2.74/5 rDev -6.8%
Perhaps the most pathetic, i.e. wimpy, beer I have ever witnessed. The color was golden fair enough, but the head was thin soapy and died quickly. Despite the bubbles that lined the glass, the beer gave a very stale, boring appearance.
The scent was relatively weak with some adjunct like qualities. Corny and metallic it was not particularly pleasant.
The taste was corny adjunct as well but it lost the metallic tone. It appeared to be well carbonated and gave an easy crisp feel. I had PBR in a can months ago and found it much better than this. I may try it again and reassess.

3.5/5 rDev +19%
Appearance: 1/2 inch head, gold in color, clear, moderate carbonation
Smell: grass, straw, and adjuncts
Taste: corn, straw, and adjuncts
Mouthfeel: moderate carbonation, light bodied, nice mix of sweet and bitter
Overall: Above average clean American adjunct lager..Probably better than Coors and Miller, but I still prefer Schaeffer or Bud in this style. A nice end of the night beer.

12oz can into a perfect pint glass.
A - Clear straw gold with a large fluffy, but short lived, white head. Lots of streaming bubbles.
S - Sweet malts, corn, slight grassy hops. Not offensive, but very subtle/neutral.
T - Bready malt, light toasted grain, corn syrup, and a hint of grassy hops. Overall rather sweet, but there is a faint hop bitterness that kicks in towards the finish.
M - Relatively smooth, very light body (but not as watery as other adjunct lagers). High carbonation, crisp and refreshing.
O - This a decent 'bargain' lager that tends to beat out the other mainstream competitors. It's light on flavor with a thin body, but it's a great cheap year-round session beer to pick up when spending is tight.
