Good ol Pabst. Seems better out of the bottle, not sure if its a carbonation difference. Straw body, with a fizzy head, same smell as the cans, bit of malt.
Light malt flavor with a hint of bitterness, corny flavor on the finish as it warms.
My favorite cheap beer, especially after a long day of work. If the "corny" aftertaste wasn't there it would be exceptional for the price.

Can: a standard-looking white macro can. Pretty much what you expect from a major macro.
Appearance: pours a standard adjunct lager - clear yellow-amber with a fair ol' whack of head that fizzles away to a white half-finger. Decent.
Aroma: smells of the usual grain and light hop aromas, but with a small amount of fruits.
Taste: pretty much follows the nose - standard grains and hops with a small amount of fruit behind. A refreshing and decent lager.
Aftertaste: drops away fairly quickly as is standard for the adjunct lager style. Quite drinkable.
Mouth feel: plenty of carbonation as expected - a decently refreshing beer for a hot day.
Overall: I'm not entirely sure why this beer scored 'poor' - it's a decent, refreshing lager as good as any other standard macro, for a much lower price than many others. It isn't going to blow your socks off if you're after something special, but as an every day lager, it's pretty much unbeatable.

3.29/5 rDev +11.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.25 | overall: 3.25
16oz can poured into a pint glass
A: Crystal clear yellow and a surprising two-finger head
S: Light malt, rice/corn. Simple but clean
T: Light malt, here a touch of butterscotch comes into play rather than the adjunct grains
M: Light-bodied but crisp & refreshing
O: Sure this may lack the complexity of the smaller production brews we're more familiar with but I don't understand its 'poor' overall rating. It's refreshing and not a flaw to be found, and I haven't had any BMC in forever but it tastes better than I recall those being
