2.95/5  rDev +49.7%
look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Appearance: pale yellow, little visible carbonation, short lived head

Smell: Sweet/sour smell of raw, wet malts

Taste: Sweet malts come to the forefront. Very straightforward taste; no complexity. Not offensive, but not something to savor, sort of like having a can of coke in that way.

Mouthfeel: Thicker than water, but thin in body and sparse in carbonation

Overall: 3/5 or 60/100 is "okay," and that's how I'd rate this beer. It tastes of cheap beer, and that's what it is. Not something you would sip and enjoy, but something that's fine at quenching your thirst on a hot day, or giving you a buzz after knocking back a few.

It's cheap; I bought a 36 pack of cans for $22. Which is neat, but you obviously sacrifice quality. It seems like they just made a beer flavored extract, mixed it with carbonated water and called it alcoholic. It tastes like a light beer with all the calories of regular. I would probably have to drink 6 to feel it and actually enjoy it. All in all what did i expect from Anheiser Busch?
