A good tasting light beer. Not tons of flavor but very smooth.

Very little I can say about this brew. Tastes like most macros, a light beer with mostly barley in it's flavor.

Maybe a bit heavier overall, but really, my first thought was how much it tasted like a Bud Light.

Drinkable if nothing else is around.

Comparing this against light beers like coors light and Bud light, other Light beers. This stuff is way better. Decent flavor at a decent price. refreshing on a hot day
