3/5  rDev +19.5%
look: 4 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

Poured from can into a pint glass

Appearance –Pours a light straw color with a big billowy white head. The head has a surprisingly nice level of retention slowly fading over time to leave a rather decent level of lacing on the sides of the glass.

Smell – The aroma is quite basic and consists mostly of some sweet corn malt smells as well as some light bready aromas. Mixed with the rest is also a very light papery smell.

Taste – Overall the taste is very light and watery. The taste begins with a lighter corn and bready flavor. The corn flavor is actually quite a bit lighter then would have been expected from the nose. As the taste advances these two flavors remain relatively constant but are, at the end, joined by a light caramel sweetness, a light papery taste, and a tiny bit of citrus. Overall it leaves a rather dry and crisp taste on the tongue.

Mouthfeel –The body of the beer is very low in terms of thickness with a carbonation level that is average to above average. Quite appropriate for the style, although even more carbonation may have been better for the very light flavors and drinkability of the beer.

Overall – If you are looking for something light then this is your choice. It’s flavors are super mellow, it is very watery,highly drinkable, and decently refreshing.

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

Poured into an IPA glass because of reasons.

Look: An amorous golden body with quaint and timely rising bubbles. A perfectly white fizzy head fizzes out and disappears! No lacing, none. Perfectly mediocre.

Aroma: Metal, aluminum, titanium, steel.

Taste: Amazingly metallic! Watery.

Mouthfeel: Seltzer.

Overall: Incredibly bland, normal, perfectly average.

Nothing like a can of fresh toilet water to make your day shine but to be serious I have had many great times hanging with friends while drinking this beer so out of respect for old mil light and all the great times and memories I have been given I wanted to give this beer a good review.
