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

Poured from a can into a glass.

A- Typical straw color that you see in aals. very little head.

S- Not much to smell here, some grains if you try hard enough.

T-Really compared to other aals it isn't all that bad. It is watery and doesn't have alot going on here either. Probably the best thing about this beer, although that still isn't saying a whole lot.

M-High carbonation and very light bodied. Goes down smooth.

O-Not a great beer even for aals but its not the worst. I would drink this over a few bmcs though. It is cheap beer so take it for what it is.

Pours pale with a decent, but quickly dissipating, head. Smells totally decent, if very very light, uncomplicated barley and adjunct cereal without so much as a hint of hops. There's barely anything there, but for the style that's to be expected.

Tastes--eh, there had to be a severe drop off, didn't there? It has the same lightly soapy offness of Bud Lite, only the bubbleblow nodes aren't buffeted by anything beery, things just get more medicinal as the sip progresses. It goes from soap to aspirin to heartburn all in one gulp.

Not nearly the worst beer I've ever had. It's nearly inoffensive. But if you're looking for a light-as-air beer you can pound quickly and thoughtlessly, you'd still be better off drinking Keystone Light, as that provides the same cheap buzz with maybe half the gross nodes.
