12 oz can served in a pint glass.

Looks and smells like a standard American "yellow fizzy" beer albeit with a relatively large and fluffy white head.
Light flavor with mild bitterness. Clean and refreshing but with very limited flavor. Crisp dry finish.

Overall: Meek but more than acceptable as a hot day work beer.

From BeerAdvocate Magazine #84 (Jan 2014):

Another no-frills-labeled beer from World Brews, not too far off from “Generic Beer,” but the price tag of less than $4 a six-pack is what this beer is about. And to think this beer is being sold at Whole Foods, go figure.

STYLE: American Adjunct Lager
ABV: 4.5%
AVAILABILITY: Year-round

LOOK: Crystal-clear pale yellow straw, lacing struggles

SMELL: Grainy, dried grass, corn syrup, faintly herbal

TASTE: Big crispness, clean, lighter bodied, mild hop bitterness, grassy, faint cereal grain, hint of corn syrup, one dimensional hop character; dry, semi-clean finish

A pretty crappy macro lager. Metallic, sweet corn dust - basically a Coors.

The beer comes in a golden amber.

The aroma hits of sweet puree'd apples, apple sauce, hints of metallic, a touch of sulfur

A big sweetness up front of sugar and honey. Along with a slightly funky corn. A good biscuity sweetness as well. The beer is generally refreshing and cleans up reasonably well. The back end hits of that lager yeast quality.

The sweetness helps the beer out as the beer is not too dominated by unattractive flavors. Very light on flavor, but still one of the better AALs I've had.

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a light golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of light sweet malt, grain, a hint of grassy hops. Flavor is light sweet malt and slight grassy hops, a bit grainy. Light bodied. Pretty much what it is marketed as: a cheap version of an adjunct lager. Tastes OK, but even blander and lighter in flavor than the standard brands. A decent very cheap lager.

A: Darker than your straight up BMC macro's. Pale golden. Moderate carbonation for the style. Finger and a half of dissipating foam. Shrinks to a thin white cap. Bubbles are big, but don't rush to the surface of the beer. No lacing on the glass.

S: Hops are leafy and floral. Malt is grainy, sweet, a bit metallic and has some distinct cereal notes (corn).

T: About what one would expect. Metallic, grainy, a bit of adjunt (but less than anticipated). Slightly sweet in the mid palate, the grain domination takes over to finish this one out. Notes of apple. Aftertaste of lightly toasted grain. Not a completely dry finish, with some residual sweetness.

M: Pretty good for the style. Carbonation isn't overblown. Softer on the tongue than expected. This one has a bit of body to it.

O: You can do a lot worse for the style. This one is decent and the six pack was 2.99. Would buy again for game day and/or BBQ's.

Clear gold with a large white head that goes fairly soon leaving some spatters of lace. Poured from a can into a pint glass. Aroma, slight hop scent. Appearance- a good yellow gold color, surprising for the price. Taste- light hops taste, solid flavor not overwhelming. A good brew to drink after yard work. A thirst quencher. Bought at Whole Foods in Savannah, GA.
