1.88/5 rDev -36.5%
look: 4 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5
Poured from a 24 ounce can into a 16.9 ounce beer glass.
Appearance: Whoops! Heavy pour results in MASSIVELY foamy head (four or five iinches...yikes) which actually settles into a decent two-finger head after a moment. User error there. Beer is a pale golden color with abundant carbonation which eases off after a few moments. Looks filtered, not murky at all. The receding head leaves a light trace of foam around the inside of the glass. All things considered, it looks like an adjunct lager should.
Smell: Ouch...heavy corn alcohol invades my nostrils. Absolutely no trace of anything else in my opinion. Rotting corn.
Taste: Cold, saltless urine. That's about the best I can do. Vinegar and grain battle in futility over who will have the strongest taste. In the end, there isn't much of an aftertaste, which is the best thing I can say about the taste. Even for what it is, this is poor.
Mouthfeel: Very oily...not something I would expect from a beer. Unpleasantly slimy, leaves a film after imbibed.
Drinkability: Low. Not recommendable. If it were literally ICE cold and it was being chugged, it might be a "do-able" beer. As it stands, I don't know if I can finish the tallboy.
It's cheap; a local bar sells this beer for $1 per 32-ounce pitcher. That is the only reason I could ever see myself drinking this beer again.

3.38/5 rDev +14.2%
look: 3.25 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5
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
