There's a time and a place. It's not very often and it usually comes cheap.

Poured from 24 oz. can into pint glass. Reviewed to style.

Appearance: Pours a typical pale, crystal clear golden, however, the head is actually a decent two-finger one, and there is spotty lacing left on the glass! Above average for the style in appearance and certainly the best looking out of the BMC lights.

Smell: Faint odor of corn and rice adjuncts, a tiny bit of hops (which is surely a plus!) and a bit of metal. In smell, this is much better than the other BMC lights, but average compared to non-BMC light lagers.

Taste: Starts to go downhill here. There is a very faint taste of corn adjuncts and extremely faint hops. The taste is mainly just water. That's it.

Mouthfeel: Average, which is what it should be! These beers, in my eyes, are meant for days where one wants to get fucked up on light stuff, or for days working under a hot sun. Light and crisp, refreshing, high carbonation, no body.

Overall: Definitely my favorite of the BMC lights and the first one I'd grab out of the three at a gathering. While it's not necessarily good, it's not really bad either. The lack of taste makes it simply a refreshing drink that's a bit more quality than its counterparts.
