3.54/5  rDev +55.9%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with almost no head.. Barely any lacing present either.

Smell - Strong scent of corn. Has a nice sweetness to it and seems very malty.

Taste - Identical to the smell. The malt tastes very good.. Corn is the strongest flavor. It's quite sweet and the hops are mild. It does have a slight metallic flavor.

Mouthfeel - Light in body with high carbonation. It's very crisp.

Overall - This is better than I thought it was going to be. It's very drinkable, but nothing special.

I am starting to appreciate this beer.

It is a simple, basic beer. Easy to drink and goes great with any type of food.

On a 95 degree day, served ice cold it really hits the spot.

For a back yard BBQ beer, it is perfect.

So why all the haters?

Nothing wrong with enjoying a beer for what it is.

High Life is cheaper, and a better value, but MGD is still very enjoyable.

look: 3 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 1 | feel: 1.5 | overall: 1.5

Pours a clean pale yellow color with a white head. In the aroma, a small sweetness and a small skunkiness. In the taste, a small sweetness in the malt and then nothing. A small bite and a lighter bodied mouthfeel, with a small dry to sweetness in the aftertaste. Watery and a sweetness and really not much going on.

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a pint glass. No explanation needed.

Appearance – Clear golden color with a flimsy white head that quickly dissipates leaving no lacing. No suprises.

Smell – Corn, a little barley, tin?

Taste – For an adjunct lager, a frat beer, a regular old American beer, MGD really isn’t that bad. Corn, a hint of hop, a little malt for body.

Mouthfeel – Highly carbonated, light body, no finish taste

Overall – Not a bad brew for what its’ worth. I try not to be a beer snob. Is this beer bad compared to what else is out there? Yes. But relatively speaking, its’ drinakable. I Would buy it again and drink it again. Its’ a good change of pace from Bud Diesel and Coors, and a hell of a lot better than its’ lite counterpart.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into Samuel Adam's pint glass.

Appearance: Pours a clear golden with a half-finger white head that fizzes down quickly. Mild lacing, but more than I was expecting.

Smell: Metal and corn, mild barley

Taste: It's your average AAL, except it's more metallic. Corny adjuncts, mild, mild hops. It'd be average if it weren't for the extra metal taste. I expect that taste in most AALs; this one just has a bit more.

Mouthfeel: Light body, high carbonation, chugger.

Overall: Slightly below average overall, but it's pretty much your standard BMC product, nothing special at all.
