1/23/16 Chicago (12 oz bottle poured into tall glass). Very pale clear yellow pour, mild carbonation and head with decent lacing. Faint malt and corn aroma and taste. Somewhat sweet taste, mild hops. Very smooth going down, thin texture with clean taste. I liked their prior offering from decades past much better.

To be fair, I do not consume a lot of light beer. However, in an attempt to recapture my youth I decided to try this beer again. Poured from a bottle into a nonic pint glass. Color is a pale yellow. No noticeable malt or hop taste. That said, it is probably one of the better light beers on the market. It could make a good session beer but there are many, tasty craft beers that could also do the same.

Watery beer that is very easy to drink if you consume a case of beer every night and like to pretend you are a badass. I buy this when I'm broke and want to get drunk, but I'll be the first to admit that I'm drinking a low end domestic beer. As far as low cheap beers go though, this is one of the better light beers I think.
