I honestly don't have a clue what the recipe is for this beer, and I don't care to find out. Smells and tastes like year old corn sileage. I don't know if hops were added, maybe they found a variety that also smells of rotting corn. Pale straw yellow, inadequate carbonation, strong malt taste for the style, but frankly, not very good.

Poured from a 16 OZ can into a pint glass. The appearance is a pale light golden color with a small white head. The aroma is all grain. The taste is grain and corn with some mild carbonation. If you are going to power-drink this should be the beer you choice to do it with.

Geezer beer.

Being a geezer myself, I know whereof I speak. Sometimes I think Miller has a basic beer that is packaged and sold under different labels for those of us who tend to buy "our brand" over and over. Nothing wrong with this package, light color, flavor, clean fizzy beer for when you want to drink a beer without analyzing it.

Buy when it's on sale which happens often.

Clarity is excellent. Golden straw color with lots of bubbles. Nice head of creamy off white foam that lasted well. Practically no nose. Low malty presence on the nose that becomes more grainy as it warms. Faint hint of dms. No hops presence on the nose at all. Light fruity ester from yeast. No diacetyl. Taste is light and I mean thin. Light corn sweetness. It has low malty flavor, some dms, a little bite from bubble and low to no hops presence on the palate. There is a good balance and a finishing bitterness. This malt is crisp and very thin. No diacetyl.
