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.

Served in a bottle at The Village Pourhouse in Hoboken, NJ

A: Pours a crystal clear light golden yellow in color with moderate to heavy amounts of visible carbonation and some light lemon yellow highlights. The beer has a finger tall sudsy white head that slowly reduces to an extremely thin film covering less than half of the surface of the beer and a very thin ring at the edges of the glass. Minimal amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of sweet malts and grain adjuncts.

T: Moderate flavors of sweet malts with some grainy adjuncts and just a touch of grassy and flroal hops. Light amounts of bitterness in the finish that fade rather quickly.

M: Light bodied with slightly more than moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: Easy to drink and definitely more flavorful than the other BMC beers (and probably less offensive) - I would not cringe at having to drink this one at the ballpark/stadium or a concert but I definitely will not be purchasing this one for home consumption. The flavor severely worsens as this one warms up - needs to be drank very cold.
