Poured into pilsener glass, had it about a year ago but wrote down my thoughts.

Appearance: Very clear yellow, some carbonation bubbles and a very weak head. No lacing.

Smell: It is very faint and very dry, but it can be detected. I am not very good at analyzing the characteristics of such a light beers aroma so I will stay away from any specific ingredients. I will say however that there is no hop aroma at all, and perhaps the main characteristics are a blend of over processed flavors from the malt.

Taste: Also very dry like the aroma, but more about the beer can be picked up in the taste. Although it is more noticeable, I will refrain from stating any individual ingredients I sense still, they are very well blended together. I am quite amazed how much this does not taste like beer, there is very little in the way of detectable features that would suggest that it is.

Mouthfeel: It is well carbonated, and that does a pretty good job of masking and flavors that are there. After a few of these, it is almost like drinking carbonated water.

Overall: This is not a beer, I refuse to acknowledge this being classified as a beer. That is not to say that it does not have an appeal, I can see why it is so popular. There is nothing off putting about its taste, and it is quite refreshing on a hot day, especially with a lime wedge. But after really analyzing the taste, I can not acknowledge this beverage being a beer, it has less than the bear essentials for being classified as such. Therefore I refuse to give it anything above the minimum score.

A- Thin fizzy head on an extremely clean medium pale body. Leaves a ring around the collar but that's it as far as head retention. No lacing.

S- What's there of the smell is kind of off-putting.

T- Not much of a flavor...pale malts, a touch of bright citrus, corn? Hops are where? Clean aftertaste, perhaps the best aspect of this beer.

M- Highly carbonated. Medium to medium-thin mouthfeel.

D/O- Below average thirst quencher/get hammered beer. "Nasty" compared to what I like to drink, yes, but nothing that is so gross that you need to pour out the bulk of, which I've done with others. Easy tick of the #1 "Bottom of the List" beer....here's to never having this beer again :p
