Looks like a college beer (about the color of healthy urine), smells like a college beer (skunky), tastes like a college beer (how did I ever make it through college?!) I'm giving this a 1 because it wouldn't let me go any lower. I couldn't even finish it.

Very pale almost yellow color with a fleeting head. Aroma is grains with no hint of hops. Taste is very neutral with a thin, watery feel. This is overall a great "lawnmower" beer. Easy to drink on a hot day. It's especially good when you can get it BOGO at my local Publix!

You know what tastes like a lot of nothing? This beer. I can respect the idea that you want to make a beer even lamer than Corona. I mean, that is pushing the envelope. Kudos.

Pours out of a clear bottle. Talk about preconceived notions, but I'm telling you, that is a worthy and accurate stereotype. There isn't much of a beercentric smell going on here. Hops, malt, yeast? Nah. Water don't smell (well sometimes it does). More in common with cooked corn than beer ingredients.

Taste is minimalistic AF, there isn't much to speak of. Mouthfeel is light and airy. Carbonated. Conclusion: They went hard on the corn. Marketing is abound with this one. Dummy it up with some lime and shit.

This stuff hardly has any flavor and is darn near flat. Don't buy this stuff, you'd be better off with bud light than this watered down garbage. The box is says all sorts of stuff about quality but YUCK!

This beer pours a crystal clear deep golden color with a huge, fluffy, bright white head. Retention is excellent and there are thick, chunky sticky webs of lacing that look like a very thick chain link fence all over the glass. Honestly this beer looks incredible.

Smell is very bland. Grain, corn, and hay are all there, but very subtle.

Taste is the same. Very bland. The best I can say is that there are no off flavors.

Feel is light and creamy with moderate carbonation. I wish it was slightly more carbonated.

Overall this is not a good beer. I got done with 3 hours of yard work and ran down the street to the store for a reward. I grabbed a 6 pack of Alpine for later and a 16oz can (for $1) of this to consume immediately. All I can say is that although this beer is very plain and boring, under the right circumstances it is very refreshing.

No head when poured, leaves a dry mouth feeling, after taste of a rubbing alcohol or something like it. Will try another one

Pours a very clear gold. Smells of bready malt. Tastes slightly sweet and bready. Light bodied with medium carbonation. This is a refreshing lager, but nothing special.

12 oz clear bottled 3/9/17 poured into a pint glass at fridge temp 4.6% ABV. The beer was purchased in a closed 12 pack. The color is bright straw yellow with an orange tint. The head is white and lasts longer than normal for a AAL. The smell is faint grains, mostly corn and a little sweetness. There is very little taste. Just a little corn. Mouthfeel is thin, sharply carbonated and there is a strong oily/soapy finish that is unpleasant but not overpowering. Overall, ok. This seems to be a corn heavy recipe that's rushed into production and sold on marketing. There are better AAL for the money.

Pours a clear yellow color with a two inch, poorly retained white head that left blotchy lacing. Smells and tastes like malt flavored water with a little bit of skunk. Typical AAL. Light bodied, watery mouth feel, well carbonated.
