Good malt flavor, and for an American Lager it has decent body, by which I mean it's not overly watery. Aftertaste lingers a bit. Crisp and refreshing, and it's cheaper than dirt. I got a six pack of tall boys (16 oz) for $5.25, and I've seen six packs of 12 oz LIGHT beer sell for more than that. You really can't go wrong with such a low price, plenty of bang for the buck.

Like most American lagers though, you really need to drink it straight out of the fridge. The closer it gets to room temperature, the more the taste of cooked vegetables dominates everything else.

Good taste, light, for everyone. Very refreshing but lacks character

Cheap golden color with a ton of carbonation. Flowery and hoppy smell; actually very good. Taste is MHL.

Pours a cool looking straw yellow to golden color. However, the head dissapeared almost instantaneously and leaves no lacing. Green apple aroma and malts as the drink warms. A fairly straightforward malt taste but pretty much watery and not so flavorful. Nice crisp feel when cold.
A typical macro style lager brew. Perhaps a step above BMC. I can see myself having this on a 95 degree beach day.
