I would swear this stuff was regular Busch beer. Busch was the first beer I ever tried years ago. And almost the last.. Yuk!

A bad attempt to sell bud light under a different name

Bottle pour. Not much head or lacing to speak of. This beer was basically okay. Typical adjunct lager, about the same as all the others. Give it a try, but don't expect much.

This is an unexceptional golden american lager with a nice white head (sudsy, with lace and a little staying power). The aroma is faint, with a bit of grain, grass, and not much else. The taste is a bit sweet, with a cereal note and limited bitterness or hop presence. It is a typical macro American Lager. Forgettable.
