Some mild malt sweetness up front, not much else here apart from beery throughout. Adjuncts low but there, otherwise, it was pretty good for a macro.

look: 1.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.5

Super weak and thin mild yellow appearance, 1/2" white head vanishes before your eyes. Aroma was water, corn, metal.

Taste actually establishes itself as a not terrible light adjunct lager. Even a mild hop note or two at most. Nothing terrible about it other than its appearance. Mouthfeel is light and highly carbonated.

Tailgate stuff, 5% abv for a light beer is actually substantial.

I remember getting this beer for $8 a 12-pack and using it in the water-bath of my BBQ smoker when I made ribs. I'd use 7-9 beers in the water-bath, so what wasn't used there was consumed with the meal.

Fond memories might make this beer rate higher than it should but maybe not. I remember it being a light beer that didn't taste light, and was still better than most of the schiessebier BMC makes (even though it is ultimately a Miller product.)

I'd like to try a bottle now... just for comparo.
