Am I really this bored that I am reviewing bud? I guess, so in the immortal words of Brian Fellow; So lets get going!

This beer is bright and clear. It has a quarter inch of white head that recedes to a film. It leaves a little bit of spotty lacing, but really not much. Aroma is light and inoffensive. Mildly grainy, not much hop presence, it is not bad, just not especially good. Flavor is similar, mildly sweet, light and unassuming. Mouthfeel is light, good carbonation, dry, refreshing, exactly what this beer should be. I do understand why people give this lower grades, and I expected to give it lower marks, but it is an adjunct lager and it is so inoffensive and unassuming without any significant off flavors that I cant. Just drink it cold and you're all good.

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

A: Clear gold like ginger ale with very little white head.

S: Grain, crisp, subtle sweetness.

T: Cold, rice, corn with a little malt sweetness and a touch of hop bitterness. In other words generic swill.

M: Watery, thin, weak, over carbonation.

O: This beer is made for chugging by those who want cheap most common denominator party beer. Unless you are broke and need a beer, any beer don't bother.

A: clear almost water. Lightest straw imaginable. Almost no white head.

S: crisp, clean subtle corn. Dms present.

T: crisp, refreshing, rice crisp, corn back bone, little malt sweetness. Not much hop bitterness. Everything America loves to hate.

M: crisp, sweet. Not really anything else. Carbonation is weak.

O: easy to drink. Better than bud light but that's not saying much. This is pure chugging party beer. No other reason to ever drink this.
