Pours a clear light yellow with small fading white head. Lots of rapid bubble movement.

Smells of grain and crackers with some metallic fruitiness.

Taste is on par for an adjunct lager. Minimal flavor with some wet cereal and stale hop.

Thin, watery, overcarbonated.

Yeah well, ya know..I drink this more than I should.

Consumed directly from a 12 oz bottle at my niece's 1st birthday party. Ah, the High Life. My privileges have not yet been revoked.

A) A very clear looking golden fleece. Ample bubbles upon opening. Unable to comment on the head, retention and lacing.

S) Deeply inhaling from the bottle, I found the aroma to be mostly grain, corn and minute rice. A little sweetness.

T) Better than the nose. Corn and grain. There is a little bit of white bread, not much malt, but some sweetness. The finish is very light hops.

M) Pretty light with a good amount of carbonation. It's actually fairly smooth, and has a refreshing quality to it.

O) For the style, this is pretty good. I don't mind a bottle or two of these. Unfortunately, whatever they put in this brew will usually lead to a headache for me, if I hit the 4-5 range.

This might be a popular choise for say college students because it is cheap. By no means do I think it is that good just a less expensive knock off than miller lite. Hops are non existant faint taste of corn. Easy to drink beer. Poor choice unless you are looking for a cheap and easy drunken binge. nothing great

this was poured into a wine glass. It gave a two finger head. The color of the head was white. entirely white and foamy. the head laces and dissipates into a one finger head quickly. The color of the body is a golden pale. It looks good and appetizing as bubbles rise to the top.

It smells like a lot of corn. It smells like a good amount of corn. thats all I pick up.

It tastes like a lot of corn also. Maybe a little bit of hops. Its tastes like corn and a bit of hops making a nice tasting lager. I really like this among the other adjunct lagers. It taste good and is refreshing to those that like a good lager that has corn flavor and smell.

The moutfeel is relatively good. It has some carbonation but not too much that its undrinkable. It is not extremely smooth but its good.

Overall, its great among the adjunct lagers. Its cheap for a 32 ounce container also. If you want to just get drunk but without drinking a nasty beer, this one is good. I like it but its not something that I drink all the time as I like a robust character lager. If you like any of the adjunct lager, try this one. Its a slight step above the rest.
