24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 6/4/2018. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and fluffy white head with good retention, that reduces to a small cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light corn/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. A touch of fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with pale malt/grains and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light corn/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, spicy bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light corn/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice robustness and balance of pale malt/grains and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; with a great malt/bitterness balance, and zero cloying/astringent flavors after the finish. Moderately crisp/clean finishing. Perfectly clean on lager flavors, with zero yeast notes present. Light-moderate increasing dryness from bitterness and carbonation. Medium-high carbonation and medium body; with a very smooth, moderately bready/grainy, and fairly sticky balanced mouthfeel that is great. Zero warming alcohol as expected of 5%. Overall this is a nice pale adjunct lager. All around nice obustness and balance of pale malt/grains and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and not watery for the ABV. Very clean pale malt/grain flavors, and nice earthy hop presence for the style. Really nice barley presence, and not overdone on adjuncts at all. A nicely enjoyable offering, and well made style example as expected of Miller.

Appearance – Clear yellow beer with a thin layer of head.

Aroma – Light hoppiness but not very distinctive.

Taste – Funky, like a draft beer in a keg. Not sour funky, more like a little old or lightstruck.

Mouthfeel – Somewhat thin.

Overall – Not a great beer by any means

This beer was my first beer at some college bar in Northridge, CA many moons ago. Hey, I was 18 and just starting to explore the beer world. So... The color is a straw yellow. Carbonation was practically non-existent. The nose was basically like corn meets the smell of cut grass; that was sitting in the lawnmower over the weekend. Taste... well, there is a reason that this beer is weak. The taste was water mixed with a bland element of corn flakes. Very little else. Sad. Mouthfeel is watery with nearly no carbonation. Overall, not a strong beer.

Pours a golden straw yellow. Thick creamy head that dissipates quickly. Smells of corn and not really much else. Tastes almost the same with a very watery mouthfeel. What can I say about the beer that everyone has had? It's not good. It's not even really bad. But it's a throwback to the 90's and tastes more of nostalgia than flavor. Not really good for a hearty tasting event, but if you are just looking to drink cheaply tonight, this beer is for you.

It's cheap, and it comes in big cans. If you just want to get sloshed cheaply, it's there for you. You can do worse on a budget.

The worst beer I've ever come across. Will never buy it again. If it was in my fridge, I'd probably throw it out to make room for Busch Light. It's that bad.
