Served in a Chicago Bears shaker pint glass.

Not sure why, but I felt compelled to try this tonight. It pours a clear pale straw topped by a finger of lightly dirty-white foam. The nose is nearly nonexistent, with only a vague powdered-sugar-like sweetness and a mild cornmeal finding their ways to my 'strils. The taste holds notes of hard water, rocks, very light and vague vegetable matter, and a tiny touch of sweetness. Man, this stuff is more like weird-tasting water than a beer. The body is pretty damn light, with a light moderate carbonation and an unsurprisingly watery feel. Overall, a pretty sad beer. ...I got nuthin else...

$1 single from the aforementioned gas station. Usually don't buy light lagers under any circumstance buttttt gotta try em all.

Pours a dehydrated piss yellow with a large bone white head as expected. Carbonation is heavy, lacing is pretty decent at the end of the swill.

Smells like your typical light lager though red stripe has also been far more corn forward in my opinion

Taste follows suit. Super corny with a mildy bitter lime presence for whatever reason.

Feel is light and watery as you'd expect but it swallows easy and luckily it has no skunk.

Overall I assume this was $1 because it was old and didn't sell or perhaps others from the pack had broken. Dunno but for $1 there isn't much to complain about. There are better adjunct lagers out there.
