Light side of golden - and a stark, soapy white head that quickly dissipates - for the appearance.
As for the aroma, it smells very clean, with hints of barely malt peak under the generalized grain smell; you get mainly rice and a slight breadiness. A slight bitterness, but almost undetectable to the nose.
The taste is very watery and bland. The beginning is sweet, then there's the adjuncts/rice. There is a slight bitterness in the middle and towards the end, and it finishes with a white breadiness (i.e., barely malt).
It's crisp, clean, refreshing and dry.
It's more bland than when I remember having it from a can. Nonetheless, this is what I think of it as of now.
Personally, I think Natural Ice has more flavor, a better flavor, and there's more alcohol, all for a lower price. I'd get Natty over this, but this is a good beer all its own.

25 oz can.
Pours crystal clear.
Fizzy white head disappears before you know it.
Super carbonated. Makes the first few swallows harsh going down.
Has a foul adjunct aroma.
Not much flavor, some sweetness upfront., and a foul taste on the back end.
Ice cold it is drinkable but borders on Nasty.
The only thing that this beer has going for it is that it is cheap.
And being cheap can't even save it because there are plenty of cheap beers out there that are enjoyable.
If you want to get wasted, you would be better served to drink some high gravity malt liquor.
No reason to drink this.
