12 oz bottle (could not find date) poured into a shaker pint glass
L: straw/golden w/ lots of streaming bubbles
S: Very, very faint aroma of grains
T: Nothing out of the ordinary, tastes like beer. No bitterness so the ibu would be virtually none
F: Clean, crisp, refreshing. Light & watery
O: Not bad for a light beer. 98 cal, 4.2 % abv or 3.315 abw.
I'd give this beer a low b or a high c but it's not awful. i like regular shiner and lonestar as well.
i don't know why regular beer is scored so low on this site but it is what it is,

121024 printed on bottom of 24oz can poured into teku glass Nov 1, 2023.

Appearance - Clear light gold body. Small one finger white head. Sudsy and somewhat pancake. Decent retention. 3.75

Smell - Light, rounded corn. Faint. Style-appropriate. Maybe a bit floral underneath. It's barely anything at all. 3.75

Taste - Decent balance, if your idea of balance is to have essentially no flavor. It's delicate and light. But I also kind of just want to hate on the style a bit here. 4

Mouthfeel - Light to medium bodied. Mostly because the lack of good effervescence makes it a bit syrupy. 3.75

Overall - So boring. Mostly the style itself but even this n particular as an example of the style. It's not bad. Sessionable, if you want to drink beer that doesn't taste like beer.

One reviewer compared this beer taste to “drinking piss”. I have never drank piss, however I thought this beer was very drinkable. It is light, golden, and has more flavor than most of your usual domestic beers. Either this review is incorrect, or his piss is very delectable.

Great light beer without the typical light beer taste. Has good flavor and color for only 110 calories. It is light so obviously you cannot compare it to a full bodied beer.

Not gonna lie, this beer is probably horrid when paired with nothing. However I’m in Dallas at Terry Black’s BBQ and it is absolutely doing the job. The light crisp sweetness of the beer cleans the palate as I go in for another savory bite of brisket. An excellent warm day option when served ice cold with bbq. Probably no other occasion I’d have it though.

This beer pours a very clear light golden color. The head was 1 finger when poured from the bottle. The retention was good, though, no real lacing on the glass.
The nose is very minimal. Just the faintest hint of a malt/sweetness.
Taste: There's a decent malt bill here, but not much beyond this.
Lighter bodied, but as expected. There is a bubbly feel to this beer.
Easy drinking, and for what it is, not bad at all.

24oz can into a pint glass. Confusing freshness dating seems to indicate canned 7/30/18, but I find that hard to believe, though it was a bit of a gusher.

Looks nice enough in the glass, clear pale golden yellow body, slow streams of carbonation. Bright white head shrinks to a ring and covering, very little lacing.

Faint clean malt aroma.

On tasting, clean, light, sweet, malty, watery.

Mouth between thin and medium, finish clean malt.

Overall, not bad for a light lager. Could likely drink a case of these 24ozers on a hot summer day of yardwork, and still get up for work next morning.

I hate rating beer according to my preference because that is not fair but I really did not like this beer. It taste like piss water.

It has malt and corn taste. I read it has more flavor than most light beers so maybe I shouldn't be so harsh.
But still. Not my style. I will adjust my taste rating a little so I don't drop their ratings but wouldn't drink again if you paid me.

L: Pours piss pale yellow in color with a very thin white head.
S: Smells maltier than most light beers, has a corn aroma as well.
T: Once again, has a maltier taste & more flavor than most light beers, so props on that.
F: Light-bodied, high carbonation, refreshing.
O: For what it is, a light beer, it's pretty good.
