Looks clear light yellow. Pours a thick white head.

Smells a little grassy.

Tastes a little tart up front. A little hop/grass note in the middle, and when savored it has little a extra burn,something like lemon pepper, but very weak. Mildly sweet corn at the end with something extra, a little note that reminds me of a sour mash whisky.

Feels light and watery, but that's not necessarily bad. Chugs nicely

Overall, I think that this is one of the better American Adjunct Lagers, one of the more interesting ones from out of that group. It's also easy to pound. For what it is, I think it's a winner. And I base my scores based on comparison to other American Adjuncts.

A: Clear, straw yellow with small white and soapy head that surprisingly leaves a moderate amount of lacing down the glass.
S: Grainy and sweet, though not as much as normal Bud or Miller.
T: Sweet ricey and grainy flavor. But slightly more crackerish and maybe bitter than a normal Miller.
M: Light bodied and sessionable.
O: Maybe my new favorite American adjunct, but probably not. Good, but not the champagne of beers.

Didn't pour in a glass, it's a clear glass bottle. Nice water straw golden color. Looks kind of like a bottle of pee pee. On the nose you get sweet boiled corn and some musty grains, no hop character. Smells like a sweet adjunct lager. Taste follows the nose, corny, grainy and sweet. The high carbonation tickles the tongue a bit and adds to the finish that is actually reminiscent of a champagne. Mouth feel is thin and a bit watery, with some pretty heavy carbonation. Very refreshing. Overall, even though there's a stigma about beer like this, I like it. This is an enjoyable beer and you could pound them all day no problem. Good hot day / lawnmower beer!

Pretty good for what it is.. $1.80 per quart..

Its the usual sweet corny macro but there is just a hint of hops in high life..

For the price I would say its hard to beat for a summer beer.
