2.46/5  rDev -8.6%
look: 3 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

A: Light, pale yellow with a large, steady head and lacing that is actually decent

S: Typical grainy, slightly sour and musty aromas from an adjunct lager; lots of corn, grassy, must

T: Not a ton going on here, which is the point--some grainy musty flavors; perhaps a touch of a buttery presence in the finish

F: Light bodied with a touch of stickiness in the back side; but actually somewhat creamy and not over-carbonated like most of the style

O: It is what it is but one of the lesser offensive of the ubiquitous BMC products

12oz can that appeared in my cooler when visiting the in-laws. Red, white & blue 4th of July motif can.

Poured into a glass mug, formed a 1" bright white head over the clear light yellow brew. Airy head collapses slowly, with average lacing. Aroma is bready, slightly floral.

Taste starts lightly sweet, bitterness and some saccharin in the middle, clean finish. Mouthfeel is smooth yet thin, and drinkability is good if this is what you're looking for. Since you bought it, one would think you know what to expect.

poured from a 16oz can.

A: Pale yellow, quickly dissipating head.

S: grassy, a bit sour, grainy.

T: slightly grassy with corn and grains. Light, but not unpleasant.

M: Light body, smooth. As expected, pretty drinkable.

Overall: Certainly nothing special, but not too shabby. Not bad as an economical beer.

I know everyone has had this, but I wanted to review it anyway because this is my go to "backyard beer". Got a 40oz for $2.00 at my local package store.

A: Appearance is of a light straw color with a 1 1/2 in soapy whit head that fades quickly.

S: Smell is of wet wheat grass, some bitter sweet malts, and maybe some corn or rice in there.

T: A little malty, some sweet corn taste and some grain flavor with a crisp finish.

M: Medium carbonation, only drinkable if cold. As soon as this beer warms up, it falls apart.

O: For an American adjunct lager, its not a bad beer at all. Better drinking it out of the bottle than a glass. Good beer for after a had days work in the summertime!
