1.73/5 rDev -25.8%
Serving glass: Poured from can into Pint glass.
Appearance: Clear golden with a surprisingly sustained stark white bubbly head. That said, the strange neon cast to the color is distracting.
Smell: Muted grainy malts with lots of corn. Slight hay and spice.
Taste: Very little, mostly sweet grains (corn) with a small hay-like balance. virtually no hops.
Feel: High carbonation, very light body. Too much like carbonated water.
Drinkability: Not worth it.

This stuff is marketed heavily in Minnesota, and the upper midwest (in fact, i think it is only distributed here). It is clear gold, with a white head. i drank it out of it's unique paneled bottle. It's very bland and non-intrusive. A little malt, an absence of hops, still it watery tasting, and not worth your while.

Reviewed from notes.
Pours pale yellow with a thin white head which disappears quickly. Smells of light grain, a little bit of hops, and not much else. Taste just like it smells. Light grain, and small hop presence. Mostly tastes watered down.
Light bodied, a lot of carbonation, no real aftertaste. Nothing here which merits trying this again. I had this at a holiday get together with the relatives, and decided to try it.

Sampled at the International Falls, MN Country Club.
The beer pours a very pale yellow with a large chemically looking head. No lacing.
Hardly any aroma at all, if you strain you may bet a bit of grass or hay.
Taste is slightly better. A bit of sweetness and the faintest whisper of grains. Hops are virtually nonexistent.
Thin mouth that the carbonation can not over come. Drinkable in a pinch., but there must be something better on about any beer list.

Had this on tap, thinking it was $1...much to my dismay that special ended 30 minutes ago.
Pours a light golden color, nice head on it.
Smell is basically non-existent...which is better than it being skunky or noticeably terrible.
Taste is fairly generic, and weak overall. Some faint hops occasionally poke through, but there really isn't a whole lot to this guy. No wonder my friends can put it away like no one's business...this is way better than Natty Light.
M & D: carbonation is way too strong, aside from that...watery thin. I guess this scores decently on drinkability because it's bound to not offend anyone's taste buds.
You might rather drink something else, but its just too boring to be that bad.

Some one left this bottle orphaned in my cooler after a guy's weekend so I inherited it, along with 5 Wisconsin Capital Ambers, and one Hacker Pshorr Oktoberfest. So, it's 10 o'clock on a Saturday with a good boxing match on (Calzaghe VS Kessler) so after round one I sprinted down to the beer fridge and picked out this poor soul. A very faint aroma, some carbonation, no metalic smell to it. There's really not much to review as far as taste goes because there isn't any. If some one asked you, "How's that beer taste, I've never had it?" You'd have a hard time responding and probably would just give them one because they aren't going to really hate it or really love it and drink you out of it. After 3 rounds I gratefully went and got a Captial Amber to finally have a beer with the boxing match.

Remember those ribbed bottles from about a decade ago? High-larious, although I guess they saved a few bottles from being dropped.
One of the weakest 'beer'pearances I've ever seen, at least before the low calorie craze. Super light yellow, no head, lace or retention. Zilch aroma.
Taste, as you'd expect, no malt or hop quality to speak of. Nothing tastes 'bad', just nothing tastes. So it's a good palate cleanser if you think drinking water is for pussies. There's just not much to speak of here, when water is the predominant 'quality' in a beer. I've had worse, this isn't painful to drink or anything, unless you're jonesing for some beer or a buzz.

Pours a nice clean/clear yellow color, nice carbonation, small white head, with some minimal sticky lacing left behind. The nose is slightly malty, grainy, and ricy. The taste is malty, slightly sweet, with too much grains/rice. Light Body. A thirst quencher only.

I found this lone can in my future father-in law's fridge...he doesn't drink BMC crap, so I'm assuming someone left it after a party or something. Anyway, I feel compleled to try any beer that I've never had...so here it goes.
A - Pale yellow with a flimsy white cap that disappears quickly. No lace, no love.
S - Corn husk and sugar. More assertive than most light macros, and not offensive in any way. Pretty boring though.
T - Clean cornflakes and some sugar...again, nothing offends the palate. A very clean beer. Towards the sweet-n-clean finish, a slightly soapy note comes through.
M - Crisp and clean with some foamy-ness onthe finish at the end that muddles up the feel and ruins the palate.
D - Extremely boring and nearly flavorless, this is clean and flavor-free....like sparkling water. Honestly, this ain't half bad for a light macro lager but that ain't sayin' much.

This is very popular, though I don't know why. This pours very light yellow with almost no head. Taste is very watered down, with very little hops or anything else to speak of. Extremely grainy tasting, with husk notes. I have nothing good to say about this. Why is this crap so popular?
