1.85/5 rDev -20.6%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 1.5
My saga to lower my average score continues. Tallboy poured into a pilsner glass (this is a pilsner, right?).
3.5 A: Compared to the Bud Light I recently had, this looks like a stout. Noncomparatively, this is pale yellow and super clear. Nearly three fingers of frothy white head with average retention and a decent amount of lacing.
2.0 S: Dry, dusty graininess with nothing else going on. Maybe some rice.
1.0 T: This is truly fucking awful. I can't remember the last time I had this beer (it might have been while I was under age), but I never thought it would be so awful. It's paradoxically tasteless and sickeningly sweet in a rice sort of way.
3.0 M: I can't complain a whole lot about the mouthfeel. It's crisp and light and not ridiculously overcarbonated like most of these types of beers.
1.5 D: The only reason this gets a 1.5 instead of a 1.0 is because the mouthfeel isn't horrible. I can't believe this is this bad though.

12 oz. bottle poured into pilsner
L: straw, very pale yellow, crystal clear; about 2/3-inch white foam head, a little sticking and lacing
S: grain ... a hint of barley sweetness; watered-down lemon; hint of bread malt sweetness
T: very kolsch-like ... some barley malt sweetness, not bready or like biscuits but still sweet, with the slightest taste of earthy/pepper hops. not bitter. loads and loads of grain taste, no corn (obviously) but lots of cereal grain
F: surprisingly full and not just from over-carbonation -- it's not overly watery
O: i'm shocked, but this isn't half bad, and it's better than a handful of craft beers I've had in the kolsch/blonde ale category. there's next to no hop presence, so it doesn't compare well to pilseners, but octoberfests and dortmunder lagers, yeah ... it's similar to those. everything tastewise is pretty muted, but it has just enough sweetness to it to offer some character.
when in doubt and stuck with the typical BMC offerings, this is a no-brainer. adjunct lagers are thought of as swill, but this is MUCH MUCH better than the BMC "light beer".

Not outstanding but not terrible. Definitely not the King of Beers as the slogan says. It's pretty average. Light in coloring, easy to drink, maybe a bit on the watery side. Definitely not the best I've ever tasted but not the worst either. I would drink it at say, a football game.
