So I am in Ruston, Louisiana and wanted to have a beer in the hotel and the gas station across the street had limited options. I never drank a lot of this, although it was always around.

Yes, it is corny and bland, but it is not offensive and quite easy to drink. I can see why unimaginative people flock to ths. It would require a ton of them to get a solid buzz, but would not require much work.

One of the fairly decent adjunct beers of the macro mill.
Look is a golden yellow.Fizzy white head that dissapates down rather quickly.
Smell is of grains,and corn, mildy skunky, but taste isn't what you expect by the smell.

Taste is watered down of course, but there is pleasant sweetness, with a slighty bitter hopiness. Feel is mild carbonation. Thin and watery.

Now, this not a beer i think of when i think of a great beer. However, its good on a hot lazy summer day floating the river or mowing the grass. You can really pound these down, espicially if its on tap. And thats it. If i want to sitdown and relax, id go to my IPAs or begium ales. But like i said, on a hot day in the sun,this would be my go to beer for that time.
It's simply a no frills beer that will get the job done, but nothing to rave about.

Comparing only NA beers, BUD Light and Miller Lite, not my favorite Sierra Nevada Pale Ale.
The color was a nice golden yellow.
This beer poured with a 2 finger head.
It gave off a nice light beer aroma from the head.
The taste was that of beer malt and hops flavored seltzer water.
The overall taste and body was that that of a light beer with a slight taste of corn

Sometimes you just need a few around when friends and family stop over. Certainly not the beer you long for, however it is a beer that others recognize and will drink without complaint. Best words to describe: cheap, plentiful, popular, slightly above average, and its beer.

Not too bad when it's free.

Looks very clear even for a light pilsner. Not much of a smell until you start drinking it or pour it into a glass. Taste is as expected for the price. Very watered down.
