From can no. 30JUL-MZ46 sampled on January 15, 2012. It is fifteen degrees outside so I placed this can on my front step to really chill it down naturally. Natural Light? Natural cooling? Why not? I review these on their style not on their reputation.

So it pours yellow with carbonation angst and a foamy head. The head fades fast. It looks like it supposed to. Aromas of barley malt, cereal, light yeast, and clean hop note. Better than anticipated but still very typical. The body is thin and watery. The taste is grainy with a slightly unexpected dry finish. Still nothing extraordinary. All in all a typical light macro lager.

Serving type: can

1.78/5  rDev +6%
look: 4 | smell: 1 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

Poured from 24 oz. can into pint glass. Reviewed to style.

Appearance: Pours a clear pale golden hue with a (surprising) three-finger head! It's soapy white and actually leaves lacing down the glass! Whoa!

Smell: Water. Metal. Corn, maybe?

Taste: Extremely faint, and I mean extremely faint corn adjuncts, metals, and grass, and a large dose of water.

Mouthfeel: Light, crisp, refreshing.

Overall: Just as bad, if not, worse than the big-name BMC lights.

Serving type: can

look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

A - A very pale yellow with a fast-bubbling and dissipating, white, 2-finger head which left behind some thing tiny-bubbled lacing.

S - Smells mostly like corn and yeast, very plane pale american pilsner.

T - Very faint yeast and corn flavors with a slight sweetness to it, not a whole lot going on.

M - Watery, which I think is a great thing for this made-chuggable beer.

O - It's my favorite within the style of "drinking game" beer. I would rather have Natty Light than Bud Light, Miller Light, Coors Light or any other cheap garbage beer. This affectionately-named "frat water" is a must-have for all collegiate men pursuing higher and noble ideals.

1.73/5  rDev +3%
look: 1.5 | smell: 1 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 1.5

A- Very light gold, a lot of carbonation. One finger head that disappears pretty fast.

S- A lot of corn and rice. Not a huge surprise.

T- Not much, there's some corn in there, but it's what you expect from a light adjunct lager.

M- Light bodied and very drinkable. Easy to get blasted on this stuff, no question.

O- I don't hate it, but it's pretty typical for the style. Probably wouldn't ever go out and buy it unless I was trying to get hammered. Actually, Genny Ice might be a better solution there.

Serving type: bottle
