Upon pouring well, it pours a one finger white fluffy head. The body is a golden yellow color with bubbles in all areas rising to the top. The head disspiates relatively quickly but leaves a great amount of lacing leaving good signs. in the appearance.

The smell is not too strong but of barley, grain, and water. maybe hops. The smell is not strong but pleasing.

The taste is of barley, grain and hops. leaving a nice aftertaste and feeling. It is very refreshing, I can pound this beer any time.

The feel is smooth with a good amount of carbonation.

Relating this beer to other mass produced adjuncts, it is extremely flavorful and refreshing.

On tap at the AH Americsn Legion # 208. Served in a plastic cup. Light yellow color. Clear. Forms a bubbly white head that quickly reduces to a patchy surface coating. Smells of grain and corn. Taste is more of the same: sweet, corny, and grainy with just hint of toasty bitterness. Light bodied with a "mealy" mouthfeel Heavy carbonation. Overall a standard shitty American brew.

Pours a transparent dull yellow with a little white head which disapeared un seconds.

The smell is sweet and corny. Its pretty bad but at least it's pretty subdued.

The taste is sweet and also corn like. To be fair I can taste some malts in there as well. The taste isn't great but better than the smell.

The mouth feel is light and medium carbonated.

Overall smells terrible but tastes a little better, not that bad if you're looking for a cheap party beer othetwise I'd skip this.

Drank straight from the bottle. A dehydrate urine type of yellow, Standard of most Adjunct Lagers so nothing special going on there. There isn't very much to say about the smell either, Smells of some corn and perhaps some barley here and there. The taste is where this AAL surprised me. Easily the best offering from the Miller company that I have had to date, Perhaps slightly beating High Life. It doesn't just taste of carbonated water like most other standard AAL's and it is very easy to drink. Mouthfeel has some bubbles and a cooked corn aftertaste, Though sweet corn. Over all a great AAL

Offered a can of this and considered it worth the tick.

A - Well it's darker than I expected but still very "piss" like in color. Head surprised me a bit sticking around for a few minutes before reducing to nothing. Bubbly carbonation.

S - Smell is as expected for an adjunct lager. Corn being the only notable smell next to some sweet malts. As expected no hops in the smell, just corn...

T - Well it wasn't as bad as I thought (how many people have posted that?) Amway you do get acres of corn, lager yeasts and well... water. I swear halfway through the beer just tasted like water which I am sure if you slam them like water it's good for you but it didn't impress me a whole lot. This beer needs triple hopped :P

M - Well I don't post this much but this beer is thin and watery, so not that great.

Overall I guess I have found a very lackluster beer even for an adjunct lager. Giving this more than an average score is like calling yourself an alcoholic.
