Pours light straw yellow with a thick white head that descends to a lasting thin cover. A little lacing sticks.
The smell is of a hint of grain - relatively inoffensive.
The taste is of mild sweet grain, water, more water... Mild sweetness is balanced by a hint of non-descript hops. There is a touch of soap that mixes in and out.
It is crisp - not too fizzy considering the style.
I would easily chose a Miller High Life over this - and I did follow it with one - big difference. The money went to the same brewery, anyway.
This is cheap beer - and below average for that, in my opinion. Not enjoyable, though I was able to chug the second half and move on.

16 oz. tallboy poured into a Fitger's mug. Pale light straw with a frothy white head. Surprisingly long-lasting with thick splotches of lacing as it slowly falls.
Aroma is very sweet. Caramel, honey, and a healthy dose of adjunct sweetness. Hay. Floral and grassy hops.
Flavor is thin, but not unpleasant. A bit of corny sweetness, a dash of honey, and a touch of grassy hops.
Mouthfeel is light-bodied with a healthy bit of carbonation. Clean and refreshing.
Overall, this is a pretty standard adjunct lager. It's boring but inoffensive. I got it out of a $1 grab bag at a local liquor store, but otherwise wouldn't buy another one.

twelve cans for $5.99 is bang for your buck. At that price, what can you expect..
Nonetheless this brew was not as bad as the price tag made it look. Though it did have the same pathetic pale yellow hue as other low end beers and a scent almost identical, the taste and mouthfeel earned it an extra star. The taste jumps at you when you're not expecting- something stronger than the average bottom shelf.
I'd recommend this to a buddy tight on cash.
