3.49/5  rDev +67%
look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.75

Hop heads beware, this refreshing light lager has none detectable. Drinks like an iced tea on a hot summers day, malty sweetness and a steamed rice aftertaste. Absolutely no bitterness. If I had to rate this beer on price alone I would give it a perfect 5. Reminds of what BL tasted like back in 1984 minus the beechwood. Considering the level of sweetness, I was not surprised to see 113 cal per 12 ounce on the label.

Just finished a 30 pack and picked up another for $12. You can drink 6 of these while watching the Weber smoker all afternoon and fell less inebriated than a couple of 6% ABV beers. It drinks like the 3.2 ABW beers I had in Colorado from the grocery stores.

Consumed from the can multiple times.

very cheap. $3.00 for a six pack and about $11 for a 30 pack.

Appearance: Only poured it out once because let's face it, this is definitely meant to be consumed by the can. When I did pour it out it was a very pale yellow color. Light passes through very easily and reveals a clean, bubbly, hay colored brew. A rocky head dissipated within seconds and fizzes into almost nothing.

Smell: Don't really get too much of anything. What you do is corn, a very tad bit of hop and a little bit of drying fruitiness. Almost like a champagne or light fruit wine.

Taste: Very light and crisp. I didn't find anything offensive about it. It is very, very dry though. A lot of people may not be into that, luckily I am. Very much so. Corn and very little stale malt up front, a bit of very light used up hops in the middle towards the end and then that fruity dryness which I really enjoy.

Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated. I think it really compliments the brew though. Watery of course, it's a light beer.

Overall this is no amazing brew and many have called it absolutely horrid. I on the other hand really enjoy this because I am very much into cheap, dry beers. I do and will continue to seek it out. For it's price, it's pretty good. Just give it a try.
