look: 1 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Had a few cans left over from a work assignment and decided I should review one. Poured into a Sam Adams Perfect Pint Glass. It's really one of the worst looking beers I've tried certainly doesn't look like a "king" of any magnitude. Pale yellow that you can see straight through. There is a bubbly and fizzy head that goes away extreamly quickly, probably faster than any other beer I've had, includig Bud Light. There isn't much of a smell to it and what you can smell isn't that good. Smells like it's cheap and skunked. Despite not looking or smelling good, the taste isn't the worst thing in the world. It's certainly not a style that I'm a fan of but I'd say it's pretty average for an American Adjunct Lager. Has a grainy taste with maybe some rice, nothing about it is strong though, like the smell it tastes a little cheap, I wouldn't say they exactly use high quality ingredients. The moutnhfeel isn't that great, feels a bit watered down, not that drinkable either. No matter how hard they try, I can never consider this the "King of Beers" it's just too weak. It also makes me dissapointed to hear that this is the self proclaimed "Great American Lager" it's just a macro beer with great marketing and they got the mainstream to enjoy it. Good for them, but it's not for me.
