It tastes better than you remember. Much better than High Life and as easy to drink as Lite.

Has that "copper" taste that is common in this type of beer, but much a much better taste than that other "cardboard" type flavor.

This is an easy beer, while I love the golden look of how it pours and looks in the glass, it is not very refreshing to drink or smell. It has a feel in your mouth that is reminiscent of summer days where you went on a picnic and the sandwiches were hot causing the bread to feel weird. The taste is the same as that, but overly empowering.

Sharp, fizzy alcoholic corn water.

This is the cold filtered, unpasteurized version of High Life.

It is a beautiful lager. Color, clarity, and head are all spot on. Head fades a little too quickly from the adjunct.

Mild, neutral, grainy aroma.

Top quality taste for a high adjunct, pale, American-style lager. The fact that this is not pasteurized is huge. The heat from pasteurization really diminishes the flavor of beer. Drink this side by side with a High Life and taste the difference. It is the same beer! MGD is malty and grainy, but with minimal astringency. The body is smooth but also somewhat rich and satisfying. Bitter, lemony, mild hops linger. Yes there is some corn / grain. But the beer tastes good and fresh and mild.

Mouthfeel is perfect for the style.

Overall pretty damn good and way underrated.

Pale golden color, smell was nearly completely absent (I honestly don't know how to describe what I did smell), taste was nearly completely absent (rice? Corn?). What can you say about a beer when the high light is the carbonation tickle?
