Single finger white frothy head with nice lacing on a state to bright golden clear body. Aroma is pretty bad with mostly pale malts/barley and musty wet sock hops. A lot of malt in the flavor with mild bitterness from the hops and little in the way of sweetness. Light to medium body but still fairly oily coating the palate and moderate carbonation. I think miller is the worst of the big three for flavors and drinkability. This one reinforces that belief.

24 oz. can into a mason jar. Pours clear, muted urine-sample yellow with the metallic, slightly malty fragrance common to American macro lagers. Watery and bubbly in the mouth. Little taste to speak of, but lightly sweet, lightly bitter and very easy to drink. An inoffensive, crisp, cheap beer that is better than other beers at its price point.

Pours out to a sudsy white head that falls to a permanent 3mm head, significant lacing and pale yellow-gold color. Aroma is sweet, grainy, grassy and slightly skunky. Flavor is a weak mixture of sweet, grainy, corny, and slight tinge of over processed hops. Mouthfeel is light, carbonation generous and rather watery. On the balance, this is a marginally decent adjunct lager and reminds me a bit of Corona.

Pours a pale straw yellow.

Toast and bread like subtle sweetness.

Biscuity and toast like malt backbone. Water.

Light-bodied, high carbonation, crisp, watery.

Overall, straight up no flavor just water.
