Pours a light straw gold with a quickly-dissipating white head. Smells of nothing but a corn and malt mix. Tastes just the same. Very light bitterness towards the end of swallow, but more or less just a carry over of the corn and bready taste. Lingers on the palate, and not in a good way. This is just another light lager to avoid.

My go to macro lager. Good substitute for water while mowing the grass, or settling in after a few stiff IPAs. Will not win many awards, but I prefer its taste to most readily available domestic lagers.

Good summer beer. Women will usually drink this if they don't like beer very much.

Pours a pale straw yellow with a small white head. Smells of grain. Tastes very watery with some bread, and maybe mild mild hops. Light body and medium carbonation. Overall it doesn't necessarily taste bad, but that's because it doesn't taste like much.

In the world of light beers, this is one of the more drinkable ones. The flavor is slightly more complex with malts, corn, a sweetness that I can not identify and some grassy notes. Light bodied, light mouth feel, finishes moderately dry, moderate carbonation.

In a blind taste test between Coors Light, Miller Lite, and, Bud Light at a recent bottle share, Coors Light was the clear winning with some actual taste including a hint of hop bitterness. Miller came in second on because Bud Light had no apparent flavor or body. Bud LIght is by far the worst.

So I reviewed Coors lite earlier because I am working my way through a bunch of leftover beers from a party at my place this weekend. It was awful. This is just a step above awful. Pours no head at all. Crisp first taste of sweet and corn. Corn finish with some kind of metallic/bread flavor. Coors light is horrid. This is a step above. Lets call it disgraceful instead.

I'm reviewing just for the fun of it. This actually isn't the worst of the macros I'd rather have this than Budweiser. Just had one with my dad whose in his 70s so he won't have a craft New England IPA. So I rated this kinda harsh because I did finish it without a problem. It wasn't the worst I've ever had. It might actually be my favorite macro but that's not saying much. Just that it's the best of the worst. If craft beer isn't your thing I'd recommend.

This beer pours a clear pale straw color with lots of active carbonation. It almost looks watery. There is a two finger dense yet fizzy bright white head. Retention is pretty minimal and there are a few spots of lacing left on the glass.

Smell is sooo bland. Grain, corn, a touch of bread, and a hint of grassy/floral hop aroma.

Taste is the same. Boring and bland.

Feel is light and smooth. Moderate carbonation, but still feels watery.

Overall this beer is not good. It used to be my weapon of choice throughout my high school years. I actually thought it was a good beer compared to the keystones and beast ices that were a mainstay of most of the parties back then. I haven't touched the stuff in ~12 years and wanted to see if I would still enjoy it, even if it was only nostalgic. Obviously things have changed quite a bit, because even on a hot day I wouldn't enjoy this. I'd rather a real example of a pilsner with some flavor, a craft lager or a gose.

Sorry. I like the adjunct corn taste. My favorite light beer.
