look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

16 oz can was poured into a pint glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a one finger head that reduced to a thin layer. It us a golden straw yellow color with great clarity and bubbles seen coming up through the glass. Spotty lacing on the glass as the beer was drank.

Smell: Cereal grains, bready malts, some sweetness, lager yeast, and mild grassy hops.

Taste: Sweet and bready grains, lager yeast, grassy hops, and mild bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Typical lager aftertaste, crisp, refreshing, light bodied, and medium carbonation.

Overall: Pretty standard average adjunct lager. Seen it a bunch of times, so I gave it a whirl.

Tall boy can - six pack for $4.00! Pours straw yellow - a shade darker than the average American Adjunct Lager. Foamy white head, lingers for a bit then stays as a thin wispy lace on top of the beer. Aromas is faint hops and cornbread - again, a bit above average for the style. Taste - Bready with a corn tinge, hops are definitely apparent but very light - very clean flavor profile - crisp and refreshing. Overall, just a touch better than many of its more famous competitors - given that this is one of the cheapest beers out there ,it is not bad for what it is. would choose over Coors, Bud, or Pabst.

Poured in a pint glass from a 12oz can

A: Straw color with a finger and a half worth of a soapy white head that retains for longer than one would anticipate.

S: Grainy. Corn. Some weird soapy aroma. Very sweet in the smell. Almost a cloyingly sweet aroma.

T: Corn. A little grain husk type flavor. Sweet. Really no bitterness besides in the aftertaste (IBU around 12-14..?) Easy going. That weird soapy taste does kick in at the back of the palate.

M: Watery, slick, not quite carbonated enough IMO. Dry finish. Pretty clean and refreshing.

O: It's an alright, cheap AAL. Beer on a budget? Check it out. Nothing special but better than light beer.

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.
