22-oz. bomber into a pint glass at my house on Oct. 13, 2012 (purchased at Village Square Liquor & Kegs in San Diego for $2.99 (estimated, forgot to grab a receipt) on Oct. 13, 2012). Pale clear with 1 ½ fingers of white head that dissipated immediately. No retention on the tops or the sides.

Smelled bread, hay, cereal, corn, grass, light caramel and light honey. Surprisingly a bit enticing.

Tasted like a stronger version of the smell. Could definitely taste the alcohol. Got cereal, honey, corn, yeast and a sugary sweet malt.

Light body. Thin texture. Average-to-soft carbonation. Abrupt watery finish.

Not a bad beer for the type. Shame on me for thinking it would be better. A nice change of pace from the boring old Bud Light.

A - very pale and clear beer. Almost like water. 6% labeled on a purple bottle. Carbonation was minimum. Negligible lacing.

S - a very slight/light smell of corn.

T - no hops detectable by my palate. No taste of malt either yet you knew it was a beer.

M - light body one step above water.

O - I will not order this beer again. A very pale totally neutral beer.

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

Was hanging out with a friend and he handed this to me. Poured from a 12 fl. oz. bottle into clear plastic cup(was at friends apartment and that's all he had unfortunately)

A- Very pale yellow, poured with barely any head that did not linger, almost no lacing.

S- Very grapey, with the slightest hint of hops.

T- Like water with grapes and some hops. wanted to throw it down the drain but wanted to be polite to the friend that so graciously gave it to me.

M- Watery, thin, typical of the brand.

O- Bad beer. I don't know the price on this but it is probably way overpriced. Avoid, avoid, avoid

the head doesn't lace at all, little bubbles on top just form constellations and slowly fade away. fuck it, I am drunk! enjoying some 22's after a shift. this will do, for now. blue bottles make it snazzy, taste in yer nazzty but not as bad as tequila

I really don't think this beer lived up to the hype surrounding it and the price is ridiculous. I can have a Milwaukee BEST Ice that tastes waaay better than this and is priced at an awesome $13 for a 30 pack.
I really did expect a lot more from the Bud Light family.. but I was sadly disappointed.
