Kind of taste like weed at first. Clear yellow and easy to drink. Not bad. I drank this with my brother and we both noticed that it gave us both a sharp headache.

Bought a 6-pack $5.99 Longs Drugs
Light clear color
Light mouthfeel
Light Carbonation
Slight malt taste, not much else
Overall worse than a Bud Light. It may be good to drink with food because it doesn't have any taste to distract you from the food itself, but by itself its a pretty bland beer.

This is a great yellow fizz water to enjoy with some spicy food on a hot day. There isn't a whole lot to it, but I didn't want a beer I had to think about, just quench my thirst. This hit the spot. Good stuff. Very underrated.

Pours a clear light yellow color with a one inch white head that dissipated very quickly and leaves no lacing. I have only had this beer at Chinese restaurants and have no idea of freshness or storage. That being said this beer always has some level of skunkiness to it. Smells and tastes of corn and grains with just a hint of hops. Light bodied, watery mouth feel, moderate carbonation.

It pours a light see through gold color with very little smell at all. The taste is ok but very watery. A mouthful of this does not leave much of any kind of flavor. I saw it in store any gave it a try, not impressed at all.
