Poured from a 12 oz can into a 14 oz "pint" glass. Pours a transparent straw color with a large white head that dissipates quickly and disappears. Smells of cereal grain and corn, no hops at all. Tastes of corn and grain, not much in the ways of hops, and very bland but not watered down. Carbonation is heavy like most macros but it is very smooth for its light body. Overall, slightly below average beer.

It has been a while since I had a MGD but my wife bought some so... I really enjoy this beer. In the Budmillercoors style this is my current favorite. It struck me as maltier than I remembered and reminded me of the all-malt Miller Reserve they made back in the 80's.

It is true to the style, light bodied, balanced, nothing really standing out except for the malt taking a half-step foreward.The appearance is expected, light golden showcased in the clear bottle.

I used to drink these fairly regularly, they were a "cool" beer when I was younger, likely solely because they came in a clear bottle.

Very pale, clear yellow with soft white head that is gone quickly.

smell is sweet cereal with a lot of corn and some skunk.

taste is very grainy with some hops on the finish

light body, medium carbonation, bitter finish.

It's not bad, but not something I go for often these days.

A: A gentle "pssst" as the cap twists off. A light pale straw color, with brilliant clarity. White head on top, but it fades into the body of the beer fairly quickly.

S: Sweet at first, then a little vegetable or possibly corn. A touch of bread and a bit of flour.

T: Fairly light, with some biscuit flavors. Light, with a little vegetable flavor, the aftertaste has perhaps a touch of tin to it.

M: Light, and bubbly.There is a bit of a carbonic bite to it, but other than that it is fairly thin. There is something weird about the mouthfeel. It almost feels like it is dissolving the enamel.

O: Overall fairly middle of the road. No major attractors or detractors. Fairly bland, but isn't that in the style description?
