Are you joking with some of these reviews?
A lot of you need to stop trying so hard.

L: Pours a golden yellow hue with a two finger satin white head.
S: Corn, a little bit of biscuity malt with a subtle floral undertone. Diacetyl is detectable, but I won't lose sleep over it.
T: Excellent. Biscuity, bready, floral and creamy with notes of roasted corn. No offputting metallic or green apple flavors. Thirst quenching and crushable. Perfect for the style.
F: Creamy but crisp. Effervescent. Body is, again, perfect for the style.
O: Infinitely better if you can get it fresh, and in a can. I will admit, bottles tend to get skunked, although this is only the case if you buy a single 22oz instead of a rack of bottles that come in packaging to keep the light out.

Snobbery aside, this is one of the best light beers on the market.

This was the first beer I ever had and it is still a staple in my fridge.
I've moved on Ales and other dark lagers, but this is always my go-to beer.
Bottle, can, or on-tap I love it all!

Had in a bottle, delivered in a bucket. No Glassware needed!
Cost, $1
Neck - VORTEX!

A:Hazy Straw Yellow

S:Light Hop notes

T:Light and refreshing, slight taste of hops with a crisp clean finish

M:Wow it is nearly as refreshing as water which is what the style is going for.

O:This is the best of the Light Lagers that I have from any of the big guys. As stated, if rating to style, this is one of the top beers in this category... if I want to kick a midget then yes, I'd rate all of the big guys beers with a 1.5... but this one doesn't deserve it.

Amongst macro light beers, this is one of the very few (if not only) that somehow manages to squeeze in a pinch of pilsener/helles-like flavor. Since I appear to alone in rating ML based on the fact that it is light, I proudly recommend this as one of the best in the category. While I've had an occasional micro light lager that surpasses Miller, these have been rare and hard to come by. Obviously, this is not a style commonly braved by craft brewers. Personally, I think this is a pity, as there remains so much unexplored potential... That's right, believe it or not, light beer can actually be good and I challenge any brewers reading this to see if they.have what it takes to manifest such a brew! As it stands, this is pretty much as good as light lagers get. Minus .25 for ad execs spelling like Toys-R-Us kids.
