Pours a finger and a half of head on a light golden body.
The aroma is mild grain.
The taste is okay, mild grain and touch of bitter.
The texture is light and fizzy.
It wasn't enjoyable, lacked any real aroma or flavor.

when you are talking cheap american lagers, look no further than this one for one of the best in the game. no off flavors here, not the least bit sweet, and just good, easy drinking, refreshingly carbonated, yellow beer. not to be over analyzed i dont think, but when the sun is shining and seafood is on the table, this one is hard to beat if you dont want to drink down the fancy beers in the cellar or fridge. really nice head, and it holds on for a long time, especially for the style. the lager yeast is different too, less bready, more compatible with the light hops in here, and working sugars down to a very very dry finishing beverage. tasty, really no complaints for this, especially when compared to its peer group. best when ice cold, right from the can.

To me, its the perfect beer. Crisp, delicious, flavorful, yet easy to drink. Good anytime of year and is a damn good value.
