look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3

Appearance - Poured aggressively, this crystal clear, pale yellow brew formed a white, half finger head with sub-par retention. Fair lacing with good stick.

Smell - Predominant malt sweetness. Grainy.

Taste - Slightly sweet to start, then finishes with prominent grain character. Simple. Not much flavor... but nothing offputting, either.

Mouthfeel - Light, watery, slightly fizzy. Drinkable, in the least.

Overall - A lot better than what I remember, which has got to be a good 8 or so years. Still, not a beer I'd buy unless options were severely limited... like 'on a deserted island' limited. Alright, maybe not that bad, but you get the point.

24 oz can poured into a pilsener glass

A- Pours a light gold, very clear with a lot of active carbonation. About one and half fingers worth of head that dissipates quickly. Surprisingly, it left some lacing on the glass.

S- Not much going on here. A little bit of a malty, bread, and faint hint of alcohol smell.

T- Light malt flavor. No real complex flavors here but it is smooth.

M- Really enjoyable mouthfeel. It truly does have a champagne mouthfeel to it and this make the beer very enjoyable for me. It has a very smooth, crisp finish.

O- Not a beer with much depth, but for a lighter cheaper beer, I think it is very tasty. I will continue buying because it is cheap and widely available.
