like this.

It's light-bodied with an almost high level of carbonation. It is very light and crisp, for sure, but the crispness has an undesired sharpness to it.

Sure, it's cheap, and I guess that if that's your main goal then it will probably get you where you want to go. I'd rather have something that tastes good. Although, if I had to drink some BMC product, this one is so bland that it comes off as completely inoffensive. That's a positive note, I guess.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

16 oz can born on 19 Jun 14 at 40 degrees into standard pint glass
Aroma very weak rice (?)
Head large (8 cm), white, fizzy, rapidly diminishing to 2 mm layer
Lacing none
Body very light yellow, clear
Flavor pretty much none, maybe a hint of dimethylsulfide; no hops, no malt, no alcohol, no diacetyl
Palate light, watery, lively carbonation

If you’ve got nothing else to drink, including water, this is passable.

The first "beer" I ever tasted. Never again.

I'm not sure it's really necessary to review it, but I shall anyway.

It looked too light to be something I ought to be drinking.

It smelled vaguely like beer, but not in a good way.

It felt like water, not beer, not alcohol at all, just water. Unfortunately, it didn't taste like water. It tasted like a weak and yet oddly pungent mixture of things that shouldn't be fermenting together.
