A: Light urine color. About a centimeter of head that is gone almost instantly. No lacing.

S: Little to no smell. Faint alcohol and wheat smell.

T: Lacks any depth. Sour after taste. Watery badness.

M: Watery. Goes down smooth.

O: Cheap and easy to find. Not the worst of the domestic beers, mostly because of the 5% alcohol. But the taste is terrible. The "King of Beers" is not worthy of a crown.

WORST BEER EVER AND IT'S THE ONLY BEER THAT I WOULD NEVER WANT TO TRY AGAIN. IT SEEMS TO BE ONLY ENJOYED BY THOSE WHO SETTLE FOR WHAT HAS NO TASTE. I WOULD CHOOSE ANY BEER OVER THIS BEER... I LOVE BEER BUT IF BUDWEISER WAS THE ONLY BEER MADE I WOULD GIVE UP BEER.

Medium straw color with yellow hues. 1/2 finger bright white head with very short retention.

Very light malt notes, grassy, rice, can of sweet corn and mild fruitiness.

Green apple, white bread crust, and rice. Slight bitterness on the back of the palate keeps everything clean.

Medium- body, with a crisp, short, clean finish. Watery in the back end of the finish.

Even with the faults, its like the beer version of most Pinot Grigio: fairly neutral and in-offensive. You can session it without guilt or fault, but there will be no epiphany while drinking.

24 oz can poured into a tulip. 17JUN13 on the bottom of the can.

A: Pours a clear very light yellowish gold with a decent white head. Fairly quick to dissipate the head doesnt leave much of a lacing. Lots of visible carbonation, big bubbles.

S: Mild aroma of pale malts, bit of a macro tinge to it. Not too exciting.

T: Easy going flavor that doesnt have too much depth. Bit of a sweet malty flavor as well as breadiness.

M: Light body with a decent amount of carbonation. Clean finish.

Overall I think most people know what to expect with this one. Is something widely available and a beer everyone has had.
