Pours very pale clear gold with a thin head. I get distracted for about 30 seconds and when I return to my freezing-cold just-poured beer the bubbly white cap has vanished. It is nearly naked, but decent lacing has been left on the side of my globe glass. It smells simply adjuncty and a bit metallic at first. A chemical aroma like that of solvents wanders into my nose. Some corn-syrup sweetness and hay-like scents seem to pose as hop flavor, but my sniffer knows better. Or perhaps I'm just cynical toward American macro-brewed lagers. I can't shake the artificial plastic or glue smell. Bubbles were rising to the surface at a rapid pace a minute ago, but now tiny gaseous carbonation spheres crawl up the sides of the glass and the occasional bubble makes its way from beer to atmosphere in the middle of the liquid's surface.
The first taste is almost too cold to get much. The mountains on the bottle were as blue as the rockies when I...wait. The rockies aren't blue!
Anyway, that first taste features a mild sweet-malt taste close to the end and leaves a bit of corn on the palate. Luckily the nasty chemical smell is not evident in the taste. But neither is much else. Very dry in the beginning and just plain fizzy and refreshing in the middle. A bit of apple juice is present, making this taste like weak sparkling cider. The aftertaste is less dry than I expected, with some sweetness and stale yeast. The malt is mostly bready but I think more rice and corn are used than malted barley. The body is thin and just as carbonated-watery as the flavor. Crispness is the redeeming quality for this beer.
This fails to meet my super-low expectations. I prefer even coors light to coors.

Poured from a 24 ounce tallboy into a sampler. The beer has an expiration date of May 2014 (reviewed in mid-March). A moderate pour produces a short-lived, half inch, snow white head that reduces to almost nothing inside of 30 seconds. The beer is a pale golden color with carbonation somewhat on the high side.
Of course, there isn't much aroma and the flavor is rather light. I definitely detect some corn mash notes, light malt, and a kiss of floral hops. This one has just a wee bit of a stale, wet cardboard taste, which is the only thing off-putting about it. Some sweetness and hardly any bitterness in the aftertaste, which is quite clean. The mouthfeel is fairly creamy for an AAL.
In the summer, this is one of my go-to beers- it is relatively common, usually fairly cheap and comes in cans- good for camping, fishing and rafting. I honestly don't think Coors is as good in a bottle. A can of this is a real delight when the beer is ice cold and you are broiling hot- just what this type of beer is made for. It has way more flavor and a little more body than a Coors Light, which for some reason is extremely popular around here. It goes really well with grilled meat.
