12oz. from where ever poured into a pils

A: For lack of better wording...this really does look like piss. Only other way to describe the color is slightly darker than your average American light lager macro. Next to no head retention and very minimum lacing.

S: Not much. Lightly of corn.

T/M: FOR THE STYLE, I have to say this is probably the best tasting(Doesn't mean I have to give it a 5 :P ). Corn. Extremely light bodied. Way too much carbonation.

D: This is my session beer of choice. When I'm out dive hopping, this is the best. Could pound these all night without stopping.

I had to review this beer because before I ever knew what real beer was this is what I drank maybe once every two months.... I have to say never really liked the big boxed brands in general but Miller light was the best of the bunch... drinkable, clean and not much if any aftertaste. I would not recommend. Try good beer. Bit if you drink a 24 pack a day than drink something that resembles plain water and not skunk.

Had a few cans left over after a party at my place, figured its a beer(ish) might as well review it.

A: pours a crystal clear golden color with a giant white head that reduces to absolutely nothing. not a bad looking lager, but nothing spectacular.

S: smells a lot like metal, not much else, corn, not much else. typical light lager.

T: really watery, there is a faint taste of barely, mostly corn, but really this isn't that offensive of a beer, and for a the price i can see why a lot of people drink it.

M: thin, crisp, watery, bubbly, clean finish, pretty typical, begs for another drink with how crisp it finishes

D: i can drink a lot of this beer, its not the best tasting thing in the world, but it isn't that bad. definitely a bar beer when nothing else is available.

This is one of those "punch-top" cans. It's a good marketing gimmick, not sure how useful it is unless you suck the can when you drink..

Smell is water, grain, corn, rice? Taste is like regular miller with the already lackluster taste zapped out. Seriously, the big tastes here are metallic water, carbonation, and a hint of grain and corn... in that order. Highly carbonated and extremely drinkable as long as you want a watery refresher, not a flavorful beer.

Best thing I can say about this is that it's inoffensive, drinkable, and has alcohol in it.

Might as well review a classic. Appearance had some promise: very large frothy head, but no real lacing, just huge bubbles across the head. Eventually, the head dissipates. The beer itself was a clear yellow appearance with an obvious watery aspect. Aromas are extremely minimal. Metallic yeasts and slight bread, but really artificial and strong mineral flavoring. The taste was really just awful. Watery, metal-like, lacking any hop or malt textures. Mouthfeel had some saving grace. This is definitely a typical beer you can just sit around and drink, especially on a warm day. Overall, without being offensive, the beer can please most palates. Yet its generalness lacks any spectacular qualities of a good beer.
