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.

My favorite lite beer, I like my Dogfishead 60 and 90 IPAs. I like Sam Adams Lager. But this beer will get the job done (buzz) and tastes ok and won't fill me up on a night out where I plan on drinking many beers...

Tall tap--the only reason to drink this near as I can tell. I'm trying this for the first time in three years just to see what I've been "missing"

Pours very clear and straw-colored with a pedestrian head

Smells like--beer, more or less. Grainy sweetness with a hint of hops and very subdued. Some grassy and hoppy notes, but zero complexity.

Taste is classic light adjunct lager. CORN not wheat or barely, regardless of ingredients. Metallic, sweet, and highly carbonated.

Thin mouthfeel, but very crisp and carbonated. The best aspect of this beer. I have to admit, it is very light and easy to drink.

Overall--typical frat boy meat market dorm beer.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy white head. Smells like grainy corn. Taste is the same. The aftertaste has a skunky bitter taste. Mouthfeel is very watery. Overall, it's actually one of the better light beers.
