I'll start by saying that this beer surprised the hell out of me. Echoing Jack's review a bit down the page, I cannot believe that this beer is not more popular than every other light American piss beer.

Appearance: Light lager. You've seen a million of them.

Smell: Barely anything. Faint grainy malts.

Taste: This is what surprised me the most. It actually has something in it that resembles "flavor." Wow. I'm blown away. A beer from Anheiser-Busch with the word "light" on the label, and it has a flavor? Even some sort of hop presence? Unheard of. Why this isn't the Bud Light of the country instead of Bud Light is beyond me, and it seems others feel this way.

Mouthfeel: It feels like fizzy light beer.

Overall: This was refreshing on a hot day. It's what my dad drinks, and I stole one out of curiosity. It's definitely not something I'll purchase on my own dollar, but it was pleasantly surprising (which is of course, relative in the world of American light beer).
