I'm really not a fan of this beer. I had tried it before and I liked it for some reason. But now that I'm drinking on it for a bit, I'm realizing it tastes like a very mass-produced corny beer. Not a fan... If I wanted the taste of buy a pack of Coors probably. You can taste and smell the adjunct which I believe is overwhelmingly corn.

Nothing to this one. Light aroma and flavor. Metallic for some reason. Pale yellow in color. Skip it, unless you're bored with water. Better offerings are on the menu,

A pretty basic run of the mill light lager. Nothing to stand out here. Not bad though either. Just really doesn't have a flavor profile that makes it memorable.

Would Drink Again: Yes
Would Purchase Again: No
