Look: carbonated piss
Smell: nonexistent
Taste: not much
Feel: gassy

this is the beer people start with as kids when somebody's older brother buys it when you give him money to keep it a secret. Then as adults we develop taste buds and move on to real beer.

The first thing that happens when I drink this swill is I have to burp. I mean burp as in repeatedly. The taste isn't any better the second time.

Decanted from a 12 oz (355 ml) bottle into a conical pint glass; bottled on 12/12/2018.
A: Pours a crystal clear, bright golden color with a one inch, white head, low retention, and limited lacing.
S: Floral, grainy with light melon and citrus notes.
T: Dry. Generally flavors follow the nose. Very minimal bitterness. Very refreshing.
M: Light bodied with low effervescence.
O: Not really designed as a "big flavor" beer, eminently drinkable. Frankly, more flavorful than I though it would be. It is what it is.

You can pound these like no tomorrow...not much taste to it. It is pretty light in appearance; almost transparent when poured into a glass. A beer one can enjoy any time of day, month or year...if you're into light beers of course.

From notes 12/26/11: Pours a pale straw producing a couple of fingers of white loosely bubbled head that leaves little lacing as it recedes. Aroma is grain/cereal, white bread, some grassy and lemon hop hints. Taste is a slightly more robust version of the nose. A good choice if you want a beer, are forced to cut calories and can not get Yuengling Light, or if its free.

I’m the type of guy that drives Chevys and Fords because it’s American. But I can’t stomach this toilet water.

Why do so many people love this beer?
Is it just to fit in with the crowd? Is it to look cool? This "beer" is barely drinkable. Only way I'll drink it is if it's given to me. You can buy cheaper beers that taste better. Hell, Keystone and Busch are better than this. Overrated swill.

This is awful & I am not a beer snob I'm just telling how it is. An overload of corn syrup comes to mind as I drink this this. This is close to undrinkable. Cheers! D-
