I'm not sure where the hate for this beer is coming from. It's a smooth golden lager that looks very appealing in my stein/mug. The head diminished to about a half inch and remains throughout. Mouthfeel is thin, but with a clean finish. Definitely some hop undertones with good carbonation. Just a simple AAL. Nothing to offended by.

Haven't had this in years.

Drinking from the can because it's not worth putting in a glass.

Aroma and taste are the standard light lager notes of corn, rice, light malt sweetness and some metallic astringency.

The palate is light and clean with a bit of lingering maltiness.

Overall this is not the worst light lager I've had but definitely would not be my first choice.

Cheap light beer. Not a lotta smell, not a lotta taste, though not repulsive like some beers at this price point. Yellow and very foamy. Honestly my favorite cheap beer, and favorite light beer overall.

This is probably the best light beer I have had, I would normally drink this after I ran out of better beers as my friend used to keep a case in the fridge. There is nothing special here, just a beer to keep a buzz going.

A - clear yellow fizzy beer, white head. Like piss. But exactly what it's supposed to be.
S - big corn, rice, light grains, wheat bread, chemical alcohol smell
T - big corn, rice, light grains, dirt, wheat bread, also very chemical in taste
M - I don't know if I'd call it light, more like plug your nose and chug, alcohol covered, aftertaste is bitter undefined dirt
O - just give me a Milwaukees beast Ice already, this shots no better and likely is much worse. Not worth the 3 dollars a six pack.

This is my 57 year old aunts go to beer. You can catch her at 9 am on Wednesday rolling around in a golf cart with 2 cases ready to tackle the day.

To me it taste like urine.

Usually drink Miller lite however mowed a neighbors grass and he brought this out and I couldn't tell the difference in it and Miller lite out of a can, bottle Miller lite is a lil smoother. Like the price, no hangover or craps the next day after drinking 12 so all is good!
