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

12oz bottle poured into pint glass. Neck label stamped 11272; not sure if that's a date.

Appearance - Clear ultra pale body. Pours 1 1/2 finger head. Loose and white with low retention and no stick.

Smell - Faint corn. Almost nothing. I'm getting some faint citrus which may indicate a dirty bar glass. Or maybe not. Inoffensive and non-existent smell, basically.

Taste - Corn. Candy sweet malt. Sweet finish.

Mouthfeel - Some frothiness when agitated in the mouth. Otherwise somewhat effervescent and light bodied.

Overall Drinkability - Comparable to Budweiser. Perhaps not as complex and flavorful. Which, in this style, isn't saying much. Easy drink. Decent in style.
