12oz can poured into a lager glass. The 'Super Cold' indicator on the can was blue.

A: Dull straw color, to the point of being almost white. A strong pour builds a massive rocky white head initially, but this soon collapses into nothing. Even the narrow design of the lager glass can't help it to sustain a head. Lacing is minimal and wispy.

S: Hay-like grainy scents. A little starchy and vegetal. Very clean. That's really it.

T: Thin suggestion of doughy grains. A little corny and starchy. No real hop bitterness and barely any hop taste. Somewhat of a vegetal flavor. Touch of sulfur, a bit metallic as well. Finish leaves a ghostly doughy and vegetal aftertaste with metallic notes.

M: As light as light can get in body. There's a sort of foamy creaminess to it, but it ultimately ends up very watery. Aggressive blast of force carbonation really allows you to rip some outstanding burps.

O: One of the world's greatest marketing feats was to convince men that light beers like this, which were originally conceived as diet beers, were the only beers a man should ever consider drinking. Now it's so entrenched in the masculine ideal that if you're not chugging a can of this and crushing it against your skull when you're through, you're a pussy. This is the swill I proudly drank straight through high school and right into my latter college days. It's meant to pander to the lowest common denominator, and it does just that. Its advantages are that it is ubiquitous, affordable, and lacking in any offensive character. Its drawbacks are that it really lacks any meaningful taste or character at all, it's low in alcohol and as drinkable as seltzer water. What's manly about that?

Poured from a can into a shaker pint, the beer is a very pale, golden yellow color with no head whatsoever. Aromas of toast and not much else. A little bit of tangy, but really stretching to find even that. Flavors are toasted forward, with a butter and grainy character throughout, and literally nothing more. Very watery body, with a crispness from the extremely high amount of carbonation throughout the body. Very sharp, overly crisp finish, with a grainy aftertaste. Jesus, I don't know how I drank so much of this in college.
