look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

A: Medium gold that kind of glows. Drop of orange. Nice looking.

S: Beer smell...nothing else.

T: One of the smoothest and most crisp beers. The only problem is that it is very very watery. You dont get the crappy adjunct taste like in BMC's. But you also dont get much else. Most drinkable beer out there though. It's like water, but not bad. Extremely non=offensive.

M: Wet and fizzy. Very very crisp and smooth.

O: Very cheap and light beer with some flavor. I like it.

Why do I keep subjecting myself to the AALs? Pour is bright yellow and fizzy. No head, but the carbonation should produce something. Oh but wait, no. The smell is just astringent at best. Light notes of sweet corn, but its light at best. I think theres so much water that nothing can come through. Im talking like 99% water.

Oh but the taste isnt water. Its all bite. Astringency all the way. If this bit were from hops, I would forgive it a bit, but nope. Its all from the malt (or well rice, corn, and adjuncts).

All in all, I drank 1/5 of the glass and left it on the bar.

look: 1.25 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Appearance - Light pale yellow with a frothy 1/2 inch off-white head.

Aroma - Not much going on in terms of smell. Slight grain/corn.

Taste - Similar to the aroma, not much in terms of taste just a bit of grain/corm.

Mouthfeel - Light body with a quite a bit of carbonation.

Overall - Tastes like carbonated water.

Took down a pint at the neighborhood bar.

A - Pours a super pale straw colour, thin layer of head with no retention or lacing.

S - Mild on the nose, sweet corn, straw and grassy notes.

T - This is a light lager alright, sweet corn and bready malts come through and quickly fade. This is like water with faint beer flavor additives that leave you questioning whether you actually ordered beer and it got switched with water.

M - Thin, smooth and wet.

O - One pint was more than enough. An underwhelming light lager with flavors so mild it could be mistaken for a pint of beer that was mixed 50/50 with water. Avoid.
