Why? The color is goldish. No head or lacing. The nose like a factory. Metal meets Ford's assembly line. The taste has a paucity of flavor but it has a clean finish. You get the corn and the metal. Too much water. Overall, why?

Light yellow color with diminishing white cap.

Mild flavor of clean grain with the faintest hint of floral hops.

It tastes like a light beer which is to say hope is dashed if you were hoping for more. It actually has a good deal less flavor than Sam Adams Light, Yuengling Light, or suchlike, yet what little it has is very clean from start to finish.

Light texture with balancing carbonation.

Other than it may be available or on sale I really can't see any reason to move this one above it's brethren on the totem pole yet the only real negative is the lack of positives.

This is one of the better light beer I have had, it leaves nice lacing in the glass, It is a little too carbonated for my taste. This is worth a try as to me it is better than Miller light

Clear light golden color with a quickly dissipating soapy white head. Lots of carbonation clinging to the glass with a bunch of streaming bubbles.

Smell is sweet bread maybe some biscuits as well. Smell was a bit soapy smelling in an odd way.

Taste is very watery with a beer flavor in the background. Just not a large flavor profile on this one.

Mouth feel is watery and refreshing with a crisp finish.

This is not a bad beer when served cold in the can (seems to be the consensus for these light beers). And as long as someone is not looking for a big complex beer, maybe just a cool drink on a hot day, this would work. I have found a lot of these light beers fit that profile of someone just wanting a cold drink that has some beer taste. With low alcohol levels these are also very sessionable and sit a bit better in a persons gut on a hot day. Strange that Miller makes Lite and this beer has much more flavor then High Life Light. I really find that Lite is overall the better of these light beers. Again if you live in a hot ass place like Las Vegas these can work to a certain extent.

It is similar in taste, look & aroma to Bud Light & Coors Light. If you likes those beers, then you will like this one and save money in the process. The price for 30 of these is about the same as for 24 of Bud Light or Coors Light.
