I had a couple bottles of this stuff with my breakfast buffet at the Route 66 motel after running a 5k with a bunch of co-workers...and yes, they were drinking at breakfast too.
A - Prototypical macro lager gold with a prototypical macro lager flimsy sudsy head. Doesn't look any worse or better than any other (IB)MC crap.
S - Lagery generic "beer" smell. I don't know what that means since beer can smell like anything from tart fruit to pumpkins to dark chocolate, but this smells like what any red-blooded 'Merican would tell you beer smells like.
T - Not bad in any way, but not good in any other way. Corn, cereal grain, and clean rice.
M - High carbonation is typical for the style, and the clean crisp finish is what we Americans want in a beer right? No lingering taste = good. IMO, no aftertaste or finish = bad.
D - If I'm at a joint like the Route 66 Motel where the beer "selection" consists of MGD, Miller Light, Bud, Bud Light, Coors, and Coors Light (what DIVERSITY!) I'll pick this since it at least has more calories and hopefully that equates to more flavor than the other swill-beers.

A- Pours a light to medium yellow-gold in the glass. High clarity with about a 2 finger head that doesn't stick around very long at all. Little lacing.
S- Very light and grassy scent is primary and dominant. No hops detectable in the smell, and maybe a hint of skunky, light-struck scents. The scent does not linger and is very light.
T- Pretty much your standard AAL flavor right here. Very light malts up front, even though I hesitate to call them malts. Then there is a progression towards the lighter, grassy grain notes before moving quickly to a crisp finish that has very minimal hop flavors.
M- Very light and highly carbonated, this is the weight and feel of either a summer or college party pounder. Won't fill you up. Actually a little smoother than most AAL's, and I suspect that is the reason for the "draft" branding.
Overall, just a standard AAL. Not much to write home about here. What can I say? Drink these fast, get drunk, forget what you did the next day.
