2.15/5  rDev +32.7%
look: 2 | smell: 2 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Presentation: 12 oz clear glass twist off bottle, definitely a more expensive bottle being that it has the look of broken ice above and below the label rather tha a run of the mill brown bottle. “Born On” date on the side of the label.

Appearance: Pale yellow colour with an obvious clarity that is brought on by extended conditioning as well as ultra cold filtering. The head leaves nothing much at all other than a thin slowly dissolving white lace.

Smell: Neutral yet cloying corn and grain sweetness with a processed lager twang, relatively clean aroma all in all.

Taste: Very light in body with a straight up dryness from the get go. Clean on the palate, light smoothness and a big splash of crispness. Malt flavour is very thin with mild yet strained cereal grain flavours. Hops give a weak but quick bit of bitterness, nothing if the form of hop flavour and the bitterness is hastily to leave. Faded graininess is scrawny and tired. As soon as those flashes of flavour come through they fade to nearly nothing just as fast. After taste is virtually clean and gives little remnants that beer was ever in the mouth other than a hidden alcohol that slowly warms the body.

Notes: Not much there at all, take Bud Light and Bud Ice and meld them together. Not much difference at all, no point in drinking Bud Light or Bud Ice if this is around. That is not much consolation is it …
