Guess the way to properly rate this beer is out of the 40 oz it comes in.
Clear light amber, cracking the lid reveals moderate carbonation
Smell is slightly stale and a similar sweet light maltiness to high life.
Taste is strong given the low abv. Very malty.
This would be a good beer for you if you like malt liquor but don't want to die after 2 forties

Drank from a 12 ounce glass bottle. Scores are based on the style.

Look - The body label is nice and elegant looking, but I could do without the neck label.

Smell - A sort of dirty wet sweet smell that takes me back to my days of detasseling corn.

Taste - A bizarre salty savory flavor that isn't completely unenjoyable. I haven't tasted anything like this in an AAL before.

Feel - Very carbonated, but not as over the top as High Life.

Overall - A fine and decently enjoyable beer. Very surprising to me.

My favorite beer of all. Always smooth and refreshing. Easy to drink. I love this beer and always have some in the fridge. The cold filtered taste is amazing. Cheers.

MGD is right there with High Life. Sweet, grainy, flavorful and smooth finish. Enjoy quite a bit. Will buy again.

24 ounce can into lager glass, best before 6/11/2018. Pours crystal clear medium golden yellow color with a 1 finger fairly dense and rocky white head with awesome retention, that reduces to a nice cap that lingers. Nice spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a fair amount of streaming carbonation. Fantastic appearance. Aromas of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Touch of fruity aromas, but not overwhelming. Nice and pleasant aromas with pale malt/corn and light-moderate earthy hop notes; with solid strength. Taste of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness. Light-moderate herbal, grassy, peppery bitterness on the finish. Lingering notes of cracker, corn, white bread dough, lightly toasted biscuit, light nuttiness/pepper, and herbal/grassy earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Very nice robustness and balance of pale malt/corn 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 lingering 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 4.7%. Overall this is a very good pale adjunct lager style. All around nice robustness and balance of pale malt/corn and light-moderate earthy hop flavors; very smooth, crisp, clean, and refreshing to drink. Very flavorful and never watery for the ABV. Perfectly clean pale malt/grain flavors, and nice earthy hop presence for the style. Not overdone on adjuncts at all, plenty of barley presence. A very enjoyable offering, and well made style example. Best macro adjunct lager I have tried so far.

Poured from can to tulip. Straw colored, near clear, with a finger or so of fizzy foam that's here and gone. Aromas of corn, cracker, grain, and some grass. Flavor is sweet with a bit of a sour touch that's a bit off-putting. You get the typical sweet AAL corn-and-grain smoothness but then this sour bready note pops up. Finish is clean.
