Clear, pale straw color with a thick white head that leaves decent lacing. Light crisp, grassy hops in the aroma with just a kiss of malt sweetness. Much stronger corn sweetness in the taste than the nose suggests. That's the defining character with just a hint of hop bitterness behind. Light bodied with good carbonation in the feel. As a pilsner, this is awful, but as a light lager it's fine. Light, refreshing, just a bit too corny.

This beer pours a golden yellow, but very yellow with a short white head. The aroma is of all cheap beers, very low amounts of mild hops and a bit of malt. The two indredients are blended together pretty well, but since the taste is so bland that is not very hard to do. It has a nice carbonated feel to it because it does not have much flavor. I like this one better than most beers in its category and it's worth a try. The beer is a bit expensive, but it is worth a shot to see why it won as many awards as it has.

put some in the fridge for my father and brother for christmas. unfortunately, they didn't drink them all. i figured i'd have a couple to get them out of there faster. now i remember why i haven't had one in a long, long time. typical light, american macro-brew. bland watery flavor (if you can call it that). way too carbonated. reminds me of the swill i used to chug before concerts in high school.

This is just an awful beer. I have drank a lot of this beer over time, but only for tailgates and parties. It is by far the worst of the major light lagers in my opinion.

It pours a pale, corn-silk yellow. Little head appears, and in no time there's no trace of any at all.

It smells as light as it should, I suppose, as in very little aroma. What's there is slightly sweet and stale.

There's a very mild grain component in the flavor, with little hop presence of any value. There's the mass-produced shadow of adjuncts lurking all about every taste.

There's little more texture or character than seltzer water. The carbonation is a plus, but the slick and vanishing feel is a considerable negative.

OK, it's a light beer, and that's the bottom line here. You can drink dozens, but my point is, why? To get drunk? I can't think of any reason why I would have another short of my brother pleading me to have one with him, and even then he'd have to sound as pathetic as he did last night. This is a solid no-go for me, though I suppose the drinkability will lead some to senseless abuse.
