A - Pours a dark golden-bronze with a very thin white head that disappates quickly and leaves no lacing.

S - Smells pretty much like a box of cheerios. No adjuncts, just grains.

T - Follows the nose. This is the grainiest tasting beer that I have ever had. It's blander than cheerios ( If that is even possible ).

M - Medium body with medium carbonation. Leaves a funky aftertaste.

O - Overall, If I had a choice between this and Bud Light, I would take Bud Light anyday. This is one of the most unpleasant beers I have ever had. A wee bit of creamed corn may have saved it ( Now that's saying something! ) But it never comes and stays all grain.

Poured into a dimpled beer mug from a 24 oz. can.

This is the 4th beer in my hunt for America's great American adjunct style lagers, or piss beers.

A-Pure straw yellow in color. actually, the appearance was about the best thing this beer had going on. It poured a 1/2 inch bubbly head that dissipated into a thin bubbly surface, which left some lace on the glass. I was surprised for a light beer!

S-some grain, some malt, some piss.

T-Some piss, some tap water, some soda water. Perhaps some grainy-sweetish-malt in the aftertaste.

M-very wet and it felt like carbonated water. High carbonation.

Overall, I buy this when I want to save a little cash or if I am experimenting, for example: trying to find a great American Adjunct lager. This is definitely on the low end, but I would buy on occasion during the summer.

If you are going to drink a light beer then this is the best one I found so far based on calories per alcholol content and overall taste. Let's face it a light beer will never compete with most good regular beers but if you want a few and are counting calories this is my number 1 in the low calorie category. My regular staple.
