If you like beer that tastes very watery... hear you go! This is something I would buy if there was nothing else on the shelves. I honestly dont know why millions of people buy this beer. Maybe it't the fact that it does not taste like beer. its more like some kind of oddly flavored soda to me

Had these because all other options were off the table.

Nose is corn, rice and more corn as this is an adjunct lager.

Taste is of cardboard, rice and hops. Nothing fills it out. This beer does not stand out in any way. It's hard to make a strong protest against it though. It isn't revolting, just very, very plain. It doesn't even leave an aftertaste. (I guess that's a good thing for an unimpressive major label beer.)
